Directions to the Buy Art Fair

Owing to a venue change over each of the last three years there has been some confusion about the location of the venue for this year’s fair, so here’s a description:


Quay House

Quay Street


M3 3BE

If you get lost find the Opera House – Quay House is to the left of the Opera House as you look at it.  It’s very close to the Museum of Science and Industry too.  Here’s the Google Map: Quay House

Coming to Buy Art Fair on the Bus?

The easiest bus to get is the Free Metroshuttle – No.2 or 3.  No. 3 drops on Quay Street and no. 2 drops outside the Museum of Science and Industry.  As you look at the museum, walk right – down to the end of Lower Byrom Street.  When it meets Quay Street, Quay House is in front of you to the right – turn right onto Quay street and the entrance is along the road.   You can ask the driver to direct you towards the Opera House too.  MetroShuttle Pocket Guide


If you’re driving the cheapest parking I’ve found is £5 a day on Duke Street – follow the road down past Ellis Brigham (on the right) and turn left underneath the arches.


Give me a call if you’re lost and I will do my best to direct you to the venue: 07870 360213 – sometimes only a human voice can get you to where you need to be!!
