Getting Here

York Theatre Royal is situated in the heart of York, in the shadow of York Minster. York Railway Station is just 10 minutes walk away with excellent connections to the rest of the UK. A number of local bus services stop directly outside the theatre including numbers 1, 5, 6, 19B, 29, 30, 30X, 31, 31X, 40, 58 and M15. For information on bus routes and times, please visit the First website.

The theatre is approximately 40 minutes drive from Harrogate, 45 minutes from Leeds (city centre), 1hr from Hull and 30 minutes from junction 45 of the A1(M). There are a number of car parks close to the theatre, but space can be limited so please allow enough time to park and walk in. The city centre car parks can be expensive, so you may want to use Yorks Park&Ride scheme for a day visit.

Please be aware that during the week commencing the 17th November, Mon – Thurs (inclusive) there will be full closure of St Leonards Place and the junction of Bootham and Gillygate, 7:00pm – 5:00am, due to road works.

Diversion routes will be in place. Local car parks will be open, but there will be no through route between Bootham, Gillygate and St Leonards Place for vehicles. Pedestrian access to the theatre will be maintained at all times with short footway diversions in place. If you are coming to see a show then please leave extra time to get to the theatre. Apologies if this causes any inconvenience.
