What to expect

Join 'Beer Evangelist' Mike on an award-winning, fun and immersive tour of Leeds, learning about the rich history of beer in the city, whilst sampling fine ales along the way!

The tour begins at The Tetley, which was the Headquarters for Leeds' most famous brewery, Joshua Tetley and Sons. Here, learn about the history of the brewery and look around the site. The second stop is The Adelphi, Tetley Brewery's flagship pub built in the late Victorian period. You'll get to discover the history of the pub, other old breweries in the city and how it compares to the modern brewing scene.

From the Adelphi, the tour walks to the Duck & Drake via other sites of historical interest. These include the location where the first ever moving picture was filmed as well as Leeds Minster church. Find out why the railway embankment is covered in gravestones. The Duck & Drake is on Kirkgate, Leeds' oldest street with a dark past which you'll get to find out all about!

The next stop will be at the pub that claims to be the oldest in Leeds; Pack Horse on Briggate. Here you will also learn about the brewing process, as told through the eyes of a Leeds-based brewery in the mid-1900s. Finally, the tour ends at Whitelocks Ale House, also on Briggate. This is arguably Leeds' most iconic pub, with its internal decor dating to the 1890s. Here, you'll be able to explore the rich history of Whitelocks and the wider Briggate area.

After a fun day out exploring Leeds' fascinating beer history, the tour will come to an end.
