Travelling to Leeds

Leeds is served by two major airports:

Manchester Airport (MAN) is approximately 60 miles from Leeds (1 hour 6 minutes by taxi), however, due to the internal train station Leeds can easily be accessed this way ( or alternatively you could organise an airport transfer should you prefer, (

An alternative option would be to fly into Heathrow in London (LHR), approximately 200 miles from Leeds. Due to this, we would recommend travelling by train. Heathrow Airport offers an internal train station into London City Centre, Kings St Pancras Cross Railway station. From here you will be able to get a train to Leeds. Details of trains can be found at

Leeds Train Station is in the centre of Leeds and is a 20-25 minute walk (or 5 minute taxi ride) away from the University.
