With the Peak District to the south and the Yorkshire Dales to the north, Leeds is a city with some truly stunning scenery on its doorstep, offering something a little different from the usual urban surroundings for business events. Despite this, when you book a venue in Leeds city centre, you will still have the same high standard of executive facilities as you might expect in any major business district.
For arrival via domestic or international flight, the city is served by Leeds Bradford Airport, located just six miles from the city centre, handling about 3.5 million passenger movements every year. Its north-westerly location makes venues like Weetwood Hall and Headingley Experience good options for events with large numbers of delegates arriving by air.
The main Leeds railway station is centrally located for venues in the city, with 17 platforms in all and one of the easiest platform layouts to navigate for those using its main terminal for the first time; with about 30 million passengers using Leeds each year, it ranks among the top three busiest stations outside of London.
Conference venues in Leeds city centre include St George’s Conference Centre on Great George Street and MEETinLEEDS at the University of Leeds’ Cromer Terrace building, simply known as University House, along with opportunities to book meeting spaces and seminar rooms at executive hotel chains across the region too.
