In the car

From the M62: Take junction 26 and join the M606, continue on M606 to the A6177 junction, take the A6177 (Bradford ring road, signposted Harrogate/Leeds) and follow for approximately 1 mile, passing a small roundabout with traffic lights Asda Superstore on the left. At the next roundabout, take the first exit onto A650 Wakefield road following the signs for Bradford city centre. Carry on for 1.6 miles, going straight on at roundabouts towards the city centre. Go past the Leisure Exchange/ Holiday Inn on your left and straight through set of lights on to Shipley Airdale Road, then almost immediately after, take the first turn on your left into Peckover Street. Once you get to the end of Peckover Street, take a left down Church Bank, go downhill a few yards and you will see an archway on your right-hand side – this is the entrance to our car park.

From Leeds: Approach by the A647 signposted Bradford. When you reach an intersection with Gallagher Leisure Park (Odeon, Health Club) on your left and a green open space on your right, take the middle lane and head for the city centre. Take the second exit onto Leeds Road and continue for 2 miles until you come to a crossroads with Shipley Airedale Road (A650). Kala Sangam is Brown posted from A650. At this junction, take a right turn on to Shipley Airedale Road then almost immediately after take the first exit on your left into Peckover Street. When you reach the end of Peckover Street, take a left down Church Bank through the “access only” road. Go downhill a few yards and you will see an archway on your right hand side. This is the entrance to Kala Sangam Arts Centre car park.
