Directions to Weetwood HallOur Day Limmud is being held in the modern and purpose-built conference facilities of Weetwood Hall, located on the corner of the west-bound carriageway of the Outer Ring Road in North Leeds, just before the Lawnswood roundabout (junction of the A6120 Ring Road and A660 Otley Road signposted Skipton) and the A660 Otley Road; both entrances are clearly marked.
From the M1 avoiding Leeds City Centre
Take M1 (signposted The North (A1) Leeds (East)) at Junction 43, not the M621 (signposted Leeds Centre).
Leave the M1 at Exit 46 (signposted A6120 Leeds East and the airport sign) and at the roundabout at the top of the slip road turn left onto the A6120. You will stay on the A6120, which is the Leeds Ring Road, until you arrive at your destination Weetwood Hall.
After the next roundabout, get in the right hand lane which will be signposted Ring Road and airport – the left lane will turn onto the A63 to Leeds City Centre.
You will now cross various radial roads from Leeds City Centre over the next few miles on your journey straight along the A6120 Ring Road; the York Road (A64), the Wetherby Road (A58), the Harrogate Road (A61). There are a few traffic lights too, but just continue straight ahead. You will also continue seeing the airport sign all the way.
Weetwood Hall is situated on the left near side of the second roundabout after the Harrogate Road A61 roundabout, along the A6120 Ring Road. Approaching this roundabout, there are first a couple of small green signs for the University of Leeds playing fields, then a large roundabout sign showing the junction with the A660 Skipton and airport to the right, then just beyond this sign, a turn left and sign for Weetwood Hall. Note that the sat-nav post code will take you to the Otley Road entrance in which case you turn left at the roundabout, then left again into the other entrance just beyond a bus stop.
From the west on the M62
Take Exit 27 (signposted Leeds Centre) onto the M621.
Take Exit 2 (signposted A61 Harrogate) and at the roundabout turn left.
At the large roundabout (called Armley Gyratory) take the third exit onto the Inner Ring Road (A58M) (note Yorkshire Post building with digital time and temperature display on right hand side after ½ mile).
Leave the Inner Ring Road at the exit sign-posted A61 Harrogate. At the top of the hill note the Halifax building with digital time and temperature display. Follow signs for A61 Harrogate.
Follow the A61 (Scott Hall Road) for around 5 miles, passing straight across four roundabouts.
At the fifth roundabout junction with the A6120 Ring Road (note BP service station on left-hand side) turn left onto the Ring Road.
Now follow directions from M1 from Harrogate Road intersection above.
From the A1, north or south (also M62 east: turn north onto the A1)
Take the junction signposted A64 Leeds.
Follow the A64 towards Leeds for a few miles until you reach the A6120 Ring Road roundabout. Turn right onto the Ring Road. Now follow directions from M1 from York Road (A64) intersection above
From Leeds City Station, walk to either Infirmary Street (bus no 1 only) or Albion Street (far side of Headrow) to take either of buses 1 or 96 through Headingley, towards Holt Park getting off at the Lawnswood school stop, Otley Road (about 25 minutes on the bus). Weetwood Hall is on the opposite side of the road on the corner and there are entrances from both the A660 Otley Rd and the A6120 Ring Road. These buses each run half hourly on a Sunday.
