Radisson Blu, Leeds

Radisson-The-Light

About the venue

Our main Wine School venue is right in the heart of Leeds, close to bus and train links; the Radisson Blu is easily reachable whether you are walking, using public transport or driving. The rooms are spaceous, and effortlessly transformed from a sociable round-table tasting to a more official accredited exam room. We offer every level of wine tasting here; whether you want a fun and friendly intro to wine or something a tad more advance, the Radisson can facilitate all of our events. Leeds is our WSET and WSG hub, so if you want a professional wine qualification, look no further!
