Curious About Leeds - Heritage Walks for the Curious!, 18 January 2020–26 March 2022 - Book now

As we adjust to a few more freedoms and the familiar busy pace of life, we come to once again treasure those moments of calm. The oasis in the week where you take the chance to take a step back, breathe, relax and enjoy a gentle walk. For those who are city based, these can often be monotonous and repetitive, however, Curious about Leeds is a self guided walking tour that will have you falling in love with Yorkshire’s grand metropolis all over again.

unveil hidden stories of each stops past, giving you and alternative insight into the city’s past

You have a choice of two self guided routes. Both highlight the hidden gems, cultural landmarks and encourage you to look up and take in the beauty and Heritage of Leeds. Whether you’ve lived in the city for years or are relatively new to this warm and friendly northern hub, there will be unexpected histories to learn and new found appreciation to gain of architecture and monuments that you may walk past everyday. Let the tour unveil hidden stories of each stops past, giving you and alternative insight into the city’s past.

If you’re looking for something more lighthearted and fun, Curious About Leeds also offers a treasure hunt style tour. This is the perfect way of seeing a city when travelling with a group with mixed attention spans. The clues to each stop keep more active brains thoroughly engaged throughout and make heritage and history easily accessible.

One of the best parts of Curious About Leeds is that the tour can be done in your own time and your own way. It’s unsupervised, but you’ll be provided with all the materials you’d need to find your way around. Whether you’re on your own or in a group with family and friends, this low pressure but high quality experience lets you explore and satisfy your curiosity however you feel comfortable.
