I’m not talking whippets ferrets and pigeons, I am however talking flat caps and a mass of Yorkshire food and drink brands.
By my estimation over the last 12 months I’ve completed somewhere in the region of 50 to 60 flights, wowzers!
So I’m no stranger to Airports, and whilst once upon a time I used to declare Manchester as my departure point of choice these days it’s all about the stupendously awesome Leeds Bradford Airport.
The amount of change I’ve seen at Leeds over the last few years as been incredible and what’s blatantly obvious for me is the passion the team there have to make Leeds Bradford the airport of choice for travellers.
The food options, the duty free options, the lounges have all changed over the years and that makes for an superb experience, as does the swift movement you can make through the airport security.
And now to make the Airport even more inviting to travellers passing through Yorkshire, there’s actually a Yorkshire Shop! Yes that’s right, a shop selling Yorkshire Stuff. Genius! The Scot’s do it, the Swiss do it, Heathrow does it, they all have shops themed with gifts of the area, but surely nothing is going to be as great as Yorkshire gifts!
The Deliciouslyorkshire pop-up shop at Leeds Bradford Airport is situated in the departures area of the airport and is open now until Christmas Eve so your going to need to be quick to catch a glimpse.
They stock a range of products from over 20 producers across the county including new artisan offerings and iconic world-famous brands, showcasing local beers, ciders, spirits, jams, chutneys, sweet treats and gifts.
And If you’re unsure of taking additional items away with you on your trip, no problem, take advantage of the flexible “collect on return” option, your purchases will be saved and be ready for collection on return.
