Trains to Leeds

Leeds railway station is located on New Station Street, and serves both national and regional routes. The station was originally opened in 1938 and became the city's main rail hub after the closure of Leeds Central in 1967. It was greatly modernised in 2002 and 2008 to make it one of the most high tech and best served stations in the country. Leeds Station is situated to the rear of the famous Queen's Hotel, and all of the city centre's attractions are just a few minutes’ walk away.

Leeds Bradford Airport is in Yeadon, 6.9 miles northwest of Leeds city centre. It serves Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and the rest of Yorkshire. One of the best ways to get there is by train, which can save you money and time. A convenient Flying Tiger bus service runs from Leeds to Leeds Bradford Airport terminal. Buses run 7 days a week, every half an hour. Buses also run from Bradford Interchange and Harrogate train stations.
