Pollen Hotspots in Leeds

West Yorkshire has the highest proportion of urban natural land cover in the UK . As the largest city in this part of God’s Own County - and with more than 4,000 hectares of green space itself - Leeds is one of the UK and Europe’s greenest cities.

From leafy suburban parks to grand city centre shopping arcades filled with flowerbeds, those with hay fever may need to do a bit of planning or come prepared with your Allergy Comfort Wipes.

Roundhay Park, Temple Newsham and Golden Acre Park are all pollen hotspots across Leeds, but mostly out in the suburbs. In the city centre, the grassy areas of Park Square and Woodhouse Moor are also popular places for pollen.

Hay Fever Friendly Activities in Leeds

Yorkshire generosity extends to pollen levels in spring and summer, when the pollen count in Leeds hits its high. Tree, grass and weed pollen all reach peaks at different times – so it’s worth planning any trips to the city’s parks and woodlands when they are lower.

3. Kirkgate Market

Museums

Once you’ve shopped (but before you’ve dropped) delve into the cultural and historical delights in and around Leeds.

1. Thackray Museum of Medicine

2. Leeds City Museum

3. Leeds Industrial Museum

Indoor Events

Leeds is a cultural hub in the north, with an array of venues putting on plays, gigs, comedy shows and more. Even if local lads The Kaiser Chiefs aren’t to your tastes, or you’ve seen every Alan Bennet play going, there’s plenty more to see in the city’s indoor, pollen-free venues:

1. City Varieties Music Hall

2. Leeds Grand Theatre

3. The Wardrobe
