Manchester Art Gallery is located on Mosley Street in central Manchester. If you're travelling by train, you can disembark at Manchester Piccadilly, Manchester Oxford Road or Manchester Victoria stations. We'd then recommend taking the Metrolink from Victoria or Piccadilly (Altrincham or Eccles direction) to Market Street or St Peter’s Square.

If you're travelling by car, you can find the Gallery by following signs to the city centre after coming off the motorway. Manchester is ringed by the M60, linking to the UK’s extensive motorway network.

Car parking is available at the NCP car parks on Chepstow Street, Faulkner Street or Sackville Street. All are within five minutes of the gallery. The nearest disabled parking is on York St and Mount St.

If you're visiting our pop-up Open Evening after attending Create Your Future at Manchester Central Convention Complex, we'd recommend walking the 5-minute journey to Manchester Art Gallery.

After leaving the Manchester Central Convention Complex, walk down Mount Street, then turn right onto Peter Street, and then take a left onto Mosley Street where you will find the Manchester Art Gallery

We know that travel expenses can quickly add up, and we don't want that to stop you exploring your future opportunities with us – that's why we introduced our travel bursary

If you're travelling to our pop-up Open Evening from outside the city, you could be eligible for our travel bursary and could claim up to £80 towards your travel expenses.

Email us at to find whether you're eligible for the bursary.
