Road Directions

The M602 runs from the M6 right into Salford. Turn left at the end of the motorway and follow the road up to a T-junction with the A6. Turn right here then immediately left (signposted University and Salford Crescent Railway station). Turn sharp left at the bottom of the road, passing back under the A6. Take the first turning right and then first left. This puts you by a car park at the back of the library.

This includes coaches to and from Blackburn, Bolton, and Blackpool. Jubilee House is distinctive with its black and white gable ends.
