Details

Join one of our knowledgeable M&S Guides to take a very special tour of Leeds. Starting from the M&S Stall at Kirkgate Market – where the company started 130 years ago, you’ll follow our Heritage Trail and trace the history of M&S through the city. From the birthplace of a British institution to the state-of-the-art Michael Marks Building housing the Marks in Time Exhibition, your guide will bring the remarkable story of Marks & Spencer to life.

Tours start from the M&S Clock at our Heritage Stall at Leeds Kirkgate Market, and last about 90 minutes. Your tour will end at the M&S Company Archive and includes complementary refreshments and a chance to look round the Marks in Time Exhibition.

Tours run as part of the M&S Company Archive Events Programme, and can also be booked in advance for group visits – please contact the M&S Company Archive at companyarchive@marksandspencer.com or on 02087182800 for more details.
