When visiting Leeds Docks, you must experience the water taxi! Not only making the journey between Granary Wharf and Leeds Docks an easy one, you’ll get to see the city like never before, from the wonderful waterways. Only £1 per person per journey and children under 5 ride free.
As you float leisurely down the river, you’ll pass a variety of fantastic sites, from classic architecture and historic locations to modern developments and interesting art installations.

There are two water taxis that run every 15 minutes, although you can keep up to date live with Leeds Dock water taxi timetable updates from the Twitter account @LeedsWaterTaxis. Best of all, use of the water taxis is only £1 per journey, all of which gets invested back into making the water taxis better for riders. So there’s no excuse not to spend 10-15 minutes making this lovely journey.
Seating is available inside and out on the water taxi, so you don’t need to worry about being damp on a rainy day and comfortably seats 12 passengers so you and the family can travel in style. Keep an eye out for the yellow boat with water taxi on the back.
Mumtaz Leeds is just across the bridge from the water taxi, why not pop in for a colourful mocktail or a warming hot drink while you wait for the taxi to arrive or enjoy some delicious Indian food before heading off on your next venture through the city.
