We highly recommend use of the free app – What3words which can be downloaded to your mobile device ahead of the day, to assist with locating the centre entrance on the day much more precisely than Google Maps or using SatNavs alone. What3words works alongside Waze to help avoid traffic delays also. What3words is available as a free app for iOS and Android or view online without download using the direct what3words links to the centre location below.

To locate the centre on what3words search: orders.rams.sorry or visit– this will bring you to our entrance door which is a black wooden door surrounded by stone pillars and black metal railings either side of the door. We are located next door to the Manchester Estate Agents.

We highly recommend travelling by public transport.

No parking is available at the centre due to the city location. Two car parks (pay and display) can be found a short walk away on Port Street, located on what3words using chill.burn.pays or click

Due to the central location, our Manchester training centre is one of our most popular academies for our students and offers a vast range of courses, including the specialized Electrical Facials and Microdermabrasion courses.

Our diploma and VTCT beauty, holistic, nail and make-up courses in Manchester are run at our well-equipped beauty school located on Lever Street. It is located on the first floor of a three-story multi-occupancy building, comprised of a comfortable office and two spacious training rooms, including a well-lit make-up studio, a galley kitchen to be used on lunch breaks and a secure store-room. The academy has been stylishly renovated into a well-planned, modern and functional-purpose area with both open plan rooms and a secure office room. The academy forms part of a terrace of various other premises which have been renovated to be in form with the original character of the building, including sash windows and ornate frontage.

The centre is easily located and accessible via public transport, being only a few minutes’ walk from the nearest station. The location is ideal for transport links, being so close to Piccadilly train station and having links to the tram and bus services. Although we do not have our own private parking at the centre, there are car parks only minutes away from the training centre.
