Travelling To SuperSkills

SuperSkills Construction Training is in Thirsk, Yorkshire.  The Postcode is YO7 3AB.

People come from all over the place to SuperSkills – and it’s only for one day!

SatNav Users Beware!  Every Postcode has a place in the world where it lives.  Your SatNav will take you to that exact point.  Ours is mapped at the “wrong” end of Blakey Lane.  If you find yourself outside the Crown & Anchor pub, just drive along Blakey Lane and you will find SuperSkills on the Right.  (Of course, you might just want to stay at the pub……………….more fun, but probably less productive.)

If you are coming from London, the train takes 2 hours twenty minutes from King’s Cross.

If you are coming from the North East via the A19 South:

As you get to the Thirsk & York exit, leave the dual carriageway and follow the A19 York signs.  Go down the slip road, turn left and enter the right hand lane.  Turn right into Blakey Lane and you will see Thirsk Rural Business Centre entrance 200 yards on the left.  Go in and follow the car park until you see the SuperSkills buildings.

If you are coming from Scotland, Cumbria or the North East Via A1(M) South:

Proceed from Scotch Corner to Junction 49 and exit the motorway.  Take directions to A168 Teesside.  (See also below)

If you are coming from the South, South West, Midlands or North West Via A1(M) North:

Proceed to Junction 49 and exit the motorway.  Take directions to A168 Teesside.  (See also below)

Please note – if you are driving up from the South and have a choice, presently the A1 is quicker than the M1 and we suggest it as a preferred route.

Once on the A168  North:

Travel approx eight miles to the Thirsk & York exit, leave the dual carriageway and follow the A19 York signs.  Go down the slip road, take the fourth exit from the roundabout, go under the bridge and get in the right hand lane.  Turn right into Blakey Lane and you will see Thirsk Rural Business Centre entrance 200 yards on the left.  Go in and follow the car park until you see the SuperSkills buildings.

If you are coming from York, or East Yorkshire:

Take the A19 towards Thirsk.  Just before Thirsk, there is a short dual carriageway.  Take the left turn into Blakey Lane and you will see Thirsk Rural Business Centre entrance 200 yards on the left.  Go in and follow the car park until you see the SuperSkills buildings.

Coming by Train:

Thirsk has an excellent train service, being only just over two hours from London and two hours thirty minutes from Edinburgh.  Travel to Thirsk Railway Station and we can arrange for you to be picked up if you wish.  We recommend Trainline  as an excellent means of getting tickets.

Coming by Coach or Air:

National Express Coaches come into Thirsk Market Square and you can Fly Into Leeds Bradford – contact us to make collection arrangements.

Don’t forget –  it’s only for one day!  (And quite a few people take the opportunity to bring their partners and make a weekend of it!)
