The volunteer-run Pankhurst Centre museum is open to visitors on Thursdays from 10am-4pm, and on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 1-4pm. All are welcome.
Discover the extraordinary story of the Pankhurst family and the suffragette campaign for votes for women from the place it all began. Sit in the parlour where the first meeting of the suffragettes took place and explore our crowd-funded suffragette garden. Then why not discuss your own campaign over a cuppa and cake? There's lots of exciting events happening at the Pankhurst Centre in the coming months. For details of upcoming events, please visit our What's On page.
We will be celebrating Emmeline Pankhurst's 161st birthday with a party at the Pankhurst Centre on the 14th July. This event is now sold out, and - to be fair to those who have reserved a ticket - we ask that anyone who has not reserved a ticket for the party please plans their visit for another day.

By Train: Oxford Road Station and Piccadilly Train Station are about a 30 minute walk from the Pankhurst Centre.
By Car: Parking is for blue badge holders only. There is a NCP / Manchester Royal Infirmary car park on Grafton Street, a short walk away. **Please note that from June 2019, access to the car park will be via Oxford Road and Nelson Street and not Grafton Street as usual. This is to allow for building works for a new helipad at Manchester Royal Infirmary**
The Pankhurst Centre is not as accessible as we would like it to be. Wheelchair users are advised to call 0161 273 5673 in advance of their visit. We're working hard to ensure that the Centre will be accessible to everybody in the future.
