Buses into Bradford and Leeds pass close to the development, and some services call at the Junction 27 shops and amenities a mile and a half from the development. Shops within a few minutes’ walk include a pharmacy and a Londis convenience store with off-licence and post office facilities.

There are also food takeaways, traditional pubs, cafés and hairdressers located around the village.

High street names from fashion and phone shops to furniture and white goods are represented, including Boots, DFS, Next, River Island, M&S food, Currys PC World and Furniture Village. In addition to the superstores, restaurants and coffee shops, the parks include a 16-screen Showcase cinema and a DW Fitness Gym with cardio and resistance equipment and a swimming pool.
Drighlington’s active, welcoming community supports a wide range of sports and leisure associations. The village has football, cricket and rugby league teams, and there are youth organisations an a well respected brass band with junior and senior sections. The village also has a volunteer-run library and a social club, the Tempest Constitutional Club, that presents live music, quiz nights and other events. The open countryside around the village, and the leisure spaces within it, including Adwalton Common, sports pitches and a well equipped playground, provide excellent opportunities for walking and cycling. There is a skate park on the edge of the common, and the Manor, with its fine dining and championship golf course, is less than a mile away.
