Getting to York Theatre Royal

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, giving excellent connections to the rest of the UK. A number of local bus services stop directly outside the theatre including numbers 1, 2, 5, 5A, 6, 19, 29, 30, 31, 31X, 40, 56, 58, 812 and 884. For information on bus routes and times, please visit the First and Transdev websites.

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 York's Park & Ride scheme for a day visit.

Walking Directions

Turn left from the main entrance of the station and continue past the Royal York Hotel, straight over the cross roads. Follow the road under the city walls, then turn left and over Lendal Bridge. You will see the Minster in front of you as you pass the York Museum Gardens on the left. At the crossroads turn left and York Theatre Royal is in front of you on the right hand side of the road. The De Grey Rooms is immediately adjacent.
