Macclesfield is located in Cheshire, on the edge of the Peak District, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are ideally situated within easy reach of the main centres in the North West of England (Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, Sheffield), as well as the Midlands (Birmingham) and London and the south east.

Macclesfield is situated on the main rail line between London and Manchester meaning that London is less than 2 hours journey time away and Manchester only 20 minutes. The international airports in both cities are easily accessible as a consequence so the college is within easy reach for students coming from all over the world.

The College is within reach of some of the most interesting and beautiful sights that the UK has to offer
