The purpose of the Leeds Owl Trail® is to inform and inspire people about Leeds' rich heritage and to create new owls for future generations to enjoy.


"The Leeds Owl Trail is a unique concept that's brilliant for Leeds. It enables both visitors and residents from all backgrounds to explore and experience our beautiful city".

 Tom Riordan – Chief Executive Leeds City Council

What people say....

"Just like to say how much fun the owl trail is, we ended up with 2 very tired boys after searching for owls yesterday, I will be telling all my friends about this. Well done!!"
L Kemp (Leeds)
