Trains to Headingley

Headingley is a buzzy suburb of Leeds, West Yorkshire. Situated to the northwest of the city centre, it's a hotspot for both students and sports fans - Leeds Beckett University's Beckett Park campus is nearby, as is the internationally renowned Headingley Carnegie Stadium, home of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club, the Leeds Rhinos rugby league team and the Yorkshire Carnegie rugby union team. As you'd expect from a student-friendly area, Headingley has a high street packed with pubs, bars and vintage shops. It also boasts the superbly preserved Cottage Road Cinema, which has been showing films since 1912. The area's station lies on the Harrogate Line and dates back to 1849. About half a mile from the centre of Headingley, it's actually closer to nearby Kirkstall, but retains the Headingley name by virtue of being the main station for the famous stadium. Other nearby attractions include Kirkstall Abbey, a ruined monastery on the banks of the River Aire.
