Getting to the University of Leeds

The SSiRC workshop will take place in the Business School (Maurice Keyworth building) on the former Leeds Grammar School site, at the junction of Clarendon Road and Moorland Road (about a mile from Leeds city centre).
When arriving at the meeting, please first come to the Clarendon Building (just behind the main Maurice Keyworth building), to collect your badge and information from the registration desk in seminar room GR.01.
The main workshop talk sessions will be in the Maurice Keyworth building Lecture Theatre G.02, whereas lunch and coffee breaks will be in the Clarendon Building room GR.01. 
The City of Leeds is served by two major airports: Leeds Bradford and Manchester. Regular flights are available from a large number of European and International cities. Leeds Bradford airport is approximately 8 miles from The University and taxis cost in the region of £20. Manchester airport is 59 miles from The University and has excellent train and motorway links to Leeds. Although Leeds and Manchester are the most convenient airports, there are excellent fast trains from London Kings Cross to Leeds. Flights to London airports followed by a 2 hour 15 minute train journey are also feasible when considering carbon footprint.
Taxis from Leeds Bradford Airport cost from £20 – £25. Taxis from Leeds Train Station cost £5 – £7. When travelling in Leeds please ensure you take licensed taxis:
Amber Cars 0113 202 2117
Arrow Private Hire 0113 258 5888.
If arriving to the University by taxi (on a day the workshop is taking place), get the taxi driver to drop you off near the Business School on Moorland Road 

If you need to book a taxi for your departure date from Conference, please ask at the registration desk (Clarendon Building GR.01).

Leeds station connects us with all major UK cities and has a fast and efficient London service.
The principal station that runs trains to Leeds is London Kings Cross. For train information and timetables visit National Rail Enquiries. Visitors should expect to pay under £40.00 for a return ticket between Manchester Airport and Leeds and around £270.00 for a return ticket from Heathrow Airport to Leeds. All travelling times vary depending on the time and day.

Walking Route to the University of Leeds from Leeds train station

If you have not visited the Leeds University campus before, and are walking up to the University, the best route from Leeds City Station is a 25-minute walk up Park Row, crossing “The Headrow” onto Cookridge Street, eventually reaching Woodhouse Lane, where you turn left towards the main “Parkinson Building”, land-mark for the University with the recognisable clock tower and steps up to pillared entrance.

The workshop itself is at Leeds University Business School, on the opposite side of the campus to the Parkinson Building, but it is only a 7-minute walk from the Parkinson steps, and this is the main entrance on to campus.

If you prefer to get a taxi, the Parkinson Steps are also the general “drop-off point” for the University, although you could choose to get a taxi direct to to the Business School at the corner of the junction between Clarendon Road and Moorland Road.
