Transport Options

Please see below a variety of options on how to get to The Sharp Project.

By Car

Satnav – 1 Thorp Road, M40 5BJ (53.50201, -2.19344)

From Manchester City Centre

Head towards the Northern Quarter or Victoria Station, then onto Oldham Road (A62) via Great Ancoats Street. Continue along Oldham Road for 2 miles (3 km) and turn left onto Thorp Road (B6393), then immediately left again into The Sharp Project and press the buzzer.

By Bus

The following services pass The Sharp Project:

24, 72, 82, 83, 180, 181, 184, 188, X82 and X84

Buses leave from Stand F on Lever Street or at the bottom of Oldham Road. The journey takes about 10 minutes. Look for the Holiday Inn on your right, then “The Gateway” junction on your left, and The Sharp Project is the large building immediately on your left. Alight at the second stop and walk in the direction you were travelling; turn left onto Thorp Road, then left again and report to the security lodge.

Our nearest Metrolink stop is Central Park, which is on the Oldham & Rochdale line (via Victoria Station).

The Sharp Project’s entrance is approximately a quarter of a mile (400 metres) from the stop. Turn right out of the Metrolink and then walk up the hill under the bridge on The Gateway then turn left onto Oldham Road, then left again onto Thorp Road, where you’ll find the main entrance on your left.

(Remember, if you’re getting a train from outside Manchester and it says Manchester CTLZ (central/city zone) on the train ticket, you’ll be able to travel to Victoria Station on the tram for free. However, this will not allow you travel for free to Central Park, which is outside the Central Zone. You’ll need to purchase a separate ticket for this journey.)

By Train

If your train stops at Manchester Piccadilly or Deansgate, you can use your ticket on the Metrolink (tram) to reach Victoria Station, whereupon you can travel to The Sharp Project by Metrolink tram, although you’ll need to purchase a ticket for the second part of the journey (See
metrolink information above).

If your train stops at Oxford Road, you’ll be able to use the ticket to travel to Victoria, from where you can take the tram.

Victoria and Piccadilly stations also have taxi ranks; we are located approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) from both stations.
