Please use this address when travelling to the conference, as the University of Leeds campus is very large. The campus map is available to view here.
 
Air
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.

Walking
The University campus is just a 20 minute walk from Leeds city station, with the walk to the western campus, where the liberty building is situated another 20 minutes. Exit the station into City square; with the Queens Hotel behind you, walk straight up Park Row. Continue up Park Row until the first major junction. Cross straight over The Headrow and continue up Cookridge Street. At the next set of lights continue straight ahead, passing Millennium Square on your left and Leeds City Museum on your right. Turn left on to Woodhouse Lane, a busy main road. You will pass Leeds Beckett University on your left and our University campus begins in another 100 metres. Turn left past the security barriers and through the main University arches. Continue along the University road, past the Great Hall and Fine Art building. You will reach a barrier just short of Clarendon Road. Cross the road, keeping the Business School of your left, and contiune down Moorland Road. The glass fronted liberty building will be on your left.
