Grab your loosest pants and your comfiest shoes – it’s time to experience the city as you’ve never seen it before.
With incredible eateries hidden around each and every corner, Leeds is a haven for foodies. But with so many options, how do you know where to go? Leeds Food Tours is here to help, running guided and self-guided tours for hungry explorers. From historic boozers to sustainable restaurants and everything in-between, you’re sure to find your new favourite hangout.
Explore Leeds’ wonderful independent food scene
Leeds Food Tours is the brainchild of Ellen Miller, an avid foodie and your guide for the day. She’ll take you under her wing as you embark on the ultimate adventure in gastronomy, hitting the streets in hunt of marvellous morsels. You’ll visit no less than six indie venues, with food and drink included at each and every stop. One thing’s for certain – you won’t be going home hungry.
Not only will you get your chops around the finest cuisine Leeds has to offer, you’ll also dig into a feast of facts, as Ellen shares her impressive knowledge of the city’s food and drink history. It’s not just for tourists either, oh no. Whether you’re new to the city or Yorkshire through and through, a tour is the perfect way to discover new restaurants, hidden gems and must-try dishes.
Guided or self-guided, the choice is yours
There are two ways to take on this unique view of the city. Head out on a guided tour and you’ll join a team of likeminded foodies, led by the lovely Ellen. The guided tours take place on Saturday in groups of no more than 12, but you can book a private tour on another day if there are six or more of you. Expect an unforgettable afternoon of food, drink and cracking conversation.
Prefer to do it at your own pace? Check out six carefully-curated venues in your own time with a self-guided tour. You’ll receive a physical pack with a map, instructions, fact cards and food tokens, which you can exchange for tasty treats like bao buns, tacos and loaded fries. With no need to book in advance, it’s perfect for gifting or spontaneous adventures.
Larger group? Enjoy something a little different
Whether it’s a team wellbeing day, a birthday or even a stag, you can book a larger group tour for your next occasion. Available for groups of 6 to 30, you can go for a standard tour or something completely bespoke. Wine pairings along the way? You got it. With food and drink built in, plenty of time for socialising and your own personal guide, it’s sure to be a day to remember.
Discover the tastiest parts of Leeds
Leeds Food Tours are available in two options – the guided tours cost £60 per person and the self-guided option is £85 for two people. With gifting options available, it’s the perfect way to treat the foodie in your life.
