This includes Manchester, UK!

Location

The Castle Hotel in the Northern Quarter.

66 Oldham Street, Manchester, M4 1LE.

0161 237 9485.

Transport

Parking: The venue parking facilities are not amazing.

There are parking meter bays on the street but it’s very expensive, only really good for a short stop.

There are paid parking lots around the venue, the light blue P in this OpenStreetMap centred on The Castle Hotel http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/53.48356/-2.23386, though we can’t vouch for how good they are.  A lot of them, perhaps all, are are owned by NCP http://www.ncp.co.uk/.

If you can’t decide otherwise then park in Manchester Arndale.

Public Transport:

Manchester Victoria (MCV) train station, Shudehill tram station and Manchester Piccadilly bus station are all fairly close to The Castle Hotel, see OpenStreetMap centred on The Castle Hotel.

Manchester Piccadilly (MAN) train station and Manchester Central Coach Station are not too far either.
