YEP Children’s Panel young reporter Jayden Yeardley shares his favourite places to visit to help beat the boredom during the Easter break.

There are lots of things that young people can do in Leeds during the Easter holidays.

You can take part in a variety of different activities including swimming and much, much more.

My favourite place to visit is Leeds Climbing Wall mainly because I like climbing and you can go when it’s raining because it is indoors.

I also like our nearby Roundhay Park because it has amazing parks, a cafe and two lakes to walk around.

The only problem is that it is outside so if it’s raining it will be muddy and wet.

My next favourite is again a park called Temple Newsam and I especially like it in Easter when there are baby lambs for visitors to see.

If the weather isn’t particularly favourable you could visit Tropical World.

It has recently reopened and now has even more animals to visit including an octopus and crocodiles.

If it is an especially sunny day you could take a visit to Harewood House to play in the amazing play ground and go round and see all the birds at the estate.

York Railway Museum is a great place and it is free entry too.

If you’re interested in history you could go to Leeds City Museum on a rainy day but avoid visiting on a Monday because it is closed - except for bank holidays.

In my Easter holidays I like to go to the Royal Armouries because it’s free, very interesting and good for wet days.

If you have some spare time and you are into medicine and history then you might want to go to the Thackray Medical Museum which is great fun and there are lots of activity’s to take part in.

One of my favourite places to visit is Harlow Carr in good weather and there is something for everyone.

This is my list of favourite places to go in Leeds at Easter and I recommend for everybody to try them out.
