Manchester International Airport is linked with 175 world-wide destinations by 95 airlines. It is just 10 miles (16km) south of the city centre.

There is a direct train service linking the airport to Piccadilly Station with six trains per hour and a limited overnight service. Journey time is 20 minutes and the current fare is £2.70 one way.

There is a regular bus service, numbers 43, 44 and 105 between Manchester Piccadilly Bus Station and the Airport. The approximate time is 55 minutes. Please ring 0161 228 7811 for timetable details.


Will there be any transport organised by ALT from the station or airport to the University of Manchester?

Manchester has good public transport, so we will not be providing this service.


Are there any parking facilities?

The multi-storey car-park on Charles Street, next to the Weston building provides secured parking on the top two floors L and M and the charge is £8 for 10 hours and £10 for 24 hours.

Car Park Times:

  • Secured Area closed and alarmed between 2000-0800
  • Other areas open between 0800 and 2200 daily

For added security, it is recommended that you try to park on the top two floors, as these are isolated by electric shutters at 2000 each night.


Are there parking facilities for disabled delegates?

Reserved parking can be made available next to the University Security Lodge located on Sackville Street. To use these facilities, please report to the Lodge and you will be directed to a parking slot. Please note that you will still need to display your orange badge.

For residential disabled delegates, it may be possible to provide parking outside of the hall of residence. Please contact ALT by email if you would like further guidance.
