To reach us from Leeds City Centre

On Foot

We are a 5-10 minute walk through the University of Leeds campus from the Parkinson Building on Woodhouse Lane. With your back to the Parkinson Building steps, turn right and right again under the archway. From here we are easily signposted across campus to the crossroads at Moorland Road and Clarendon Road. From there, turn left down Clarendon Road and we are the second turning on the right, into the Western Campus where you’ll see the Michael Marks Building ahead of you (we're opposite the Business School - the old Leeds Grammar School).

There are lots of campus maps dotted around the entrances to the University so it’s easy to find your way. Use these to check for directions and make sure you’re on course; we’re shown as the Michael Marks Building, on the Western Campus, no. 13 on the map.

By Train

Our nearest train station is Leeds City Station. From the station, you can collect a handy Walkit Map from the visitor centre. We’re a 30 minute walk or just 5 minutes in a taxi.

By Bus

You can get the No 1 bus from stop Z1 on Bishopgate Street outside the train station. Get off at the Parkinson Building and then simply follow the On Foot instructions above.

Coming from the bus station? Get the No 56 bus from Eastgate to the Leeds University Business School on Moorland Road. When you get off the bus, keep the Business School on your right and follow the road back towards Clarendon Road crossroads. Turn right at the crossroads and we are the second turning on the right, into the Western Campus.

By Car

We have parking spaces for Disabled Blue Badge holders. We can't offer parking for visitors unless they hold a Blue Badge.

Free weekend parking is available for our visitors on the Western Campus. The entrance is off Clarendon Road, just press the buzzer at the barrier and say you have come to visit the M&S Company Archive. There are also several 4-hour limited parking spaces close to the Michael Marks Building.

If you would like to book a group visit, arrange to use the Reading Room or if you have a question about M&S history please get in touch.

The Michael Marks Building is fully wheelchair accessible and there are parking spaces for Blue Badge holders right outside the building.
