Holiday Planning

We have just booked a holiday cottage near Bradford, about 8 miles from the Cedar Court, for the 4 days before LX 2009 Eastercon here: http://www.hewendenmillcottages.co.uk/.

Any recommendations for cool things to do and places to go on while we're there? We're close to Haworth, though I'm not sure that's a major interest in this family, but RHS Garden Harlow Carr, the Royal Armouries, and the Worth Valley Railway look like good bets too.

And of course if anyone else is doing this maybe we could meet up...

Temple Newsam House has a rare breed farm as well as good gardens. Unfortunately the planetarium at Harewood House will be closed as they're moving to new premises in Bradford but the bird garden there is good. For big machines then there's the Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley or if you want something to do the same day as going to the Armories then the Thackray Medical Museum isn't far.

Well Leeds is full of good stuff - fabulous shopping, Victorian markets etc. I'm not sure how near the Dales are? And I'm sure the Sheffield sf group would welcome you with open arms!

Oh yeh, on looking - Skipton 20 mins away - Bolton Abbey is lovely and there's the steam railway - also fannish (where D and Hazel live!!) - Saltaire is also meant to be fabulous and I'm keen to visit it soon myself..
