Leeds Minster

Kirkgate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 7DJ

New to Leeds? Or lived here for ages without learning much about your city? 

​Come with me from earliest times to the present day - Kirkgate to the West End. I'll explain how a little town where cloth was traded became the regional capital and a major centre for financial services, healthcare, learning, cultural activities and digital creativity. 

Meet at the west end of Leeds Minster - opposite the Lamb & Flag pub
