Driving directions for West Park. The Centre is approximately 4 miles from the centre of Leeds, located not far from the point where the road from Leeds to Otley (the A660) crosses the Leeds ring road (the A6120).

Travelling from the South (central Leeds) either head directly for the Leeds ring road, or go to the centre of town and then follow the so-called "Loop", which will guide you round the city centre. From the A58(M) keep your eyes open for the A660 signposted to Skipton or signs to the University, Headingley or Otley.

A660 to Skipton

This will take you out of Leeds going north on Woodhouse Lane which turns into Otley Road passing Leeds University on your left and later the Skyrack pub also on your left (where you would turn left along St Michaels Road for Headingley Parish Hall - home of our Tuesday night dances).

Skyrack Public House on your left

You will come to a small roundabout at West Park where the A660 forks off to the right.

Turn left along Spen Road when you see this signpost.

After about 0.2 mile fork left along West Park Drive just after a pillar box.

A further 0.25 mile and you will come to a crossroads; turn left into Spen Lane. Follow Spen Lane and the Centre is about 0.1 mile on the left just after Arncliffe Road.

Travelling from all other directions head for the A6120 Leeds ring road and find the traffic lights at Spen Lane about 0.3 mile in the Bradford direction from the roundabout at the junction of the A660 and the A6120 at West Park.

Turn right into Spen Lane

Follow Spen Lane and the Centre is about 0.35 mile on the left just after Arncliffe Road.

The visitor entrance to the centre is not very well signed (look out for two stone gateposts). The biggest car park is the first turning on the left (coming from the ring road, A6120) - walk through a rather scruffy passageway to the main entrance and a second smaller car park which is accessed by taking the next left after the visitor entrance (it is just before a small roundabout by a parade of shops).
