Traffic Information back to top

Leeds is reckoned to be one of the country's most car-dependent cities, so roads can be very busy during peak hours. The city is well served by an excellent road network, designed to keep traffic on the move. Access to and from the city centre is via the M621, which links with both the M1 for onward travel north or south, and the M62 for access east or west across the Pennines. The Leeds inner ring road functions as an urban motorway, keeping traffic away from the city centre. Parking in the city itself is plentiful, with substantial discounts offered for pre-bookings which can be made online or by phone. If you prefer not to drive into the city, there are several affordable Park and Ride options.

Leeds' Industrial history Sits Alongside its Mornern Wonders

Located on the scenic River Aire in West Yorkshire, Leeds is an historic city dating back to medieval times. It owes its wealth as a city to the Industrial Revolution, during which it was renowned both for its cotton mills and its iron foundries. In addition to manufacturing industries, Leeds is also now an important centre for international banking and finance. Today, it is a modern, vibrant city which boasts several large indoor shopping centres, making it the principal shopping centre for the region. Sport also plays an important part in the life of the city. Elland Road is home to Leeds United football club, while the Headingley Stadium is home to the Yorkshire cricket team and Leeds Rugby Club. Four universities ensure its popularity as a student city and the city's night life enjoys an excellent reputation. The Millennium Square, offering plenty of bars and restaurants, together with a large outdoor screen, is particularly attractive for weekend visitors.
