Post-industrial Bradford is full of surprises: beyond the imposing mills and Victorian terraces you'll find a cosmopolitan centre with a thriving arts scene. And when you hire a car, Bradford becomes a gateway to the Pennines, with the Yorkshire Dales to the north and the Peak District to the south.

Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) is around 13km (8 miles) north east of Bradford city centre. There are several car hire operators with offices at the airport. Book in advance and you can bag a cheap deal on Bradford car rentaland be away in next to no time.

The airport’s car rental centre is on the corner of Whitehouse Lane and Scotland Lane, next to the long-stay car parks. The centre is the first stop if you hop aboard the free 24-hour shuttle bus from outside the terminal.

Car hire operators at Leeds Bradford Airport include:

  • Avis (Tel: +44113 250 3880)
  • Enterprise (Tel: +44113 391 1999)
  • Europcar (Tel: +44113 250 9066)
  • Hertz (Tel: +44113 250 4811)

It’s straightforward to get to Bradford city centre from the airport, either along the A658 or by a combination of the A658 and the A6176, A6177 and Midland Road. The drive should take around 25 minutes, depending on traffic.

You can also pick up a hire car from the city centre, with booking offices located on the A6177 ring road and to the south of Bradford Interchange train and bus station.
