Leeds enjoys excellent links with the rest of the UK. Located at the intersection of the motorway network, the city has direct road links with London and Edinburgh via the M1 and A1, while the M62 connects Leeds to the west and east coast ports of Liverpool and Hull.

Planned improvements to the transport infrastructure include the East Leeds link road, which will form an express way leading from the M1 through the Aire Valley Leeds - a major regeneration area - and into the city centre.

London is two hours away by rail, with services running to and from Kings Cross every half hour. In addition to regular daily flights to Gatwick and Heathrow, the major European business and holiday destinations are served by direct flights from Leeds Bradford International Airport.
