Guests will meet near Leeds train station for a short introduction to the tour and each other, before setting off to the first stop, which is one of the oldest pubs in Leeds dating back to 1715. It's a short walk, stopping a couple of times for some historical facts.  After enjoying your first dish, guests will continue via Briggate to Leeds Kirkgate Market to meet some of the suppliers to the venues visited.
