Oxford Road connects the RNCM by bus to the City Centre and all of Oxford Road, Piccadilly and Victoria train stations. Oxford Road station is a fifteen minute walk away. Go to www.tfgm.com for details of buses and trains in the Greater Manchester area.
Please note that due to recent carriageway changes made by TFGM, visitors can no longer exit Rosamond Street at the junction with Oxford Road (as it is now one way) and are therefore encouraged to exit via Higher Cambridge Street or Higher Chatham Street.
From Monday 8 August through to Sunday 4 September, the southbound lane of Oxford Road – heading out of the city centre – will be closed to all traffic between Booth Street East and Hathersage Road. The inbound lane, heading into the city centre, will be maintained during this time. Traffic heading out of the city centre is advised to use the alternative route, Upper Brook Street, during this time.
Work is ongoing into 2017 to redevelop Oxford Road into a pedestrian-friendly boulevard, giving priority to buses and bikes. Visitors are advised that there will be increased congestion as a result of this and to allow additional time when making their way to the RNCM. Please see www.tfgm.com/buspriority to find out how your route to the RNCM may change in the near future.
