Travel

Leeds is well-served by airports:

and direct train services, e.g.,

Advance rail travel can be booked through any of the main UK rail company websites. Start on the National Rail website to find times, routes and ticket prices.

Conference Leeds have set up an extra 20% discount for rail travel to and from Leeds on the East Coast main line (stations from London) for the period relevant to the conference (10th - 18th April 2010). To book, follow this link: East Coast TQC travel offer

Tickets can also be purchased at ticket counters immediately prior to travel (without discounts). For those unfamiliar with UK rail services, buying a ticket on the train is possible, but you will usually pay a lot more than the return ticket prices available at the ticket counter. Some stations (including Leeds) have ticket barriers which make boarding a train without a ticket difficult anyway.
