Bus number 1 (calls at the Infirmary Street stop, by the railway station) and number 6 both stop outside the Parkinson building. Please bear in mind buses will be slower than advertised during rush hour.

Free parking should be available. Turn onto the campus in front of the Parkinson Building and follow Cavendish Road around the back of the Laidlaw Library to find the car park.
Address: The Laidlaw Library, University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT


Please register via Eventbrite. To respect the library’s users, the maximum capacity for this tour is 12 people. You can still register if the tour becomes full, and will be contacted if a place becomes available.
