Leeds Library and Thackray Medical Museum
Monday 29th April 10am to 4.30pm
£38 per person includes lunch, entry and tour fees and morning refreshments

The Tour begins at The Leeds Library in the city centre. Founded in 1768 as a proprietary subscription library, it is now one of the oldest surviving examples of this sort of library in the British Isles. We will have a guided tour and tea/coffee and biscuits in two groups. We will then enjoy a two-course lunch at the nearby Victorian “Whitelocks Ale House”. In the afternoon we will visit the Thackray Medical Museum where we travel back in time to Leeds in 1842 where a lecturer will lead us through a Victorian Slum Street, (non-seated talk). This is a last chance to see this Museum before it closes for redevelopment.
