Fan Boy Three is located in the heart of Central Manchester a few minutes walk away from both Manchester Picadilly Train Station, the Tram and Bus stops at Picadilly Gardens and the Coach Station situated on Chorlton Street. It's about a ten minute walk from Victoria Train Station, situated on the far side of the world famous Arndale Centre.
Since May 26th Fan Boy three has moved to the all new, all different Fan Boy Three megastore and Organised Play Arena at 25 Hilton St, a stones throw from the old store. We are now on Stevenson Square which is a minute further along Newton Street.

PLANES: to Manchester Airport, then take the train to Manchester Picadilly
CARS: drive into central Manchester by the most expedient route; we like the A664 (the Trunk Road of the Beast's Little Brother) ourselves. Head around towards the Northern Quarter on the A6 Ring Road, then follow signs for Picadilly Station and you should be driving in on Newton Street. We like the Dale Street Parking (turn left when you see the shop) as it's only £4.50 for all day, but there's plenty of on street parking off Newton Street for a casual drive by shopping experience.
