As someone who quit the booze last year and has been enjoying the hashtag sober life, I am proof that a good day or night out doesn't always have to involve alcohol. Since going sober, I've made it my mission to discover the best alcohol-free experiences in Leeds. Fortunately, the city has a thriving social scene that caters to all tastes and preferences, including those who prefer to abstain from drinking alcohol.

From artisanal mocktails to adrenaline-fuelled activities, there are plenty of ways to have a great time in Leeds without drinking. Here are some of the top alcohol-free activities in Leeds:

Go Ape

Located in Temple Newsam, just a short drive from Leeds city centre, Go Ape offers a range of high-flying activities, including treetop ropes courses, zip lines, and forest segways.

It's a great way to get your adrenaline pumping and enjoy the great outdoors without having to worry about drinking.

Located in the trendy area of The Light, Junkyard Golf is a quirky and fun destination that offers a unique take on traditional mini-golf. With three different courses to choose from, each with its own unique theme and challenges, Junkyard Golf is the perfect place to let loose and have a good time with friends, without the need for alcohol.

The venue also offers a range of delicious mocktails and non-alcoholic beers, so you can enjoy a few drinks while you play.

Visit the Royal Armouries Museum

The Royal Armouries Museum is a fascinating place to explore, with its collection of over 8,000 objects relating to arms and armour from around the world.

From medieval weapons to modern military equipment, there is something here for everyone to enjoy. You are never too old to have some fun here.

Take a walk in Roundhay Park

Roundhay Park is one of the largest urban parks in Europe and is a beautiful place to explore. Take a leisurely walk around the park's lake, or explore the gardens and woodlands. Stop off for a hot chocolate in the Lake Side cafe whilst enjoying the views of the lake, apologies in advance as you will likely be away many hours here.

Visit the Leeds Art Gallery

The Leeds Art Gallery is home to an impressive collection of 20th-century British art, including works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, and Francis Bacon.

Take a Canal Cruise

The Leeds and Liverpool Canal runs right through the heart of the city, and taking a cruise along its tranquil waters is a great way to see the city from a different perspective. You can book a guided tour or even hire your own narrowboat for a self-guided adventure. Along the way, you'll pass through historic locks and aqueducts, and enjoy views of the city's skyline and surrounding countryside.

Visit Kirkstall Abbey

Located just a few miles outside of the city centre, Kirkstall Abbey is a beautifully preserved mediaeval ruin set in picturesque parkland. You can wander among the ruins of the abbey, which was founded in the 12th century, and explore the museum and visitor centre, which tells the story of the abbey's history and the lives of the monks who lived there. The site also hosts a range of events and activities throughout the year, from outdoor theatre performances to mediaeval reenactments.
