    Road Directions

    Visiting by car: Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre can be found just off the A535 between Holmes Chapel and Alderley Edge, clearly signposted along the nearby roads with brown signs. We are approximately 6 miles from Junction 18 of the M6. Sat Nav users SK11 9DW


    By rail: From Goostrey. Turn right down Station Road to the church in Goostrey village. Turn right at church and follow country roads, do not turn off this road, even though you appear to be heading away from the telescope. The road goes over the railway bridge and the entrance is on the right hand side.

    Visiting by taxi.: Alderley Edge, Macclesfield, Knutsford and Holmes Chapel are all within a 25 minute taxi ride
