    Mr Strix is on holiday for a couple of weeks, so we're looking for places for a good day out

    We've got free train travel, so if we had a trip out to Leeds, is there somewhere we can take a dinky little person (under 1) and a small, well behaved hound for lunch, and where else might we be able to visit?

    If the weather's good you could head out to Kirkstall Abbey, there's a nice little cafe by the museum, and it's a nice walk around the Abbey grounds and there's a play park for kids. Not sure about taking a dog into Leeds centre, if that's what you had in mind? Roundhay Park and Temple Newsam are both just a bus ride away too, and they have cafes and play areas. Leeds City Council website has lots of maps and bus info and all the opening times. http://www.leeds.gov.uk/Leisure_and_culture.aspx

    Thanks FS - we'll be arriving by train, so we'll be travelling through the city centre no matter what I suppose

    Roundhay Park is great for dogs :) We've enjoyed a few walks there in past years, often after having been to the Dogs Trust open day

    I'd agree with Roundhay park as a good place for dogs and little ones. You can take dogs in the centre but I remember taking mine through (out of necessity) a few years ago and some people can be intolerent of them. There's also the canal, which is a nice walk, so you could go for a picnic/stroll.
