Kirkstall Abbey

The other week me and my brother went on a trip to Kirkstall Abbey and Kirkstall museum in Leeds. It's near where my brother currently lives, so one afternoon we had wander down. We first went to Morrisons to pick up a bit of food and some drinks because it was such a warm day! We went to the museum first, which we've both visited on a school trip years ago and we haven't been since so we thought we'd pop in. The museum isn't the best, but it has a pretty cool street inside which is recreated to how streets looked in Victorian times. It wasn't the biggest museum I've ever been and we would have gone round it all in probably 20 minutes but we managed to stretch it out for about 50 minutes. It costs £4 to get in, but you can get various discounts with Leeds cards. We went to the abbey after and had a wander round for about an hour. I've never been before, despite living about 9 miles away. If it was a bit sunnier it would have been perfect for a picnic but instead it started to rain a bit! We went back to Morrisons to pick up pizza for our tea then went back to my brother's to eat it! It was such a nice day and it was lovely to spend some quality time with my brother!
