Our training courses in Bradford are held in a training centre located in the historic area of Little Germany. The buildings in Little Germany date back to the late 19th century and are the legacy of wealthy merchants from Mainland Europe who built imposing warehouses for the sales and storage of their goods. Nowadays, many of the buildings have been converted to offices and living spaces, but the area is still one of Bradford's busiest commercial areas.
The address of the training centre is:
City Training Services
39/41 Chapel Street
The training facilities are contemporary: they feature purpose built state-of-the-art training rooms. There is cafe, and a lounge area for delegates who wish to unwind, catch up with the latest Sky news, or read the newspaper.
Getting to the Bradford Training Centre from the South, East, and West
(e.g. Sheffield, Manchester, Hull, Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Birmingham, Coventry, London)
Exit the M62 at Junction 26 and take the M606 to Bradford. Continue on the M606 to the end, then follow the road around to the right and onto the A6177 Rooley Lane. Continue past Asda supermarket then go left at the roundabout onto the A650. Continue straight ahead at the next two roundabouts. As you approach the city centre bear right and continue on the A650 Shipley Airedale Road (towards Shipley) then turn left at the junction with the A647 Leeds Road towards the City Centre. Immediately before the traffic lights, turn right onto Chapel Street. The training centre is at the top of Chapel Street on the left.
Getting to our Bradford Training Centre from the North
(e.g. York, Durham, Newcastle, Edinburgh)
If you are arriving from the north-west you will probably use the A629/A650 via Skipton and Keighley. From the north-east it is most convenient to use the A1 or A19, and reach Bradford via the A59 and then the A658 south of Harrogate. Once you are on the A650 Shipley Airedale Road, turn right onto A647 Leeds Road toward the City Centre. Then follow the directions from Leeds Road as described above.
Getting to our Bradford Training Centre from Leeds-Bradford Airport
(Direct flights from Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Belfast, Bristol, Brussels, Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Gatwick & Heathrow, Paris CDG, Isle of Man & Jersey)
Bradford is located just seven miles form Leeds-Bradford International Airport. There is a bus linking the city centre with the airport leaving every ½ hour Monday-Saturday and every hour on Sundays. Bus service numbers are 647/651/747. Alternatively, a taxi from the airport to Bradford City Centre will cost around GBP 15.
Getting to our Bradford Training Centre from Manchester Airport
(Flights from most major world cities)
It is possible to get the train to Bradford from Manchester Airport, but you have to change at Leeds or Huddersfield. The overall journey time is between 1.5 to 2 hours.
Bradford is served by two stations, Bradford Interchange and Bradford Forster Square. Both stations are within a 10 minute walk away from the training centre but there is also a taxi rank available outside both stations. The fare will be around £4.
At the training centre on Chapel Street, Burnett Street car park can be found on your right if you turn left onto Upper Park Gate. It costs £3.50 all day, and usually has spaces before 9am. There is on-street parking all around Little Germany, but is limited to 4 hours. For ample secure all-day parking, we recommend 'Leisure Exchange' multi-storey carpark which is a 5 minute walk away and costs £3.20 all day. It is next to the Express by Holiday Inn and the 'Cineworld' Multiplex cinema - instead of turning right when on the A647 Leeds Road, turn left immediately after the traffic lights and follow the road to the car park entrance. For more information on parking and tariffs see the Bradford Council web site.
Training delegates who experience disabilities which require them to park within a short distance of the training centre should contact us as soon as possible so that we may try and make appropriate arrangements.
