3. Leeds Zoological and Botanical Gardens
An audio walk that gives you the chance to take a guided stroll through the story of the Leeds Zoological and Botanical Gardens. The Gardens existed in Headingley between 1840 and 1858 and, although it proved a doomed venture, signs of it can still be seen around the area, including the bear pit on Cardigan Road. The walk begins and ends at the Chapel Lane entrance to Burley Park station in Headingley, taking around two hours to complete. There are ten stopping points along the route. The walk can be done at any time and audio files are available through Leeds Inspired.
