We are very close to Manchester Oxford Road (5 minutes walk), Manchester Piccadilly (15 minutes) and Manchester Victoria (15 minutes) rail stations. National Rail Enquiries has information about services.

By tram

The nearest Metrolink stop is St. Peter’s Square or Deansgate-Castlefield (both 5 minutes walk). TFGM has more details.

Many local buses serve Cambridge Street and Oxford Road, including numbers 15, 16, 41, 42, 43, 44, 48, 50, 85, 86, 99, 101, 104, 108, 109, 111, 130, 142, 143, 145, 147, 191, 197, 250, 251, 253, 263, 290,and 291. Again, TFGM has more details.

By car

We encourage you to travel into Manchester by public transport if you can. However, if you are travelling my car, there is very limited short-stay on-street parking immediately outside the Engine House. There is also an NCP car park opposite the building on Hulme Street.


We are closer to the corner of Hulme Street than Google Maps would suggest, but here is our location anyway.
