Representatives are encouraged to travel by public transport and to book their tickets as early as possible, in order to keep the Conference's travel costs to a minimum. The Royal Armouries is approximately 20 minutes walk from Leeds railway station (approximately 1.3 kilometres/0.8 miles), please see map, or 5 minutes by taxi.

Leeds dock water taxis run regularly from Granary Wharf (just by the South entrance of Leeds train station) to Leeds Dock (by Armouries). Journeys take approximately 10 minutes and cost £2 per person, children 5 years and under travel free. To find out more visit taxitrak.co.uk 

For those arriving by air, Leeds Bradford International Airport airport is 30 minutes from the venue by taxi.
