Directions to Oakwood House

Oakwood House is in Oakwood, North-East Leeds, 1000m from Roundhay park, 2 miles north of the city centre. The building is next door to Lloyds-TSB Bank at the bottom of the row of shops. We will be on the first floor, above The Co-Operative supermarket. The entrance is at the side of the building next door to Lloyds-TSB Bank.

By car

From Leeds City Centre

Go north out of the city centre along North Lane. Take the right fork marked ‘Roundhay and Wetherby’ into Roundhay Road. After one and a half miles, at the end of the long rows of shops, stay in the left lane, continuing on Roundhay Road. (Do not take the right fork – A58 – to Wetherby.) After half a mile you will reach Oakwood (drive past Tesco on your left). The Co-Operative supermarket is on your left.

From the ring road north of Leeds, the A6120

Go to the junction of the A6120 and the A58. Turn onto the A58 towards Leeds. After half a mile turn right at the lights (marked ‘Roundhay’). After a mile you will get to the crossroads at Oakwood Clock. Go straight on over the traffic lights. The Co-Operative supermarket is on your right, after 200 metres.

Parking

You may park for up to four hours on Roundhay Road in the car park on the right hand side of the road, going out of Leeds (northbound). It’s almost opposite the Co-Operative.

You may park behind The Co-Operative supermarket for up to two hours. In practice, this two hour limit is not enforced by the supermarket: the security guard at the supermarket even advised me to ignore it.

There is also a small car park, free of charge, by Oakwood clock itself, and there is a small amount of unrestricted street parking nearby.

Tesco’s free car park is 300m down the road on the right as you do into Leeds centre: you may park there for up to two hours. Homebase car park is next to it, and has no restrictions.
