Leeds Bradford International Airport was first opened as Yeadon Aerodrome in 1931, so you can truest they’ve had a lot of experience in getting passengers to their destinations. Carrying up to 2 million passengers last year, Leeds Bradford is a hive of activity, with lots of shops and restaurants where you can relax before taking to the skies. But where to go from Leeds Bradford? Here are some of our top choices for this year...


You can keep Las Vegas, you can ignore Miami, we reckon New York is the place to visit in the US of A. The Big Apple is an unforgettable experience, from the bright lights of Times Square to the quiet jazz clubs tucked away in side streets. The infamous yellow taxis will take you to the best shopping destinations in the world and you can indulge in some of the most stunning views ever from the Empire State. We could sit here writing all day and still not tell you about all the amazing things that NYC offers.


Definitely a place to go and completely relax, Madeira is a tiny Portuguese island in the middle of the Atlantic. It’s known across the world as the ‘island of eternal spring,’ so you can get a feeling for the breathtaking views, mild climate and vibrant flora and fauna you’ll find there. Just a few hours from Leeds Bradford International Airport, it’s a great place to travel to all year around with temperatures between 20 and 27 degrees, perfect for winter sunshine!


The party capital of the world might just be Ibiza. Ok, not officially, but let’s face it, Ibiza is the place to go for fantastic music, brilliant gigs, superclubs and days of sun, sea and sand. Of course there’s lots more to Ibiza than the awesome party nights, it’s home to some of the most beautiful beaches you could imagine, great bargains in the markets that dot the island and a fantastic variety of places to eat. You could be there in no time from Leeds Bradford International Airport. What are you waiting for?


One of the earliest routes from Leeds Bradford, was to Dublin and the 1960s and we think it’s still a great place to go enjoy a weekend of fun. Thinking ahead you could consider a quick trip for St. Patrick’s Day, the legendary Irish National day, where craic and ceoil (fun and music) is the order of the day. At any time of year, Dublin is a lovely choice for all the family. Check out the National Leprechaun Museum (yes, it exists!) see the ancient Book of Kells, or indulge in a pint of the black stuff and the Guinness Brewery.
