Leeds Minster

Kirkgate, Leeds, LS2 7DJ

A walk that explains how a riverside hamlet became a city

Come with me on a walking tour 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 and digital creativity. 

Meet by the main door on the north side of Leeds Minster (the parish church). PLEASE NOTE: the map pin is on the postcode. The Minster is clearly marked a bit further east (OK, to the right! But I am a geographer.)
