How to get to the Exhibition by bus from the train stations
The Bus stops are outside Wigan North Western station
Buses to the exhibition are 639 & 628
639 - this service runs at 25 minutes past the hour from 09.25 until 17.25pm from Wigan Bus Station, this will stop outside Wigan North Western Railway Station a few minutes later, this service runs along Robin Park Road, you will need to alight either outside Asda or The Red Robin Pub.
(this service does not run on a sunday)
628 - this service runs every 20 minutes from 9.05 am until 11.30pm, (on saturdays), on sundays this service only starts at 10.25am and runs hourly, From wigan bus station, this bus will stop outside Wigan North Western Station a few minutes earlier, this goes a sligthly different route than the 639, so you will need to alight the bus at The Red Robin pub.
Alternatively you can also walk from the stations, if you turn right (from Wigan Wallgate) or Left (Wigan North Western) and walk under bridge, go across the road,
(go outdoors should be on your left)
Cross over the main road dual carriageway at Staples, and continue south (the main road splits here into a sort of separate route dual carriageway, the northbound lane being shortest to walk), Continue over the canal bridge, under the railway bridge, over the river douglas bridge (all within about 100 yards) and walk into Asda car park. A surfaced & lit footpath to the right hand side of Asda between it and the river takes you straight to the venue, or walk to the left & round the back of Asda, head across the huge car park to the gap between the shops in the far right hand corner (300 yards), and you are there. About 20-30 mins walk from either station. Not worth the bus if your'e OK to walk.
Also please note that on Sundays the buses do not start running until around 11am
