Travelling To Access SUMMIT Manchester
Access SUMMIT is located in St Peters House which is part of The Precinct Centre – on the left hand side of Oxford Road when heading away from the city centre (same side as the Aquatics Centre, across the road from Spar and Blackwells Bookshop), close to the junction of Oxford Road and Booth Street East.
Enter St Peters House by the main entrance (up the red-brick steps) and then descend to the lower ground floor using the internal stairs or use our street-level entrance to the left of the steps.
Ample parking is available in The Aquatics Centre NCP Car Park behind us. If you are a Blue Badge Holder we can arrange access to our dedicated spaces close to The Centre reserved for badge-holders but please contact us in advance to make arrangements.
