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
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.
