Getting to The Quays and MediaCity
The MediaCity Campus is at the heart of six global BBC departments and a mass of independent creative, digital and media organisations. It is a short walk to the Lowry theatre and gallery, Imperial War Museum North and the Manchester United football ground. There are many shops, bars, and restaurants nearby.
By Metrolink tram
Metrolink trams are a quick and easy way to reach MediaCity and The Quays. The area is served by the dedicated MediaCity stop and Harbour City, Broadway and other stops on the Eccles line. You can connect from other Metrolink lines at Cornbrook.
Trams run every 12 minutes between Cornbrook and MediaCity stops from 07:15 to 20:00, Monday to Fridays, and 09:30 to 18:00 on Saturdays. The Eccles line service also stops at Broadway and Harbour City during these times. Outside these times, the Eccles line trams call at the MediaCity stop, during normal tram operating times. When the shuttle is running, this means that there is a 6 minute service between Cornbrook and Harbour City.
Bus services provide links to The Quays, either running near The Quays itself or Trafford Park, within easy reach via the new MediaCity footbridge across the Manchester Ship Canal. Switching between buses and Metrolink trams is easy in Manchester city centre at Piccadilly Gardens and Shudehill transport interchanges.
It’s easy to connect with buses to The Quays at Salford Shopping Centre and there are other convenient bus and tram interchanges at Bury, Altrincham and Eccles.
If you travel to Manchester city centre by train it’s easy to connect with Metrolink trams at either Piccadilly or Victoria train stations. Both stations have Metrolink stops, so you won’t have to go outdoors when you make the connection.
Many trains also call at Salford Crescent station and it’s easy to connect to The Quays by bus from there.
