Getting around Leeds

Visiting Leeds on a city break? You’ll be pleased to discover just how easy it is to get around. Although fabulously well-connected by public transport, the centre itself is compact - and mostly pedestrianised. So strike out on foot if you want to explore the main shopping streets, wonderful architecture and cultural hot spots. You might miss some hidden gems if you fly past on the bus!

Leeds bus


During the day, catch the LeedsCityBus which loops around the outer city centre. It runs every six to seven minutes and only costs 50p. It’s best to get on either at the bus or rail station as it does fill up quite quickly.

Leeds trains

Leeds Station, one of the busiest in the UK, is the main rail connection to the city, but there’s a suburban train service which can get you from Leeds station to tourist attractions like Headingley Stadium and Kirkstall.
