Car

Just west of the city heart, near the Town Hall, is where Leeds’s testing site is located. If you are driving, the A58, which goes around the western edge of Leeds, makes it easy to get to this part of the city. In the Oxford House building on Oxford Row, the event is located.

Please remember that there are several parking lots close by. We’ve selected a few parking lots, but feel free to check out the dedicated Parkopedia page for more choices.

Light Car Park

This big parking lot with several floors is about 500 metres from the test centre. The place is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The fees you have to pay, though, depend on when you come. Here is a list of parking fees:

  • £2.60 an hour from midnight to 7 a.m.
  • 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.: £3.30 an hour
  • From 10 am to 7 pm, it costs £3.50 an hour.
  • 7 p.m. to midnight: £3.30 an hour

Keep in mind that if you need to park for a long time, it might be cheaper to buy a 24-hour ticket. They cost £28.80.

This parking lot takes cash, and cards (including smart cards), and the RingGo parking line is open for people who want to pay by phone. Call 02030460010 or text 81025 and include the parking lot’s Location ID (40203) to use this feature of the app.

Additionally, there are places for people with disabilities, and this parking lot has charging stations for electric vehicles. You can get to the venue in about five minutes by walking west on Great George Street and then turning left onto Oxford Row.

The Rose Bowl is at Leeds Beckett University.

This spot is open every day from 6 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. It works the same way as The Light Car Park in that the way you pay depends on the day (or week in this case).

These are the parking fees:

Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.: It costs £1.90 an hour, £3.40 for two hours, and £4.90 for three hours. After that, prices slowly go up until they cover six hours. Since the most you can pay is £16, if you need parking all day, you’ll never go over that amount.

On the weekends and after 3 p.m. during the week, prices are a little lower. If you park for more than three hours during these times, the prices drop a lot compared to what was said above.

This site lets you pay with cash or a card, even one that doesn’t need to be swiped.

The venue is a 500-meter walk to the southwest of this parking lot. After going past the Civic Hall and Millennium Square, turn left onto Portland Street, which makes it easier to get to Oxford Row.

Bus

There are many bus lines that go very close to the test spot because it is in the middle of everything. If you’re taking a local bus, please try for one of the stops below. They are all less than ten minutes’ walk from Oxford House.

The following places have “Civic” bus stops:

Several stops with this name can be found in and around The Headrow and Westgate. There isn’t much space between these and the test centre.

South Parade:

The distance between this stop and Oxford House is about 500m. Go up South Parade and turn left onto Headrow. Then, go west towards Westgate. When you get to Westgate, go to the first intersection and turn right. This will lead you to Oxford Row.

City Square:

Leeds Train Station is only a short walk (900m) from City Square, which is where the event is taking place. As a result, please follow the instructions below to get to the test centre.

Visit Oxford Row’s “Moovit” dashboard page to find other stops that are close enough to walk to the event and to find out how to get to them by local Leeds bus services.

Train

The Leeds Train Station is not far from Oxford House—less than 1 km away. To get to King Street on foot, walk north past City Square and turn right onto Quebec Street. As the road meets East Parade, progress goes north. As you reach Headrow, keep going up this road. Then turn west onto Westgate. Once more, when you get to Westgate, take the first right to get to the test centre.

There is a bus service that will take you from the bus stop on New Station Street, which is right outside the front door of the station, to the Civic bus stop on The Headrow. This is the Electric number 5 service in Leeds City Centre.

Visit the National Rail website, which can be found here, to find out about departure and arrival times as well as station services.
