Media City is easily accessible by tram, bike, car and human, but however you travel remember you won’t end the trail where you started!
To start the trail, you’ll want to head for:
Media City Piazza,
Media City has a dedicated tram stop on the Eccles Line, which runs from Manchester City Centre to Eccles via Salford Quays. Trams run every 12 minutes, and pass through the Cornbrook Metrolink interchange for easy access to and from Altrincham, Didsbury and Manchester Airport.
There’s also the Imperial War Museum tram stop on the Trafford Park extension. Stopping right outside the Imperial War Museum it’s just a 5 minute walk to the Media City Piazza.
The number 50 bus route from East Didsbury to The Lowry stops at MediaCity, running from South Manchester, through Manchester City Centre, before taking in Salford Crescent, Chapel Street, and Langworthy Road.
MediaCity is easy to reach on bike with cycle routes making use of the Manchester Ship Canal, River Irwell and Bridgewater Canal for traffic-free journeys.
You can find dedicated cycle maps on the Media City BUG.
You can drive, but remember the trail starts at Media City but finishes about 2.5 miles away at The Kings Arms so you’ll have to come back for your car.
There’s even EV charging facilities!
