Barnsley is a large town in South Yorkshire which, in recent years, has shaken off its image as a mining and industrial hub to reinvent itself as a centre for culture, nightlife and shopping. The proximity of Leeds and Sheffield has turned Barnsley into something of a magnet for commuters and other professionals, and the result is a lively, bustling town which still has a strong sense of local identity. Your local Barnsley escort will know all about that, and about how to make sure you both have the best possible time while you’re there.
If you want to learn about the rich history of the area then take a stroll round Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens. The museum itself is packed with exhibits and pieces of art, while the surrounding grounds offer more than 70 acres which alternate between manicured gardens and untamed parklands; the perfect place to enjoy a picnic or simply the chance to get away from the crowds and have your Barnsley escort all to yourself.
If you want to enjoy the art and culture of Barnsley you have two fantastic options ready and waiting in the town centre. The Cooper Gallery brings together brings together a collection of fine art pieces collected more than 100 years ago by wealthy local businessman Samuel Joshua Cooper. At The Civic, on the other hand, you can come right up to date by exploring a contemporary theatre and art gallery which plays host to a range of cutting edge performances and exhibitions throughout the year.
When it comes to shopping in Barnsley, the offer begins and ends with the vibrant street markets. If you’re looking for a treat for your delightful companion then this is the place to start, browsing through the stalls which line Cheapside and Queen Street. If you don’t find what you’re looking for here then try the designer outlets and boutiques which are housed in The Arcade, a covered shopping area located just off Market Hill, while the household names and high street brands are gathered in the Alhambra Centre.
When it comes to nightlife, Barnsley has plenty to offer, from traditional bars and pubs to top rated cafes and restaurants. A traditional pub like the Old Number 7 offers a range of cask ales, an on-site brewery and regular folk music sessions. If you and your Barnsley escort are looking for something a little more modern, then make your way to Che Bar and Coco’s Nightclub, a vibrant venue which offers spectacular drinks and pounding beats until the early hours of the morning. If you really want to make your girl feel special then why not ring ahead and book a package which entitles the pair of you to guest list entry and your own private ‘VIP’ booth stocked with delicious treats.
If you need something to eat after all that partying then, like so much of this part of the world, Barnsley is a place where you’ll be simply spoiled for choice when it comes to tracking down a delicious curry. If you want something a little less predictable, however, then book a table at Passion Food, which offers delicious European cuisine with a Polish twist, all prepared with the freshest ingredients.
