    Driving straight into or out of Leeds is easy thanks to a motorway built in the 60's. Accessing the city centre from there is also quite straightforward. Please be careful as there is a city centre loop and should you miss your exit, you may end up driving the full loop again. Leeds is similar to most other cities when it comes to driving - if you avoid rush hour, you should be fine. The major motorways M1 and M62 are linked to Leeds, which is also close to the A1. Inform yourself on driving in the UK in our UK driving information page .


    Once in Leeds, you may park your car hire and start exploring the city core on foot. Easily walkable, the city centre will enchant you with its Victorian style and beautifully preserved buildings. To explore the industrial heritage of Leeds and its beautiful countryside, you will need your car hire again. Leeds has a lot of car parks all around the city. Some large car parks are located near big shopping centres in Leeds downtown but finding a free spot can still be challenging during regular shopping hours. We recommend parking your car a bit further from the centre and taking a short bus ride downtown instead.

    Geographic Information

    The weather in Leeds is highly influenced by the location of the city - the climate is oceanic thanks to the closeness of the Atlantic Ocean. The range of mountains and hills known as The Pennines or, popularly called the backbone of England, separates North West England from Yorkshire and contributes to the mild climate in Leeds. Moderate rainfall is common throughout the year, even in the summer, which is normally mild. Winters and autumns can be harsh and cloudy with temperatures going below -10°C.

    Leeds Airport

    Leeds Airport is situated only seven miles north-west from Leeds city centre and can be easily reached by car in only a few minutes.
