The Leeds Food Tours championing independents with a walking Christmas feast around the city centre

Now that we’ve hit mid-November, it really is starting to feel like Christmas.

The Christmas-themed lights are illuminating the skies above Briggate; Chow Down has opened its Winter Village and we’re watching festive tipis pop up around the city centre as if they’re Christmas trees.

Naturally, the best way to come together for juletide spirits is to stuff our faces with pigs in blankets, sage and onion stuffing, turkey specials- and really, anything with cranberry sauce on it.

But rather than heading over to the same old place for the same old festive specials, Leeds Food Tours is bringing together the best of the city’s independents and championing the local food and drink offering with a special Christmas food tour.

Taking place across Sunday 4 December 2022, those taking part in this year’s Christmas food tour will be treated to six different venues, and there’s even mulled wine to keep you toasty at your first stop.

For those that have previously been on one of Leeds Food Tours before, founder Ellen Miller has ensured that each of the Christmas stops will be at completely different- so it’s a great chance to check out some new spots without repeating yourself.

In total the tour lasts four hours and involves stopping at six different locations across Leeds city centre, spanning a total walking length of 1.4 miles.

One of the most exciting components of the Leeds Food Tours is that its inclusive to different dietary needs. There’s vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options available, so there’s no worry of having to go hungry at all on this tour.

If you can’t make it to the Christmas special, Ellen runs regular foodie tours across the city, and can be either guided or self-guided depending on your preference- and either will make the ideal Christmas gift for anyone with a taste for exciting foodie options, and wants to support a local business this Christmas.

A feast for all the senses, Leeds Food Tours is a flexible guide around the city all based around food. The tours can take place any day of the week.

Those taking part in a self-guided tour simply need to follow the map and hand in special Leeds Food Tour tokens at each stop and welcome a range of dishes in return.

There’s a choice of bao buns, tacos, falafels and gyozas on offer- and that’s just the beginning.

Tickets to each food tour cost £65 per person, and include six stops across the city.
