We took the bus from Stockport to Manchester, then got the 135 bus from Piccadilly Gardens to Cheerham Hill Road about five minutes away.
We crossed the road and walked down Boyle Street - on the right hand side is a working depot and at the very end of the street is the Museum of Transport, .
Dedicated volunteers run the Transport Museum and if it wasn't for the Manchester City Council, this museum wouldn't exist ai all: - if you need any information concerning the various modes of transport, they would be only to glad to help you.
There are two floors of all types of coaches, buses, trams and trolleybuses, of all shapes and sizes - you can even sit either upstairs or downstairs to see what it was like to travel on, you can try the bell as well.
On ther walls are posters of the time and on the tables there is the old conductors machines that were used in one of the Harry Potter films with events run by the museum and even a trip around Manchester on one of the buses - make sure you get the events brochure when you go to the Transport Museum.
The prices to go round are quite reasonable and the shop has models of various types of buses and coaches for you to buy if you want.
Ther also concessions for the disabled at the museum.
I would highly recommend a visit to the Transport Museum and the sraff canteen has been turned into a refreshment area with light snacks available.
