Located just outside Kirkby Lonsdale, voted the number 1 place to live in the North West by The Sunday Times, Sedbergh Prep School enjoys an enviable location between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Park. Its location also benefits from excellent road and rail links, and two international airports are within easy distance.

By Road

Sedbergh Prep School is just five miles from the M6 J36, giving fast motorway access to Scotland, the Midlands and the South. From the East the recommended route is to use the A66 or A65. The A684 through the Yorkshire Dales is beautiful, but very much slower.


Sedbergh Prep School is within a 90 minute drive of Manchester and Liverpool international airports, with Manchester Airport having domestic connections from London Heathrow and Gatwick and also serving European and worldwide destinations.


Oxenholme Lake District station, just 20 minutes from the School, is a key stopping point on the West Coast Main Line, with direct trains from London Euston taking around 2.5 hours. Sedbergh Prep School is 25 minutes from the Lake District town of Kendal, and just 30 minutes from the city of Lancaster.
