Leeds Valentine's Fair at Millennium Square Leeds, Leeds 9 — 18 February 2024 Entrance is free — Visit now

Love is in the air, and so is the anticipation of Valentines Day and the half-term holidays. Whether you’re loved up, single, or just hanging out with the family, you’ll be feeling the love at the Leeds Valentine’s Fair, this year dotted across Victoria Gardens, Cookridge Street, and Millennium Square.

Prepare for heart-fluttering experiences, with exciting rides, attractions and games to keep you entertained from start to finish. Spin your way into romance on the 360° spinning sensation, The Superstar, or reach new heights of love on the 40m-high Booster Ride. Swing into excitement with the huge pendulum, The Devil Rock, feel the butterflies on the Leeds Wheel of Light, and try not to let the romance crash on the Dodgems! There’s rides for people of all ages, so if you’re only little and not quite up for being spun around and thrown upside down, there’s so many other fun rides to choose from too!

And that’s not all, your taste buds will be feeling rather in love too, with delicious treats available at the various pop-up food stalls around the fair. Warm your heart and soul with yummy hot dogs, churros, donuts, candy floss and hot chocolates. Sugar rush / love rush? Same thing!

Leeds Valentine’s Fair will be spreading the love daily throughout the half term holidays, opening on Friday 9 February at 4pm, so if you’re stuck for something to do with the kids during the week, this is a (very fun) option to keep everyone happy.

So bring your loved ones, your friends, a new date, or come alone – whatever takes your fancy, and enjoy an exciting, love-filled trip at the Leeds Valentine’s Fair this February.
