Groups can putt their way through all sorts of bizarre holes, think UV disco, scrapyard slides, circus freaks and jungle bathtubs.

And don’t forget to hit the main bunker bar afterwards for some delicious fairground style hotdogs, salted caramel popcorn and more!

Enjoy afternoon tea with a floral twist

Fleur Café at The Light recently opened its wisteria-clad doors, serving a range of desserts, pastries and high-quality teas and coffees as well as its delicious afternoon tea.

Featuring canapés, petit fours, macarons and scones, you can sit back, relax and take in the beautiful floral surrounding and cascading flowers.

Watch the latest films for less

Perfect if you’re feeling the pinch post-festive period (aren’t we all?!), Vue cinema at The Light in Leeds is one of the limited cinemas across the UK to offer tickets to its 2D films for just £4.99 as part of its Every Film Every Day offer.

The perfect excuse to watch the conclusion to the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, or even the new star-studded crime thriller The Gentlemen. And by saving money on your tickets, you’ll have more to spend on popcorn.
