Directions

Getting to Bramham Park

The 2022 Apex Challenge is being held at Bramham Park near Leeds in West Yorkshire which is easily accessible from the nearby A1(M). Although there is plenty of parking available on site, we would like to encourage as many teams as possible to car share to reduce the number of vehicles used.

The Event Centre is in a field within the estate grounds (SE 410423). Access is via the main Bramham Park entrance off Bramham Road (SE 402422). You should aim to arrive on site from 6pm on Friday 7 October. If you arrive before that time we may not be ready to start signing you in.
