What people are saying about Leeds

Being two disabled patrons we found all the staff very helpful and accommodating but we only found out that the visitors carpark on the site for disabled was all loose stones. That didn't do well for my partners wheelchair found it hard going with her carer helping he push. I was with crutches and I struggled with the surface as well. Maybe you could tarmac it or put matting down to make it fully accessible. I would recommend the tour to both my able bodied and disabled friends to go but let the disabled ones know about the carpark. We really enjoyed it and the tour guide was interesting and knew a lot but with it being a big group we struggled at time's to hear but was great.

The guide (Duncan) was brilliant, very knowledgeable, with a great sense of humour, our driver was great too, we were taken to lots of village locations Inc original Emmerdale farm village and woolpack, where we had a drink and a look round the pub,lots of photo opportunities along the route, with a quiz on the way back to Leeds, all in all a fabulous day out, a must for Emmerdale fans esp original Emmerdale Farm fans
