Leeds Bradford Airport Parking

Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) is a launchpad for carriers like Aer Lingus, Aurigny, Balkan Holidays, Jet2.com, KLM, Ryanair and easyJet – serving destinations like Dublin, Amsterdam, Tenerife, Malaga, Faro, Barcelona, Prague and many more.

This bustling Yorkshire airport serves two brilliant cities, and each has their distinct charms. Leeds boasts a legendary football team and a buzzing cultural scene which includes gorgeous galleries and exhibition spaces, lush parks and green spaces, busy bars and pubs, all on the edge of the delightful Dales. And this is also one of Britain’s best cities for shopping – from designer hotspots like Harvey Nichols to inspirational independent shops in Leeds Corn Exchange. There’s plenty for families to do too. Take Harewood House, for instance, with its swings, slides, climbing towers and frames, or the outstanding kids play areas in parks like Pudsey, Golden Acre and Roundhay. And if you really want them to burn off that excess energy (so you get some peace and quiet at last), Go Ape at Temple Newsam is a thrilling treetop adventure zone for children of all ages, with zip lines, rope bridges, Tarzan swings and more. Alternatively, animal attractions in Leeds include Tropical World, with its iguanas, lizards, snakes and meerkats, and Lotherton Wildlife World, which has amazing Humboldt penguins.

Bradford’s no slouch for distractions either. The fascinating Bradford Industrial Museum showcases the city’s proud wool and textiles heritage and the National Science and Media Museum is a treasure trove of pop culture. The scenery in Lister Park is also lovely and literature lovers always appreciate the Bronte Parsonage Museum. And St George’s Hall is one of Britain’s most iconic venues. The oldest concert hall in the nation, it has showcased everyone from Charles Darwin to David Bowie. But it’s not the only stunning traditional venue in the city – the delightful domes of the Bradford Alhambra have been beacons for brilliant theatre and dining since way back in 1913 and the venue continues to host a diverse mix of touring shows, including drama, dance and musicals. And kids don’t feel left out in Bradford either. When the sun’s out (which is more often than you might think), there’s the totem and play trail around Peel Park and a cracking playground and boating lake at Lister Park, while Ilkley Lido is a legendary place to enjoy a swim in the great outdoors – get the hot chocolate ready for afterwards! Another activity kids and adults alike love is taking a trip on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. The experience of travelling in a steam train through Bronte country is something truly special that no passenger forgets in a hurry. Finally, don’t leave town without visiting the Ilkley Toy Museum – it’s one of the foremost private toy collections in the UK and you’ll see dolls, puzzles, teddy bears and various childhood artefacts dating from 350BC (really!) to the present day.

Compare parking at Leeds Bradford Airport

Leeds Bradford has nearly as many parking spaces as Elland Road has blades of grass, so book ahead of time and you won’t struggle. There’s something for everyone too – from parents with young kids to seasoned business travellers.

With (pre-pandemic) passenger numbers of 3.92 million, LBA is a busy place and its dedication to customer service, great design and first-class connectivity means it’s well-placed to make a strong comeback in the ‘new normal’.

First opened in 1931 as Leeds and Bradford Municipal Aerodrome, LBA was launching scheduled flights from a 35-acre site by 1935. Commandeered for the war effort in 1939, its aerodrome was disguised so it could deliver Allied planes undetected. Civilian flights resumed on 1947, with routes to longstanding destinations like Dusseldorf and Dublin added in the next two decades. In the 1980s, the runway was extended to allow the A658 to dip underneath, and transatlantic flights commenced. By the 1990s, LBA was operating 24/7 and it looks like it’ll be here to stay for future generations too.
