Travelling to Leeds.
Leeds is perfectly located for those visiting from the UK, and abroad. A central destination, easily accessible by road, rail and air, welcoming visitors from home, the continent, and further afield.
Travelling by rail is a perfect way to arrive, with regular intercity connections from cities all over the UK. Our station is one of the busiest in the country, and services bring in eager visitors from inbound arrivals at hubs like London Heathrow or Manchester airport. LNER will carry you here from London or Edinburgh, with HS2 set to speed up that journey in years to come. Transpennine are there to connect you to cities across the north, from Newcastle and Hull, to Liverpool and Manchester, and Crosscountry offer a wide variety of intercity services too.
Walking through the arrivals gate at Leeds Bradford airport will find you just 8 miles from the city centre. Hop onto a regular Flying Tiger shuttle bus, jump in a taxi, or hire a car from one of several international firms. 30 minutes later, you’ll be stepping into your hotel, or out into our busy, welcoming city. 75 direct destinations, across 24 European countries, plus 8 locations within the UK. A well connected welcome to Leeds.
Our accessible position on the UK motorway network makes reaching Leeds by road so simple. One way to travel is via National Express coaches, running from a host of UK destinations. Our city centre coach hub is just a short walk from many of our venues and hotels. Hit the M1 north to reach us from London, or the M62 if you’re travelling from a host of cities across the north. Wherever you’re driving from, we’re ready and waiting.
