TV & FILM TRAILS IN YORKSHIRE

West Yorkshire is a scenic area that regularly attracts TV and film crews who use the pretty towns and villages as backdrops for many of the programmes we know and love. This break visits some recognisable locations on both the big and small screen and also includes a visit to the superb National Media Museum.

The three star Mercure Leeds Parkway is set in a tranquil spot near the Yorkshire Dales. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Excellent facilities include a good restaurant, cosy bar and indoor pool. The hotel has a lift.
