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, 5, 5A, 6, 19, 29, 30, 30X, 31, 31X and 40. 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), 1 hour from Hull and 30 minutes from Junction 45 of the A1(M). As the theatre does not have its own parking facilities, please use one of the local council pay and display car parks:

Bootham Row YO30 7BP
5 min walk

Marygate YO30 7DT
10 minute walk

Union Terrace YO31 7ES
12 min walk

Foss Bank YO31 7PL
16 min walk

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 Principal York Hotel, straight over the cross roads. Follow the road under the city walls, then turn left and over Lendal Bridge. You will see York 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 are immediately adjacent.
