Travel to the Palace

The address of this hotel is: Oxford Street, Manchester, M60 7HA, +44 161 288 1111

From Manchester Airport

We recommend the Airport rail link to Manchester Oxford Road rail station as the fastest and cheapest way to get almost directly to the hotel.

You will find the rail link at Manchester Airport by following signs from Arrivals to ‘The Station’ (this is the name for the Airport’s combined train, bus and coach station, serving all three terminals). Journey times vary from 13 minutes (non-stop) to 25 minutes. Piccadilly services depart at approximately 5-minute intervals in the daytime, and there are at least three services per hour at all times from 04.00 to around 01.20 (1.20am).

As of July 2013, a single (one-way) ticket from Manchester Airport to Piccadilly or Oxford Road costs £4.70 during peak travel hours or £4.00 off-peak.

Alternatively, taxis are available. See From Manchester Airport to the city centre for full details.

From Manchester Oxford Road rail station

The hotel is around 1 minute’s walk from the station as follows:

  • Exit the station and go down the steps on your right; cross the cobbled courtyard to emerge on Oxford Street directly opposite the Palace.
  • Alternatively, avoiding the steps: take the road sloping downwards to your left, turn right and immediately right again at the bottom onto Oxford Street, and you will see the Palace up ahead on the left-hand side.

How to get from the hotel to University Place (main Congress venue)

Walking: 10 to 15 minutes. A very simple walk, straight down Oxford Street/Oxford Road.

Bus: any Oxford Road corridor bus, around 5 minutes
