Details

_Before computers, before telephones, before offices as such … Walk with me from the late 18th century to the middle of the 19th century_ 

What happened before there were purpose-built offices? Where did lawyers, bankers, insurance agents, stockbrokers, surveyors and other ‘white collar’ professionals carry out their work? How did an identifiable office district emerge? Follow the story from the medieval yards, via Albion Street to the impressive edifices of Park Row and beyond. 

Your tour guide, Rachael Unsworth, researched the history of the office district with economic historian Professor Maurice Beresford. Find out more about your guide here: https://www.leedscitywalkingtours.co.uk/ [https://www.leedscitywalkingtours.co.uk/]

Meet outside Santander, Briggate LS1 6AS – close to the junction with Albion Place.
