A number of other museums focus on the history of the city, medicines, and machinery.
For sports fans the city hosts many different events and teams, the most famous of which are the football, rugby league, and cricket clubs.

The latter is the most successful cricket team in the UK with 31 titles to its name.
Whilst the Discovery Inn places its visitors within reach of these attractions as well as many others, it also poses as an ideal stopping point for some of the citys colourful events. Annually, Leeds Carnival takes over the city streets, filling them with colour, flare, and spectacle. One of the largest West Indian carnivals in the UK, this event is wildly popular and sees revellers take to the streets with a smile on their faces.
Alternatively, the Leeds Festival, a music fest featuring the biggest names in rock music, takes place at Bramham Park, just outside the city, each August, attracting somewhere in the region of 100,000 visitors. If camping and getting muddy isnt your thing, then a stop at the Discovery Inn Leeds is recommended, particularly as a shuttle bus services runs between the city centre and the festival.
