I'm travelling up to Leeds with friends next Monday morning (arriving in Leeds at 15.50), for a gig at the Brudenell Social Club, then coming back down to London on the overnight coach which leaves Leeds at 00.20 on Monday night.

Can anyone tell me, please, what facilities, if any, there are at the coach station? Even just very basic info such as, are there any toilets and is there any shelter if it happens to be raining while we're waiting for our return coach?

Also, is it easy enough to find a taxi in the area to take us to the Brudenell Social club? Will order one from the venue for getting back to the coach station.

Thanks :)

As far as i know coaches use Leeds bus station, so you should be fine for going to the toilet and depending on the time, you should also be able to get something to eat. Leeds bus station is quite modern.

As our coach arrives late-afternoon tomorrow, we're planning on looking for a pub serving decent food near the bus station.

Any recommendations? Also, do you happen to know of any reputable taxi firms, please? :)

I'm not from Leeds, but i do know the taxi rank is just outside the door of the bus station and a pub is just round the corner on the head row. If you take a walk up the head row (don't need to go too far) you will find fish shops and cafes and lots of shops.

If its a taxi rank then it could be Hackney cabs. Would be cheaper if someone knows of a local firm you can ring?

Taxi's in Leeds are on meters, you need to phone for a private hire car, but i don't know any numbers. You could probably get a number from the bar staff in the pub.
