Who needs a black cab when you can travel in Leeds by water taxi?

Water taxis run between the two pick-up/drop-off points at Granary Wharf – by the south entrance to Leeds Station –and Leeds Dock every 20 minutes.

There are two bright yellow vessels in service, named Twee and Drie. Travelling won’t cost you a thing and, according to the Leeds Dock website: “All you need to do is hop on and enjoy the scenic journey.”

If you’re planning to hop on board this weekend, wrap up warm as temperatures aren’t likely to venture very far into double figures. There will be some cloud and rain in the morning but it will clear around midday to sunshine and a few showers – so bring a brolley.

Passengers are encouraged to share pictures of their journey on social media @LeedsDock.
