    You could always park at the White Rose Centre and get the bus into town.

    Leeds has zero free parking. The city is crying out for a park and ride scheme.

    There are horrendous road works in this area at the moment, but there should be plenty of parking on St Marks Road close by, since the students are on holiday at present

    There's Warner Village on Cardigan Road. Last time I parked there you didn't need a ticket or anything. It's a bit of a walk but a very short bus ride to the centre of town from there.

    And you could always stop at the sheesh mahal for a bite to eat before you go home! (My favourite restaurant!)
    May all your dots fall silently to the ground.
  • If you are coming into Leeds to shop you can afford to pay for parking !
    Leeds apart from the market isnt a cheap place to shop any more ie with Harvey Nicks etc in the city . Go to the councils car parks look here and follow the links for visiting
  • Just thinking id go to York personally myself rather than battle through Leeds they have cracking park n ride in place .
  • How about getting one of these
