Travelling to Highlander York

0800 156 0777

By Rail

We are located just 15 minutes walk from York mainline station, with direct trains to cities such including Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, and London.

Option 1: Grab a cab from the station and ask them to take you to Highlander at 31a Bishopthorpe Road (we are right next door to Trinacria a well known Italian cafe)

Option 2: Walking: Upon exiting the station turn right and follow the main road, keeping the roman city walls on your left.  After a few minutes you will reach a large cross roads with a Weatherspoons Pub on one corner and the Windmill Pub on the other corner (all good directions should include a pub in them). Head straight across and continue in a straight line and you are now on Nunnery lane. After a few hundred yards you should see the city walls on your left again together with a large car park, this means you are heading in the right direction.

Continue walking on Nunnery lane until you reach the traffic lights just before the fork in the road,  At this point cross over and then continue walking in a straight line again, ignoring the road which forks off to the left.  Continue to the end of Nunnery lane and Bishopthorpe Road is now on your right.  You should have a parade of shops going to your right, and have a cafe / bar called "Angel on the Green" opposite you.  Turn right here and walk up Bishopthorpe Road past the shops, we are approx 200 yards along the road on the right hand side, right next to the italian restaurant "Trinacria" and the cashpoints.

By Road

If you are driving, paid parking is available at Nunnery Lane car park. You can then follow the walking instructions above from the point where they pass the car park on Nunnery Lane.  

Alternatively free road side parking is available on Bishopthorpe Road itself, this starts approx from the junction of Bishopthorpe Road and Nunthorpe Drive, but please check the road side signs to be sure.

The car park which is almost next to the Highlander office is unfortunately not of use as it is limited to a maximum stay of only 3 hours, and is regularly patrolled.

By Bike

There are a good number of cycle parks (approx 10 in total) available roughly 20 metres from our door.  Some are right in the entrance to the Bishopthorpe Road car park and more are available just next to the traffic lights. There is also a good bike shop just down the road should you have any mechanical faults that need fixing while you are here.  Best of all you will be riding on the very road that was used for the Tour de France in 2014. Bishy Road was one of the opening legs of the race which started at the nearby race course.
