What to do in Wetherby
Wetherby is a beautiful town with lots of scenic sights and plenty to do. The town centre is bustling with independent shops, pubs and restaurants.

Kanyu has three escape room experiences ranging in difficulty and theme. Each escape room requires a minimum of 2 players to 8. You will be locked in the room and will need to solve the puzzles, using clues and your team’s skills, to escape in the time frame. All experiences take a maximum of an hour to complete, if you escape in under an hour you can test your skills against more difficult rooms on your next visit.

Where to Eat
There is something for everyone in Wetherby as far as dining goes.
Our favourite Italian has to be Sant Angelo which is located just off the market square and has a great outdoor seating patio for warmer weather.
For the wow factor we love Don’t Tell the Duke and we highly recommend their Surf and Turf sharing board for a smorgasbord of steak, lobster and king prawns.
For the best roast dinner in the area we recommend The Scott’s Arms, it’s a 5-minute drive from Wetherby but it’s well worth the journey.
