Arriving by coach 

Coach parking is free of charge for groups that have pre-booked a visit.

Coaches should park on the left-hand side of the car park, by the green fence line sign posted as ‘Coach Parking’.

Arriving by train

The most convenient station is at Macclesfield, which is on the West Coast Mainline from London Euston to Manchester. On arrival at Macclesfield you will then need to take a 20-minute taxi ride to the Jodrell Bank. The taxi rank is directly outside the main exit from Macclesfield station.

There is also a station in the nearby village of Goostrey, on the line between Manchester and Crewe. It is a 2.5 mile walk from there along narrow country lanes and so we advise booking a taxi for this part of the journey. Note, you’ll need to do this in advance as there is no taxi rank at the station.

Arriving by bicycle

We are based in the Cheshire countryside and are surrounded by rural lanes including National Cycling Network routes 55,70, 71 and 573. We are 2.5miles from Goostrey rail station (which is on NCN route 573) and 10 miles from Macclesfield Rail station.

We have a covered, well lit bike shed to store your bike during your visit.
