This is an impressive architecture, the building is in the middle of Manchester, 10 minutes walk from Piccadilly train station, 5 minutes to the John Rylands library, very nice restaurants in the area. Also, close to the free buses.

There is signage around the outside of the building directing visitors to a particular entrance. When you get there it is barriered off' with another sign that says 'Shut until 2024'. Very funny.
