Getting Here

The Whitworth is a walk, bike ride or bus journey from Manchester city centre, and close to Manchester Museum and the University of Manchester campus of which we are a part.

We are located in an area that’s home to two universities – and the largest academic campus in the country - numerous cultural institutions, four NHS hospitals and the beautiful Whitworth Park we call home.
