Travel Information

York is well served with rail, air and road transport links. The main East Coast rail line provides an almost hourly service to London Kings Cross (fastest journey time 1hr 45m) and the northern route goes through Newcastle to Edinburgh. A day trip to York by rail from either London or Edinburgh is easy.

Leeds Bradford International Airport is less than an hour away by car / taxi and Manchester's International Airport can be reached by the M62 motorway, and a rapid direct train service from York rail station.

Although not directly on the motorway network, York is now only 20 minutes drive from the A1-M1 link road, which gives fast road access South to London (M1), West to Manchester and Liverpool (M62) and North to Teeside / Tyneside and Scotland (A1, partially motorway). The East coast port of Kingston upon Hull is about an hour away by a good A-class road.
