A walking tour of England's third largest city
Leeds has a reputation as being a northern industrial city, but Yorkshire's largest city is a surprising place. We know we have been here since the seventh century and have plenty of evidence to prove it . From Saxon crosses, Norman town planning , elegant Georgian squares and a wealth of Victorian buildings Leeds never fails to please the visitor. Our walk will take in all this including visits to interiors of certain of the landmark buildings. Our Kirkgate Market hall, thought to be the largest covered market in Europe will definitely be on the itinerary !
The majors sites of Leeds city centre will be seen including The Town Hall, Leeds Art Gallery, Kirgate Markets and The Corn Exchange. Of course, depending on the time of day or other circumstances some may not be open to visit. E. g. Kirkgate Market are closed on Sundays.

This custom tour was splendid. I will remember this day, cherishing the special surprises, views, history, and insights. Mike pointed out many hidden architectural, museum, and market treasures I would have missed on my own. The stories about the Millennium Gardens and tea in Leeds Library were special treats. It was a perfect combination of city walking and driving to see Kirkstall Abbey, the Adel parish church (an exquisite Norman church built around 1150), and the dales in the countryside.
