Map & Directions

Road Directions

The A.V.P is situated off the A538 between Junction 6 of the M56 motorway and the airport tunnels.
From Junction 6 Roundabout follow the signs for Wilmslow. After a very short distance you will see Sunbank Lane on the left with sign posts for The Aviation Viewing Park and Concorde. The Romper Public House provides a very visible landmark. Turn left here and then immediately right at the crossroads onto Wilmslow Old Road and follow to the end.
