Plan your visit to Manchester

As the UK’s second biggest city, Manchester is aptly equipped for getting around. Handy because there are so many corners of town to discover - from the bohemian Northern Quarter to shiny Salford Quays, from historic Castlefield to the cobbles of Canal Street. See our guide to all the different areas, how to get between them and how to reach town from the airport. 

Getting to Manchester from the airport

If you’re flying into Manchester airport, you’ll want to get to the city and check into your Premier Inn pronto! See our guide to airport taxis, trains and trams. Or, if you’re arriving late at night – or it’s an early flight back home – why not stay at one of our airport hotels

Getting around

Manchester has a brilliant choice of public transport, from Metroshuttle bus to Metrolink tram, plus a handy bike hire scheme at Oxford Road Station. 

Where to stay
