The City of Preston is located in the North West of England and benefits from excellent national and international transport links.

Manchester International Airport is only 40 miles away.  There are frequent trains between the airport and Preston railway station.

Preston is on the West Coast Main Line so is easily reached by train.  Travel time from London is 2 hours 15 mins; Birmingham 1 hour 40 mins; and Glasgow 2 hours 16 mins.

It is only a 9 minute bus ride from the railway station to The Space Centre.   Buses travel every 10 minutes.  Take the  89 bus to Lea at Railway Stand (C) and disembark at Whinfield Lane (300ft from venue).  For more details see Preston Bus.

Preston is located just off the M6 motorway at Junction 31 so is easily reached by car. Get directions here.
