Sundays. They just feel different. They have a quality all of their own unlike any of the other days of the week. So make the most of yours with this list of suggested things to do in Leeds to make your Sunday a superb one.

  • Restaurants

A good breakfast or brunch is the perfect start to your Sunday and you can't go far wrong when you treat yourself to breakfast or brunch at one of those Leeds restaurants or cafés that know a thing or two about breaking fasts. And whether it's kickstarting your day in style, soaking up the booze from the night before or simply indulging in a mealtime far too often forgotten, these places will do you right of a morning. It's the most important meal of the day too, dont you know. Enjoy.

  • Things to do

You're full and need to walk some of that tasty morning meal off, but nothing too strenuous - it's Sunday after all. Perfect the to have a leisurely, calming walk through any of the city's fine art galleries. From the world-class sculpture at The Henry Moore Institute to the varied Leeds Art Gallery collection, the exhibitions and permanent pieces at Temple Newsam House (the 'Hampton Court Palace of the North') and the diverse displays at The Munro House Gallery, Leeds does very well when it comes to its art galleries.

Lambert's Yard
  • Shopping

Sunday just doesn't feel like the right day to go on a big shopping frenzy so, having had a casual look through the gallery shop to whet your appetite, how about visiting this independent concept store and creative event space is housed in a collection of historic buildings in the City Centre to find something a bit different?

Fancy a film?
  • Film

And as your day turns to evening and the pull towards the start of yet another week grows ever stronger, there's nothing like a cracking good film to take your mind off things. Blockbuster? Indie flick? Old classic? Check out our guide to films and cinemas in Leeds and take your seat.

The best pubs in Leeds
  • Bars and pubs

So, what did you think of the film? Love it? Loathe it? Why not go to one of the best pubs in Leeds and talk it over? Grab a pint, a glass of red, maybe two, and forget about Monday morning for just another hour...
