By Metrolink Tram
The nearest metrolink tram station is Heaton Park. Trams run regularly from the City Centre and other destinations. There is a gate into the park directly opposite the station, and once in the park you should keep walking straight ahead ignoring the paths going off to the left and right. At the ‘T-junction' turn left and walk up the hill. You will eventually see the hall to your right and the Farm Centre buildings -with the clock tower to your left. It takes 10 - 15 minutes to walk from the Station Gate into the historic core of the park.
Please contact Metrolink for tram times and service information.
