With the weather being as it has recently it is very likely that parking for the festival will be very restricted. Where possible PLEASE try to use public transport, it’ll help to make your day run smoothly.

By bus

From Bramley: Buses 38, 49 and 91, alight at Kirkstall Leisure Centre and walk along to the Abbey (5 mins).

From Hawksworth: bus 50 travels along Morris Lane. Alight opposite Abbey Walk and walk down the hill past the Abbey House Museum (2 mins).
