Getting to us by Car:

 

Oxford Road now has a Bus Priority Scheme in place along most of Oxford Road/ Oxford Street, for buses, black cabs and cycles and there are bus gates in action. General traffic may still use Oxford Road northbound (not southbound) between Grosvenor Street and Whitworth Street, we would highly recommend taking a look at the map here: https://www.tfgm.com/maps/oxford-road for an idea of the scheme works. If you are using a satnav you should be able to find us using our postcode M1 7DU, do check however that your satnav is up to date and is aware of the Bus Priority Scheme as there is a fine for using the bus gates incorrectly.
