Manchester Craft & Design Centre is committed to improving access for our customers, and we aim to ensure that all disabled visitors have an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately our two-storey Victorian building currently has no lift, making first floor access difficult for visitors with mobility restrictions.

On the ground floor we have an accessible toilet which has a Radar lock, and a key is also available at our Oak St. Café Bar. Disabled parking bays for Blue Badge holders are available on Copperas Street, and we welcome guide dogs and hearing dogs. Large print interpretation text for our temporary exhibitions is available on request.

The ground floor toilet has baby change facilities, and our Café also has high chairs for younger visitors.

Our management team and resident artists are happy to assist your visit, for example by bringing products downstairs, audio-description, or helping carry buggies or prams upstairs.

Please contact the management office on 0161 832 4274 or email to discuss your requirements

We have aimed to make this website as accessible as possible. The site is built to industry-standard levels of accessibility in mind, with screen-reader compatible markup.

We continue to improve access in the future by raising funds to refurbish the building, making it fully accessible to everyone.
