The Venue A great collaborative space in Leeds

Duke Studios is an open collaborative space in the City Centre of Leeds providing workspace based around a coworking model, together with an event space that will be the ideal canvas for the Pedalling Ideas event. Duke Studios look to create inspirational spaces for work and play and their ethos is the perfect match for Pedalling Ideas.


If the weather is nice (and as you know it’s always sunny in Leeds) then we will also be opening up the adjoining outside space ‘The Yarden’ as an additional space to relax and socialise. There is a bar that will of course be open for our event and situation in Duke Studios is the excellent Sheaf Street Cafeteria for all your coffee, cake and nibble requirements.


How to get there:


The venue is on Crown Point Road, just to the South of Leeds city centre and is easily accessible by all modes of transport.  Leeds train station is about a 20 minute walk away and the bus station 10 mins.  There are bus stops directly outside (serving the routes coming into the city from the South).  If driving there is metered parking in the adjoining side streets (Cudbear Street, Sheaf Street and Hunslet Rd) or directly opposite is a large pay and display car park that is part of The Tetley.


You can of course come by bike.  However if there are going to be lots of bikes then let me know so I can keep the venue informed.




There are numerous hotels in the centre of Leeds to suite all budgets and any city centre hotel will be within walking distance of the venue.  The closest hotels are:
