Follow Chester Road (A5102) to the mini roundabout almost directly opposite the entrance to Notcutts Garden Centre. There are brown signs to the Museum on both sides of the roundabout.
Turn into the Woodford Garden Village and on to Lancastrian Way. Follow the road to the left, passing a children's playground to the right. Take the second right on to Ringway Avenue which is signed to the museum. Go straight on through the gap in the tall wooden fence.
You are now on a small road made of good quality tarmac which takes you across the former airfield. Follow the brown signs to the museum, turning left at the marked T junction. Cross over to join the old runway on your right via a short strip of gravel at the next brown sign (it is a bit narrow so please take care). Follow the road around to the right (it is a blind bend so please take care) and our awesome Vulcan will come into view.
Drive past the Museum and our car park is immediately on your right. Parking is free and includes 6 disabled spaces.
There is strictly no access past the Museum to the old CAE building and flight sheds.
Please adhere to the 20 mph speed limit through the Redrow housing estate and across the former airfield. Take care as you will be driving through an active building site, don't be distracted and please do not stop anywhere on the former airfield.

The nearest train station is Poynton.
The nearest bus stop is located outside Budgens on Chester Road (A5102). It is on the 42B Manchester - Woodford route which passes close to Cheadle Hulme train station.
Please note, due to the Museum's location in the middle of an active construction site, there is currently NO pedestrian access.
Cyclists are welcome to visit the Museum and there is a covered bicycle rack at the side of the car park. The route across the former airfield for cyclists is the same as for motorised vehicles. Cyclists are asked to take care as there is construction work being carried out along the route.
The Museum is currently located in the centre of a large construction site. Regretfully, pedestrian access is therefore prohibited at this point in time.
