Where To Stay For The Tour De France's Opening In Leeds

42 The Calls

If you’re not completely sported out by the World Cup, may we remind you that the Tour de France is kicking off next month – and, for the first time ever, it’s starting in Yorkshire (yes, as in Yorkshire, England. Long Story. Not that uncommon. Don't ask).

The opening ceremony – the Tour’s biggest to date – takes place July 3 in Leeds, and tickets are still available from £50.75.

So where are you going to stay?

Leeds is full of gorgeous hotels, from your Malmaisons and Novotels (yes, even the Novotel is snazzy in Leeds) to ones of a kind like 42 The Calls, in an 18th-century converted corn mill, and The New Ellington, a swish, boutiquey kind of place. It also has a proper grande dame in the shape of The Queens. All are showing availability for under £100 for the night of the opening ceremony.
