You can choose to make your own travel arrangements to Huddersfield directly from Manchester International Airport. There are frequent train services from Manchester International Airport to Huddersfield train station. A standard class single ticket costs approximately £23.50 anytime and the train journey from Manchester International Airport to Huddersfield takes around one hour.
Once you arrive at Huddersfield train station, you then need to make your way to your accommodation. There is a taxi stop outside the front of the station. Use the first taxi at the front of the line of taxis. Make sure you have money to pay for the journey, usually £5.00 - £10.00. Cash machines are available at the train station.
Please be advised that if your flight lands into the UK late at night or in the early hours of the morning, the University approved taxi driver service is more suitable as you may have to wait a number of hours at the airport for the next available train to Huddersfield.
We wish you a safe and pleasant journey, and look forward to welcoming you to Huddersfield!
