    Car Hire Leeds

    Leeds Car HireFamous for its historical architecture, Leeds is a vibrant city found in the north English county of Yorkshire. With numerous galleries, museums, parks and famous buildings, Leeds is a popular destination for both UK residents, as well as travellers from abroad. Being halfway between the cities of Edinburgh and London, and connected by an excellent network of roads and highways makes Leeds one of the best cities in the UK to tour with a rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Leeds is both easy and economical.

    The first place most people stop when visiting Leeds is the Millennium Square in the centre of the city. Park your hire car near the downtown area, and explore the square, which is often used as a concert venue, and is surrounded by several of the city's most important buildings. Leeds Civic Hall, Civic Theatre and General Infirmary are here, and most notably Leeds Town Hall, a grand 19th-century building which is richly decorated on the inside and highly popular with visitors. Just a little north of here is a museum that the whole family will enjoy. The Thackray Medical Museum, which was founded in the early 1900s, has exhibits on the history of medicine, as well as the human body. Many of the exhibits are extra large in size, made of plastics and there are several hands-on displays visitors can interact with.

    For a unique shopping experience, drive your rental car a few blocks south-east from the square, and check out Kirkgate Market. The largest covered market in Europe, you're bound to find a bargain or two among the many stalls. A short trip south across the river, you will find the Royal Armories Museum, another one of the popular attractions in Leeds. Here you can see one of the largest collections of weapons and armour in the UK, with many unique, rare and experimental weapons on display also.

    North of the city is one of the most famous attractions in the area, and one that is definitely worth a visit. Harewood House, home to the Queen's cousin, is regarded as being in the top ten residences in all of England. Complete with amazing gardens, aviaries, and a playground, there's fun for the whole family. Within the house, you can view a large collection of art that would rival many galleries. To see some amazing scenery, drive your rental car further north-west from Harewood House, and spend some time exploring Yorkshire Dales. An amazing national park with a diverse range of environments, the area has forests, caves, valleys, grassy hills, rivers and waterfalls all ready to be explored. A great day out in the fresh air of the countryside and just one of many day trip options for those staying in Leeds with a rental car.
