Getting to Gallery Oldham
The Metrolink route through the heart of Oldham drops you just two minutes from our door! From Oldham Central station head towards Sainsbury’s car park and almost immediately you’ll see our building.
The nearest car park is Southgate Street pay and display. There is 3 hours free parking on a Saturday. More details about town centre parking .
Gallery Oldham welcomes disabled people. There are accessible toilets and baby changing facilities.
UPDATE 16 March 2018. Unfortunately a flood has caused some damage to our lifts and neither are expected to be operational until some time in mid April. Please check our website for progress updates.
There are two disabled parking spaces at the bottom of Greaves Street, next to the Gallery and Oldham Library and Lifelong Learning Centre, and several spaces on the Southgate Street pay and display car park, with access to the Gallery across Southgate Street.

We arrange audio described tours for a number of our exhibitions. For more information and to download our Social Story please visit our Accessibility page.
