Hertz in Leeds Bradford Airport

Found in West Yorkshire, the city of Leeds offers a lot to visitors. From architectural sights such as the town hall through to brilliant museums and art gallery, Leeds is a city where there is something for everyone. Hire a car from Leeds Bradford International Airport and take the journey into Leeds city centre where you will find the impressive Trinity Shopping Centre and the traditional retail street, Briggate. Kirkgate Market can also be found in the city centre and it is here where Marks and Spencer began with their first market stall.

Rent a car from Leeds Bradford International Airport and take the journey to the famous Royal Armouries museum located at Clarence Dock, just outside the city centre. It houses a large collection of arms and armour and has six themed galleries. Take a trip to Roundhay Park and enjoy the 700 acres of award winning parkland. Tropical world is also situated next to Roundhay Park and is home to a variety of animals and a large collection of tropical plants. Leeds City Museum is also worth visiting and offers a chance to see into the city's past.

 

Driving in and around Leeds Bradford Airport

Whether it’s the area’s main cities, quaint Yorkshire villages or historic towns you’re looking to visit, Leeds Bradford Airport is perfectly placed so you can do all that and more.

Leeds is around 10 miles to the south-east of the airport, while Bradford is around eight miles to the south-west. Driving around either city presents no real problems, though the one-way system, known as the ‘Loop Road’, in the center of Leeds can take some getting used to. If you’re going to be driving through the city center, it helps to plan your route beforehand.   

If you want to visit both cities on your trip, you’ll find they’re linked by the M621. The M621 motorway (freeway) runs along the southern edge of Leeds and takes you to the M1, which runs south towards Sheffield and north-east to meet the A1(M).

From Leeds Bradford Airport the city of York is a 30-mile drive via the A658 and A59, and Harrogate is 13 miles away on the A658 and A61. The southern section of the Yorkshire Dales is easily reached from the airport, with the gateway town of Skipton just 20 miles to the west. The more northerly of the Dales towns, such as Hawes and Leyburn are an hour-and-a-half drive from the airport but well worth the effort. 

Unlike in many other European countries, the UK drives on the left-hand side of the road. Speed limits are 30mph in built-up areas, 60mph on single and two-lane primary roads (prefixed with ‘A’ or ‘B’) outside built-up areas, and 70 mph on two-lane divided highways and three-lane freeways.

Signs for primary A-roads and B-roads roads are green with white text, while freeway signs are blue. Smaller secondary roads (mainly B-roads) have white signs with black lettering.

Be sure to stay within the speed limits as there are plenty of speed cameras, especially on faster roads and near towns and villages, and note that it’s illegal in the UK to turn right on a red light.

A quick guide to Leeds Bradford Airport

If you’re collecting your rental car from Leeds Bradford Airport, you’re ideally placed to discover all that Yorkshire has to offer. Picture-perfect villages and exciting cities rub shoulders with some of England’s greatest scenery and finest historical treasures. 

Shop ‘til you drop

Leeds is a major center for business and finance, but England’s third largest city also knows how to have fun. Not only is it a lively hub of art, culture, music, sport, entertainment and nightlife, it also boasts some of the best shopping in the UK.

The variety of stores on offer is mind-blowing, from huge malls full of high-end designer names to quirky boutiques housed in grand Victorian arcades.

Among the many highlights is the stunning Victoria Quarter, home to dozens of classy designer brands, as well as the iconic Harvey Nichols, beloved of fashionistas the world over.

Nearby is the historic Kirkgate Market, a bustling Victorian-era covered market that packs in over 400 stalls and was the birthplace of iconic British retailer Marks & Spencer.

Modern art and ancient weapons

If you prefer something more cerebral, head to the city’s Art Gallery, which contains one of the best collections of 20th-century art outside the capital. Next door is the hugely rewarding Henry Moore Institute which houses an impressive collection of sculptures by the locally-born artist and others from around the world.

A short drive from the heart of the city center is the impressive Royal Armouries Museum, home to a massive collection of arms and armor from medieval times to the present day. Spread across five floors, be prepared to see everything from old-fashioned firearms to live action jousting tournaments.

In the neighboring city of Bradford is the National Science and Media Museum, which presents fascinating exhibitions on the history of film, photography, and television. On the outskirts of Bradford you’ll find the beautifully preserved Victorian village of Saltaire, home to the famous Salts Mill – a must for lovers of art and history.

See one of the finest churches in England

Only 30 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport is York, one of the most visited cities in the UK. Originally a Roman fort, and later the Viking town of Jorvik (hence the name), the city is best known for its magnificent cathedral, known as York Minster, which towers over the narrow cobbled streets of the city center.

Built between the 12th and 15th centuries, York Minster is one of the largest and finest Gothic churches in northern Europe.

Don’t leave town without wandering through the maze of narrow, winding streets known as The Shambles, famed for their distinctive overhanging, timber-framed buildings which house an array of quirky little shops.

Discover the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales

The picturesque Yorkshire Dales is one of England’s greatest scenic treasures. This vast area of craggy, limestone peaks and soft green valleys is home to countless pretty villages.

Every one of the dales is different and touring round in your rental car will allow you to discover your own favorite. The charming market town of Skipton is a gateway to the southern dales of Wharfedale and Littondale, while the towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Reeth are best for exploring the more rugged hiking country of Wensleydale and Swaledale.

The gentler delights of Nidderdale, in the Eastern Dales, are on the doorstep of the elegant spa resort of Harrogate, where you can savor that most English of treats, afternoon tea, at the legendary Betty’s Tea Rooms.

If you want to see the former home of legendary literary sisters the Brontës, you’ll find it in the charming village of Haworth, a 10-mile drive outside of Bradford. The Brontë Parsonage Museum houses some of the sisters’ first works along with their letters and other artifacts.
