About the Event

The North East Area Council invites members to our visit to the hidden areas of Leeds station.

Rumours about secret spaces under the streets of Leeds may easily be dismissed as far-fetched urban myths, but a hidden side to the city actually does exist. There are a startling number of mysterious underground areas which have long been forgotten. Some passageways extend beneath Leeds railway station, while others lead off towards City Square and the banks of the River Aire.

The visit will include a guided tour of the station undercroft followed by a networking opportunity and refreshments at the West Riding pub opposite the railway station.

Places are limited to 13 for this visit. Therefore please register as soon as possible, as places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
