About this Event

Join us for an hours walk through this historic and modern market. Meet by the M&S Centenary clock, in the 1904 Hall.

Here's what the food critic Grace Dent recently said about Kirkgate Market; it " is a joyful thing, and an unusual one. Old-school butchers and fishmongers, clothes stalls and spice vendors live happily side by side with Vietnamese banh mi sellers, a florist and a woman who sells knitting wool."

The market is considered of local, national and international importance. The US historians Schmiechen and Carls said it is, "one of the finest examples of market hall architecture".

The market tour contains uneven surfaces, steps, and heights. It is possible to avoid these features. Please mention any concerns to the guide.
