A timeless trail and a tab at The Chemic Tavern

The Chemic Tavern

Win this prize and you can head off to the Meanwood Valley Trail just north of Leeds city centre. It’s a glorious place to wander, taking you past Woodhouse Moor and Ridge. Break up your walk with a sweet £150 bar tab at the cosy Chemic Tavern. This friendly pub is a firm favourite if you’re setting off for a pootle or need warming up at the end, and you’ll be able to sample their craft ales and extensive spirits range. There’s live music to enjoy most days too. Start your walk by heading to Woodhouse Moor on the 1, 6 or 27 bus on the Headingley Line – you’ll be there in around 23 minutes, with services every five to six minutes.

The glories of Otley Chevin and a nook at North Bar Social

North Bar Social

If you’re our winner, you can jump on the bus to explore the sensational views of Otley Chevin. This gorgeous Otley Chevin Forest walk has everything you need – unforgettable vistas, woods and wildlife, remains of mysterious cottages and even a sculpture trail. Once you’re done, descend to Otley itself for a session at North Bar Social, used to welcoming walkers and their dogs with ales from the North range and guest beers galore. You’ll have a £50 tab waiting for you. Grab the X84 on the Headingley Line – they run every 30 minutes and will have you in Otley in about an hour.

A woodland walk then tap time at Terminus

Terminus Tap Room

Another prize? Yes indeed! Terminus Tap Room and Bottle Shop is your base for a walk through Meanwood Park to The Hollies, Meanwood Bank and on to the Seven Arches Aqueduct and Golden Acre Park. It’s a glorious part of the city, rife with ruins and natural beauty. Terminus itself boasts 18 draught taps which change regularly and you’ll have £100 to spend on a tipple-tastic tour of them. There are cask and keg delights, cocktails, wine and even hard seltzer. Get yourself there on the 7, 7A, 51, or 52 on the Meanwood Line, buses run every 5 to 10 minutes and will have you there in 30 to 40 minutes.
