Getting to Huddersfield

Huddersfield is in West Yorkshire, conveniently located between Leeds and Manchester. The University of Huddersfield is at a 10-min walking distance from the train station.

• Manchester Airport to Huddersfield: there is a fast train service every half an hour, which takes around 50 minutes.

(The Leeds/Bradford Airport to Huddersfield route: there is no train or direct bus service from the airport to Huddersfield, so this route is not recommended).
