Manchester is well served with public transport links and many of our visitors arrive by rail at Piccadilly Station. A good way to get to the Chemistry Building from there is to catch the Oxford Road Link bus (no. 147) just opposite the station’s Fairfield Street entrance and taxi rank, and alight by the Students' Union on Oxford Road; our building is then a short walk away on Brunswick Street. The cost of this service is 80p each way and it runs every 10-15 minutes.
If you arrive at Oxford Road station, the Chemistry Building can be reached after a walk of 10-15 minutes; alternatively, catch one of the many buses which stop outside the Palace Hotel opposite the station, getting off at the Students' Union on Oxford Road.
There is parking available in the multi-storey car parks off Booth Street East and off Booth Street West (see car parks B & D respectively on the Campus Map which can be found here). Users of these car parks pay on exit, although there is a reduced rate for short-term use. The parking rate is approximately £6 to cover the length of stay required. The Visit Days are in the Chemistry Building on Brunswick Street, just a short walk from car park B. (Note that this car park also serves the very popular Aquatics Centre, which was the swimming pool for the Commonwealth Games; if this car park is full, please try car park D, which is a little further away, but will usually have spaces.)
