Information about parking in and around Leeds
Driving to and parking in Leeds:
Leeds sits at the intersection of the M1, M62. M621 and A1M motorways, and the city centre is easily reached by car. Compared to other towns and cities Leeds is also relatively well served by public and private parking spaces within the centre.
There are around 2,400 on-street parking spaces within the city centre, although charges can vary between £1 to £2.60 an hour. There is also a flat rate fee of £2 after 6pm which applies to all council controlled on-street parking spaces. Sunday parking on these on-street bays is considerably cheaper at £1 for under 4 hours or £4 for over 4 hours.
In terms of multi storeys, the large 1,200 space car park at the First Direct Arena is a good choice for visitors to the university, the Merrion shopping centre, as well as the arena itself. At the southern end of the city centre there is also The Markets multi storey which has 646 spaces and is well positioned for both the train and bus stations.
Leeds City Council have produced a map of all city centre car parks here.
