York is on the main East Coast Line from London King's Cross to Edinburgh. Fast trains leave from both north and south at frequent intervals. There is also a direct service across the Pennines between York, Leeds and Manchester Airport. The University is two miles from the railway station and you will need to get a bus or taxi onto campus. The Number 44 or 66 bus travels from the railway station to Heslington Hall via University Road approx every 10 minutes. The scheduled journey time is 20 minutes. A journey by taxi from the railway station to the University will take approximately 15
minutes. There is a taxi rank just outside the Station.
The nearest airport is Leeds Bradford Airport. You can take a bus or taxi from the airport to Leeds train station then a train to York.
The easiest route to the University is to take the outer ring road (A64 on the south and east sides of the city, A1237 around the north and west) to the junction with the Hull/Bridlington roads (A1079/A166). Turn off at the exit marked University and follow the signs past Grimston Bar and down Field Lane to University Road. This route avoids the City centre and known traffic blackspots.
