Getting Here

By Car

From the M53, come off at Junction 10 – signposted Queensferry and Stanlow A5117 & Cheshire Oaks and Designer Outlet.

At the bottom of the slip road, take the first exit and follow signs for the Designer Outlet and the Coliseum - B5132. You will need  to take either of the right hand lanes.

This will take you to a set of traffic lights, turning right.

You will go past Sainsburys on your right and then go straight on at the next roundabout where Cheshire Oaks – the Designer  Outlet will be on your right.

You will start to see signs for Ellesmere Port Town Centre and you need to follow these.

Go straight on at the next roundabout, where the Coliseum will be on your right, and keep heading straight towards the town centre. You will be on Stanney Lane now.

On your left you’ll go past the David Lloyd gym and a little further down on the left you will go past the new Ellesmere Port Leisure Village.

Continue for about a mile and there will be Whitby Park on your left and The Grace pub on your right. Go straight through the traffic lights and turn left into Whitby Park.

As you turn into the park you will see a large car park on your left and a children’s play area on your right. Ahead of you, you will see a tree lined drive.

To reach Whitby Hall, follow this drive. After 200 yards, take the left fork which will bring you to a smaller car park. Whitby Hall will be in front of you.

Walk up the ramp towards the blue double doors and press the buzzer on the silver box to the right of the doors.

We look forward to seeing you!

There is sometimes difficulty in finding our venue using sat navs as they often don’t recognise our postcode. An alternative postcode you could use is CH65 6QY - this will bring you to the back of the park.

By Bus

There is a bus stop directly outside the entrance to Whitby Park which is a two minute walk to our building in the middle of the park.
