Group tours

You can request a special tour to suit your interests and timetable.

Prices: Two-hour tours cost between £8 per person for large groups and £25 per person for a very small group. A personal tour for two hours is £50. Half a day for a group is never more than £250. 

Special prices for schools. 

Let's talk! The sliding scale is inevitably a bit lumpy but I always manage to arrive at a price that clients consider reasonable.

I've guided many different kinds of groups:

  • private groups - big birthdays, special anniversaries

Maybe you're celebrating a family event and would like a memorable occasion that involves more than a party? 

  • geography undergraduates

  • ‘A’ level students

  • Geographical Associations

  • Leeds Civic Trust, including for Heritage Open Days

  • local companies: induction for new staff & 'away days'; hosting clients & visitors

  • local residents interested in their city - newcomers to Leeds, those who've lived here all their lives and others who fancy learning more

  • University of the Third Age (U3A) groups from Yorkshire & beyond

  • international visitors

  • newly-arrived international students

  • conference delegates

  • groups of university alumni back in Leeds for reunions

Even better for learning: get me to give an illustrated talk first (in person or via Zoom) and then gain more understanding by coming on a tour. 

Since 2003, I've given over 100 talks for companies, schools, community groups, U3A, WI and other organisations.

Makkah mosque tour Jan 2017

This is a group of newcomers to Leeds – mostly from mainland Europe. We started in the Georgian West End, in the area around Hanover Square, and progressed through the dense Victorian housing which is now a multi-cultural area. I’d arranged for us to visit the Hindu Temple that sits amongst red brick back-to-back houses and then, via a curry lunch, we went on to the main mosque where the Imam and his team gave us a warm welcome. We finished at Left Bank Leeds, a converted church in Cardigan Road.


Another tour starts at Kirkstall Abbey and shows how the 12th century links right through to the 21st century in Cardigan Road.
