Getting to Bradford for CommscampNorth

by Bridget Aherne

We thought we’dpost some details about how to get to Bradford by road, rail.

Kala Sangham is an arts centre in a converted Royal Mail sorting office inForster Court, Bradford and the postcode is BD1 4TY.

On the day, doors open at 9am and we’ll get started at 10am. Do get here as soon as you can to avoid the queue at the coffee machine. 

There is no parking at the venue itself. Blue badge parking is also VERY limited so do let us know by emailing if you need a blue badge space.

By car 

There are a few car parks around the city centre. For the largest car park close to the venue head to Broadway Bradford shopping centre parking, BD1 1JR.

It’s £6 for the full day. 

Find the venue by leaving the car park through the shopping centre and then go outside through the exit next to Marks and Spencer. Kala Sangam is straight in front of you on Church Bank.

Bradford is also a clean air zone. If you are travelling in a vehicle to commscampnorth.

Check if it will be charged here

By rail 

We’ll run a walking train from both railway stations. Look out for two volunteers who will be waving a red and yellow linesman’s flag and a copy of the commscampnorth logo – airport arrivals lounge stylee. 

At 9.10am on the morning of the event they’ll depart for the short walk to the venue. 

There are two railway stations. We have Bradford Forster Square railway station at five minutes’ walk (postcode: BD1 4JB) and Bradford Interchange (postcode: BD1 1RX) which is an eight-minute walk away. 

Bradford Interchange station walking train 

For the Bradford Interchange walking train, head through the ticket barrier and down the stairs straight in front of you. We’ll be waiting at the bottom of the steps in the lower concourse. 

Bradford Forster Square station walking train

For the Forster Square walking train, head past the ticket office and bear to the right. Walk past the lift and we’ll be hanging around the city centre exit, just before the slope up in front of the Midland Hotel. 

By air 

You can come to Bradford International airport, Manchester International airport or from London Heathrow and then connect to the rail network. We have Jim coming from the USA by air.
