    By Public Transport – On the Saturday there will be the usual Free Vintage Routemaster Bus Service from and to Urmston Railway Station during the show opening hours.

    As an alternative, Partington is on bus route 255 (Stagecoach) between the village and Piccadilly Gardens (Manchester) and which runs via Urmston (Queens Road) where there is the main line railway station.

    In Partington Village about a 1/4 mile away there is a Tesco Express which will have food and two pubs which regrettably do not serve food.
