About

I’m Nell, owner of Leeds Food Tours and your personal food tour guide! I’ll be taking you around the city and showing you my favourite independent restaurants, bars, cafes and street food vendors to give you a taste (see what I did there?) of Leeds’ best local food and drink.

Let me tell you a little about myself, how I started Leeds Food Tours and what it's all about, with the hope that it will give you that extra nudge to book a tour. 

I've lived in Leeds for 9 years and in that time I've spent most of my time and money on eating and drinking around the city. The culinary scene in Leeds has rapidly developed in this time, with new places opening constantly! I've become more and more passionate about supporting small, independent eateries and suppliers and have loved getting to know the people behind these businesses. At the same time, I've come to understand why it's so important to support the local economy and promote sustainable living. 

When I'm not guiding you around the city and feeding you a tonne of food, I love to travel and write, and spend most of my spare time working on my travel blog. The reason that I mention this isn't just to insert a cheeky link, it's because Leeds Food Tours came about whilst I was writing a blog post about things to do in Leeds. I've booked onto plenty of food tours on my travels, but I realised when writing that post that the same thing didn't exist in Leeds...

...So here we are! 

My tours are designed to support independent restaurants and local suppliers, whilst making sure that you eat some really good food and come away with lots of new foodie knowledge. 

I'd love for you to book a tour with me, and if you have any questions before booking please do contact me and I'll be happy to help.
