Treat dad to a night away with a tailoring experience sewn in this Father’s Day

If you have a tight-knit relationship with your dad, treat him to a night away and a unique tailoring experience with Mercure Leeds Centre’s new hotel package.

Every father would agree that spending quality time with their kids – whether they are three or thirty – is the greatest gift they could get.

Knowing this, and that a bespoke gift goes a long way too, Mercure Leeds Centre has unveiled a unique experience package in partnership with Hemingway Tailors.

Sons and daughters can treat dad – and mum if she’s lucky – to an overnight stay, hearty breakfast for two, as well as a special visit to the tailor to get a made-to-measure shirt worth £250. If you book in advance, the tailor can come to the hotel too.

One of the leading tailoring establishments in Leeds, Hemingway’s shirt service was created over 60 years ago. To this day enables men to personalise casual, suit or formal shirts down to every detail – dad will walk away feeling dapper and spoilt.

The unique experience celebrates the city’s textile heritage and, when it comes to surprises, is guaranteed to hit the needle on the head.

Back at the hotel, which is located near the city’s iconic Victoria Quarter, guests will enjoy a variety of subtle design touches that also bring this local story to life, including tailoring motifs in the bedrooms, lobby, restaurant and bar.

Ruslana Yarmoluk, General Manager at Mercure Leeds Centre, commented:We’re always looking for unique ways we can help our guests discover the amazing local stories on our doorstep. We’re delighted to have teamed-up with Hemingway Tailors. It’s such a special experience for guests, and a great way to discover more about Leeds. Our local surroundings and the history, stories and artisans in our communities shape the story of our hotel and the experience our guests have. We love that through this, and other experiences, we can help guests be inspired by their local discoveries.”  .”
