Leeds Museums and Galleries – what’s reopening this week

Kirkstall Abbey


Wildlife World is reopening from Monday, but please make sure you book a ticket before visiting.

(please also only go if you intend to send us pictures of the warty pigs afterwards)

The playground, toilets, shop and café will also be open.

For FAQ, follow the Lotherton Facebook page or visit our webpage.

Kirkstall Abbey

Kirkstall Abbey is fully open for all of your Cistercian monastic ruin needs, including the shop, which does sell ice cream.

Conveniently, research shows that the ruins are best enjoyed with a wry smile and ice cream around your chops.

We’re open Tues – Sun, 10am – 4pm.

Abbey House Museum 

Over the road, the shop at Abbey House Museum will be open. Hooray!

Temple Newsam 

Home Farm at Temple Newsam will be open from Monday, but please book online before you visit.

The playground and toilets will also be open along with Temple Newsam Tearooms for takeaways and outdoor seating. The shop will be open from Tuesday.

For updates, follow the Temple Newsam Facebook page or visit our webpage.

Leeds Industrial Museum

The shop at Leeds Industrial Museum will be open from Tuesday, so drop in and show the site a little support.

The grounds at Leeds Industrial Museum are open and beautiful, thanks to our hard working team of volunteers (who wrote a blog about it). Have a stroll through and admire their lovely green-fingers.

Leeds Art Gallery

The Leeds Art Gallery Shop will be open from Tuesday and stocked t’brim with local gifts and art inspired homewares if you’re planning a trip into the city.

The rest of our venues – and the indoor parts of these ones! – are gearing up to see you all in May.
