Travel and restrictions


We recommend that delegates based on the UK travel by train. The nearest stations are Manchester Piccadilly (for long distance trains) and Manchester Oxford Road, both of which are about a 15 minute walk from the venue.

Manchester Airport has good international connections and you can reach the city centre with a roughly 20 minute train ride to Piccadilly station. Alternatively, you may find flights to London being cheaper and faster depending on your origin. From there you can reach Manchester by train from London Euston, which means you need to account for travel from/to the airport to London Euston.
