Sarah, that showed us around Leeds yesterday, was very knowledgeable & made the tour very enjoyable. Gave us a great insight into the history & things to look out for & an enthusiasm to go back to explore more places visited in depth i.e. we went & had lunch in the tiled cafe at the Leeds art gallery, which is an amazing room.
