Attraction Information

Curious About Leeds is a journey of discovery: an exciting glimpse into what makes this fabulous city what it is.

Our two unique walks can be enjoyed separately, or joined together to form one longer walk, depending upon available time and energy! They will expand your knowledge, entertain and challenge you, and help you to stay mentally and physically fit! Walks typically take 1 to 2 hours each.

Walk 1: Art Gallery to River Aire

The start of the walk is a showcase to Leeds' diverse culture, from the majestic Leeds Art Gallery, through Mandela Gardens to the imposing Civic Hall. Next we pass the City Museum before heading down the elegant Victorian Arcades. Then it's on to the hustle and bustle of the Kirkgate Market and Corn Exchange before passing by the former mills of the Calls, which played such a significant part in Leeds' prosperity, before ending your walk at Leeds' waterfront. (1.3 miles / 2.1 kms)

Walk 2: River Aire to Park Square

This is a walk of many contrasts: starting with a peaceful stroll by the River Aire, before taking a trip through the founding streets of Leeds. Next it's on to a little known, tastefully constructed square, before heading to the busier City Square with its imposing buildings and delightful statues.

The walk ends at the sophisticated Park Square with a backdrop of the fabulously architected St Paul's House. (1.3 miles / 2.1 kms)

Have fun and stay curious...
