Travelling by public transport:

Oldham’s main bus station is at the top of West Street, immediately adjacent to the Civic Centre’s tower block and its main entrance. The Queen Elizabeth Hall will be seen immediately to its right, very conveniently just across the Civic Centre car park from the bus station. Oldham is well served by buses from Manchester, surrounding towns and West Yorkshire.

The nearest Metrolink stop is Oldham, King Street. Travelling from Manchester and Victoria Station, this is the first stop after the two short, steep sections of track up to Oldham town centre. If travelling in the other direction from Rochdale and its railway station (Calder Valley line) the King Street stop comes shortly after on-street running along Union Street and the Union Street stop. It is about a 10 minute walk to reach the QEH. Walk past Mecca Bingo and the set of traffic lights at the top of Manchester Street to reach the junction of King Street, West Street, Rochdale Road and Middleton Road. Oldham’s imposing Civic Centre will be seen running along Rochdale Road and up West Street, over towards your right. Walk up the access road that cuts underneath the Civic Centre at the bottom of West Street before turning immediately right and along the side of the QEH (on your left) to reach the front entrance of the hall.
