Attendees seeking reimbursement must follow SFC travel policy. Most importantly, take a screen shot of your airfare search. Your ticket must be within $100 of the lowest fare. Keep receipts for transport and lodging. Meal cost and misc. expenses are handled by a per diem and don't require receipts.
Google Flights search is probably your best bet. kayak.com and mobissimo.com can also be useful.
There is a small airport in Leeds (Leeds-Bradford). http://www.justtheflight.co.uk/cheap-flights-from-LBA/
Manchester airport is 1.5 hours away (~$30, 50 min; ~$10 if booked several weeks in advance )
Trains between London (Kings Cross) and Leeds take a bit more than 2 hours. Book your ticket one month ahead to save 70%!
Trains between Paris and Leeds: $70 one way, 5 hours, booked far in advance.
Devenshire Hall is about 25 minutes by bus #1 (every 10 minutes) or a 40 minute walk from Leeds Train station.
Check AirBnB. Often 1/3 the cost of a hotel room.
The hackfest will take place in Devenshire Hall at the University of Leeds. (Cumberland Road, Leeds, LS6 2EQ)
A map of the U. of Leeds campus can be found at http://www.meetinleeds.co.uk/map-of-venues
