How long does it take to get from Manchester to Leeds?
That depends on the traffic, weather and the mode of transport.
Just under an hour on a good day by car - 58 miles.
If you dont hit heavy traffic you should do it comfortably at legal speeds in 1 hour give or take 5 minutes.
I travel from Swinton (West Manchester/Salford) to Leeds every day at the moment. If I set off at 6am, I make it there for about 6.50, which is around how long the journey should take. Setting off at 6.30am will see me arrive at about 8am, so a 90 minute journey. Leaving at 7pm gets me there at 9pm... and you can expect a rush hour journey from Manchester - Leeds or return to take…
