    Steam train to York or Scarborough

    by Britannia2 Updated May 8, 2015

    The Scarborough Spa Express will not be running from Leeds in the summer of 2015 (probably due to station capacity been reached at Leeds) but it may run in the autumn.
    Vintage steam engines hauling classic style carriages will then take you to York and/or Scarborough. There is a refreshment service on board every train.
    The journey is expensive in comparison to the standard train but this is a real experience and the journey does seem more relaxed at a slightly slower speed in the newer trains.
    Quite expensive but children can sometimes travel free. The website has details.

    Linking the city with Leeds City Bus

    by spidermiss Updated Apr 21, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Leeds CityBus links the city's railway and bus stations, universities and colleges, hospitals, shopping and business districts. It's a handy way to get about in the city especially if you need to get from one end to the other end of the city.

    It used to be free! It's ludicrous that we now have to pay 50p per journey compared to similar services which are without charge in different UK cities! However if you have a travel card (for example, a metrocard) or concessionary pass it's still free of charge.

    The largest station in Yorkshire which is already at full capacity and will be extended within the next few years. You can take a train to virtually everywhere on the rail network from here and within West Yorkshire you can just turn up and find a train to your destination. There is generally a train every 30 minutes to London and every 15 minutes to Manchester.
    There are a number of shops on the station - Boots, Sainsburys Local, Cards Galore, W H Smith and Body Shop. Many eating places including McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Weatherspoons and Starbucks amongst others.
    Ticket gates operate at this station and you must have a ticket to get on or off the platforms.
    A good taxi rank service exists and also a free city centre local bus plus standard city and area buses stop outside.

    Bus & Coach station (stop 3)
    The Markets
    Duncan Street
    City Rail Station
    King Street
    Headrow/Town Hall
    Westgate Courts
    Park Lane College

    Dental Hospital
    Leeds University
    Leeds General InfirmaryLeeds Metropolitan University
    MArrion Centre
    St.John's Centre
    Headrow
    Eastgate

    Update April 2011: member Nemorino (thanks Don) told me that Metro is now charging 50p for this service (the council pulled out of half-funding the service); which is still very reasonable....for the time being at least!

    They still offer free bus services in Bradford, Dewsbury, Huddersfield & Wakefield.

  • Midland Mainline

    by andyb56 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This is a great way to travel from London and the Midlands. Midland Mainline offer a slower service from the south and more often than not a cheaper service. The journey though is definately more interesting than the East Coast mainline. The service though maybe subject to disruption at the moment though as London St Pancras is getting ready for the Eurostar!!!!

    by andyb56 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Virgin Trains operate an hourly service from the South West (Bristol, Birmingham) and through to Scotand (Edinburgh, Inverness). Trains are often crowded so book early and if you like your comfort then make sure you book an upgrade to First Class as the seats are definately more comfortable!

    by Gregtravel Written Aug 20, 2010

    Be careful if you are visiting Leeds and using public transport as the busses finish between 23.00 and 23.30 if you miss the last one then it is very expensive in hackney taxis (black and white) as these are the only ones you can flagg down in the centre of leeds
