Join Clifford Stead for an exciting walking tour that explores the history of Leeds Dock
Travel through time around Leeds Dock with local tour guide, Clifford Stead.

Fast forward to the present day, Leeds Dock and it’s neighbouring districts are now thriving business and leisure hubs, home to world-leading companies, stunning dockside developments and 80,000 people.
Attendees will also learn about historic events local to the area, including the world’s first railway and moving images as well as the abolition of the proposed Leeds Supertram.
This walking tour is approximately 3-miles in distance and is FREE to attend.
The walking tour starts at 12pm on Thursday 20 April on The Boulevard, in front of Department Leeds Dock, Please arrive 5-10 minutes early.
