It’s the age old argument… which side of the pennines is the best? There’s only one way to find out and we’ve got a ground FULL of you desperate to support the fight. The war of the roses begins right here at Headingley tomorrow night and if you’ve got a ticket to the action, here’s some information to add to your enjoyment of the night.
GETTING TO HEADINGLEY
Park and Ride: Anyone wishing to drive to Headingley is advised to park at Car Park K located on Stanmore Terrace. Postcode: LS4 2SW. Price of car parking is £5 and is subject to availability. The car park is a five-minute walk from the stadium.

From Bradford, Skipton and the North, take either of two routes, the motorways as above or via the A6110/A6120/A63 which will all lead to the Leeds Outer Ring Road. From there join the A660 Otley Road and this will take you south towards Headingley Stadium. Taking either route will ensure you avoid the busy city centre.

Both are similar walking distances and will take approximately 10 minutes. The train fare is approximately £2.00 return from Leeds City Station. Click here for updated train travel information.
A taxi will drop you outside the ground, please request either Kirkstall Lane (for Gates G/H/F) or St Michaels Lane for all other entrances. Prices will vary but range from approximately £7 – £20 and will take approximately 15 minutes from Leeds city centre.
