Travelling by road from the South: Leave the M6 at Junction 32 (Broughton, Preston), the junction incorporates the M6 and M55 motorways and the A6 trunk road. Care should be taken to filter left following the 'A6 Garstang' lane indicators. On joining the A6 , follow the 'Garstang' signs for 3¾ miles to a large sign on the left hand side of the road naming 'Myerscough College', and turn left along St Michaels Road. The College is ¾ mile along this road and involves a right turn half way through an S bend.

Travelling by road from the North: Leave the M6 at Junction 33 (Hampson Green). On joining the A6 travel south following 'Preston' signs for about 9 miles to a large sign on the left hand side of the road, naming 'Myerscough College', and turn right into St Michaels Road. The college is ¾ miles along this road on the right, just after a sharp left turn.

Travelling by air:
Liverpool Airport to Myerscough College (approx. 60 miles).
Manchester Airport to Myerscough College (approx. 50 miles).

Note there is no train station at Liverpool therefore car hire would be necessary. There is a train station at Manchester.
