By foot
From Leeds Train Station (15 mins): exit the main entrance and turn right, follow the road round to Boar Lane and turn right. Keep going along Boar Lane & Duncan Street past Subway, 1871, Russel Eaton, McDonalds, cross over Lower Briggate and when you pass Nandos you will see Leeds Corn Exchange, a domed round building - head down the road to the left of that and at the lights turn immediately right and look down Kirkgate where you'll see a railway bridge - we're immediately after that, on the corner of Kirkgate and Wharf Street, a 3-floor red building.
Alternatively, there is a Leeds City Bus (runs every few minutes during the daytime) which circles through the heart of Leeds City Centre, you can catch it outside the train station and get off at the Bus Station, which is considerably closer to us. It costs 50p (unless you have a Metro pass).

From Leeds Bus Station (5 mins): exit the bus station next to Stand 1, opposite you will see Mecca Bingo, a takeaway and Britneys Nails, turn right and walk up to the lights where you can cross the road and go down the immediate right of the Cooperative store, Cross York Street. We are located at the end of that short street, a red 3-floor building.

If you're using a sat nav then use postcode LS2 7EQ, this will get you onto Wharf Street which we are on the corner of.

There is Pay & Display parking on the street immediately outside the Academy, however we recommend the NCP Markets multi-storey car park (postcode LS2 7EA) which currently costs a fixed fee of £7.20 for the day (Mon-Fri) for cars arriving by 9.30am. We're also about 10 mins walk from the Brewery Car Park (postcode LS10 1JQ) which is £7 for the day if arriving by 10am.  Alternatively, you can park at Elland Road (LS11 8TU) and use Metro's Park & Ride scheme for £3 a day.

Hotels & Accommodation
We are very close to the Ibis Budget hotel (previously Etap), where rooms cost as little as £25 a night. There's also 42 The Calls (4-star), Jurys Inn, Roomzzz and Travelodge to name a few.
