The Thornbury Centre is situated on the B6381 from Bradford towards Leeds (Leeds Old Road), just beyond the Bradford outer ring road (B6177), at the corner of Upper Rushton Road. The Centre has on-site parking at the rear of the building.

From the top of the M606 take the fourth exit at the roundabout, following signs to Leeds (A647). Continue along the dual carriageway and proceed straight on the next two roundabouts, on the B6177 Bradford outer ring road. Ignore the first sign to Thornbury on the right. At the next main set of lights, the A647 to Leeds junction, continue straight on. At the next set of traffic lights, turn right onto the B6381, Leeds Old Road (Habib’s restaurant on the corner).
The Thornbury Centre is on the left after about ¼ mile, at the pelican crossing. Immediately after the pelican crossing turn left into Upper Rushton Road.

You are now on Leeds Road (A647). The road will climb gradually as you approach the next set of lights – turn left at these lights on to the A6177 (signposted Ring Road, Harrogate).
