Getting Here

Brighouse is in the heart of West Yorkshire, between Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield and has great transport links so is really easy to get to, whether you are travelling by road, bus or rail. Our town centre is compact and flat so is a great place for disabled visitors.

The Brighouse Summer Festival takes place in the town centre of Brighouse, we close a number of roads so it’s nice and safe for you to walk around

By Road

Brighouse is less than a mile from Jct 25 of the M62.


There are a number of car parks around Brighouse Town Centre and are well signposted and within easy walking distance of the Festival.

Brighouse is well served by a number of bus services that run into Brighouse Bus Station which is right in the centre of Brighouse, less than 50 metres from the Festival

By Rail

Brighouse Railway Station is to the south of the town centre and is only a 5 minute walk. There are direct rail links from Leeds, Bradford, Manchester, Liverpool and York on the Transpennine route. Grand Central run a direct service from London, several times a day.

The level streets and excellent transport links makes Brighouse a great place to visit if you are disabled. Many hundreds of visitors with disabilities attend our events and have a great day out. We also welcome assistance dogs and dogs in general. The number of people attending our events means disabled parking is at a premium. We therefore suggest arriving early and parking in the disabled bays (with a blue badge) which are available in the town centre car parks (see map). The whole town centre is closed for these events, allowing easy access for wheelchairs.
