The Leeds Peace Trail is a walking tour around Leeds city centre, telling a range of fascinating stories of peace and peace-making – each connected with people, groups and places in the city, past and the present.

T4P, Leeds City Council and the Peace Museum have picked a range of sites of historic interest, each with a story that raises awareness of timeless issues such as war, immigration, equality, nuclear effects, human rights, apartheid, violent crime, destitution, and campaigning.

There is a long route (allow 2 hours 30 mins) and a short one (allow 1 hour 30 mins).
