Leeds City Centre

Leeds City Centre


If you visit the twenty five locations across Leeds City Centre marked on the Leeds Owl Trail map you will discover some unique owls. Suddenly you will set out on a voyage across history as each owl informs you of why it is there and gives you a brief snapshot of what it has seen in its lifetime. You can follow the Civic Owl Trail (40 minutes) and extend to the Grand Owl Trail for a longer journey (add another 1 hour 30 minutes).

You'll have to keep your eyes wide open as some owls are not in the most obvious of places. If you spot any other owls along the way that we have missed then please let us know!

The purpose of the Leeds Owl Trail is to inform and inspire people about Leeds rich heritage and to create new owls for future generations to enjoy.
