World Championships Travel and Parking

Coming to the UCI World Championships in Harrogate?  Find information and links below to help you plan your journey, get here easily and have a great time with us in the heart of Yorkshire for a truly once in a lifetime event.

Harrogate is the perfect town to host the finish line for all the Yorkshire 2019 races.  This compact town with huge areas of green space not only offers a beautiful setting for the racing, but also all the points of interest are just a short walk away.

Coming by Car

Many of the larger car parks in Harrogate will be tricky to get to for the event, or are being used by the event itself.  To help with that there are several car parks easily accessible from outside the town specifically for spectators coming to see the races.  These are all just a 20 - 30 minute walk from the town centre, official Fan Zone and finish line.

There are a number of car parking options listed below, which can be booked in advance.  Some of these are closer than others, please read the detail and location of the parking carefully before booking.

Find a full breakdown of closed roads during the Championships here.

Arriving in the town centre by Bicycle

Cycling is of course a great way to see the racing, especially if you are heading out to catch some of the racing along the route, or are heading to a climb where there is always a great atmosphere of celebration.

If you are coming into town by bike please be aware of the following.

Bicycles will not be permitted into the Fan Zone
There will be Bike Park across from the main entrance with limited capacity, so especially on the final weekend it may be full.
Trains to Harrogate will not allow bicycles during the championships to allow maximum capacity.

              

Arriving by Train

An increased train service will be available from Leeds, though at peak times there may still be some queues.  To allow the most efficient use of the rail network bicycles will not be permitted on the trains during the championships. 

If you are cycling to your nearest train station, please secure your bike there and continue on foot.

Harrogate Railway Station is ideally located in the centre of Harrogate and is only a five-minute walk from the course, the finish line and the official Fan Zone. 

Further details of travelling by train can be found here.
