Directions to Carver’s Warehouse, 77 Dale Street
The easiest way to reach the Manchester office is by train. Below are directions for walking from Piccadilly, Victoria and Oxford Road train stations. Carver’s Warehouse is a building with a square modern frontage in pale stone.
From Piccadilly (allow 5 mins)
Leaving Piccadilly by the main entrance, bear right down to the first junction. Turn immediately right onto Ducie Street. Then take the first road on the left, which will bring you onto Dale Street. Cross over the canal and the office is then up ahead on your right, adjacent to a car park.
From Victoria (allow 20 – 30 mins)
Exit Victoria onto Victoria Station Approach (via the exit next to Ginsters). You should see the National Football Museum (large glass building) in front of you. Bear left and walk up the road with the museum on your right. At the main road (Corporation Street), turn right and walk along with the Printworks on your left. Turn first left onto Whity Grove (you should see Next on the opposite side of the road) and walk past Hard Rock Café and Tiger Tiger. Continue straight ahead up this road, passing the Arndale car park on your right and continue straight ahead across a junction where there are tram lines. Then turn right onto Thomas Street (shortly after walking past Shudehill Bus Station on your left). Continue along Thomas Street then turn right onto Tib Street which is the sixth road on right, just after a multi-storey car park. Take the first left onto Church Street, which shortly becomes Dale Street. Carver’s Warehouse is at the far end after junctions with Lever Street and Newton Street. If you reach a car park and canal you have gone a little too far.
From Oxford Road (allow 15 mins)
When exiting the station, walk down the hill with the sculpture on your right. With Sainsbury’s in front of you, turn to your right and cross the road. You should now have the Palace Hotel in front of you on the right and the Palace Theatre to your left. Go straight down Whitworth Street between the hotel and the theatre and continue along until you come to the Manchester Metropolitan University Sackville Street building on your right. Cross over the road and take a left fork onto Aytoun Street, passing Manchester Business School on the left hand corner. Follow Aytoun Street (with the Doubletree by Hilton in front of you), crossing to your right where the tramlines cross the road. Turn right down Auburn Street (which is a small street with the Malmaison Hotel at the far end). This will bring you to a large junction on London Road and you should see the approach to Piccadilly Station over the road on your right. Go straight ahead across London Road and walk past the end of the station approach road up Ducie Road. Then take the first exit on the left, which will bring you onto Dale Street. Cross over the canal and the office is then up ahead on your right, adjacent to a car park.
The nearest tram stops to Dale Street are:
- Piccadilly Station
- Piccadilly Gardens
There is a large public car park adjacent to Carver’s Warehouse. Alternatively there are a number of other car parks within a five minute walk of the office.
