Travel & Car Parking

Please arrive at the venue for teas and coffees at 10.00 for a 10.30 start.

Nowgen is easily accessible from all the major motorways (M6, M62, M60 and M56) depending on where you are travelling from. The attached link may be of use:

We have also been advised to make visitors aware not to travel along Oxford Road, but to come to the venue from Upper Brook Street. This is because a large part of Oxford Road is for buses, taxis and bikes whilst car drivers are charged and the signage is quite difficult to decipher. Drivers using sat navs will also need to be aware.

The venue is located adjacent to Manchester Royal Infirmary as shown on page 4 of the pdf.

Parking
A multi-storey car park is available on Grafton Street, next to the Nowgen Centre.

Up to 30 minutes FREE
30 mins – 3 hours £2.50
3 hours – 6 hours £5.00
6 hours – 24 hours £15.00

The car park operates a licence plate recognition system so you will need to input your registration number and payment into the machine before leaving the car park.
