When you visit Manchester, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Manchester city centre is where it all happens – and for the most part it is. However, visitors to Manchester shouldn’t ignore what surrounding areas of Manchester have to offer.
If you’re visiting Manchester, you should definitely check out Trafford. This vast area of Greater Manchester is an urban and industrial must-see and there’s loads on offer for those who want to explore.
From vast warehouses hosting overnight raves to mega shopping centres, theatres to medieval buildings, and of course Old Trafford’s famous football and cricket grounds, Trafford is smack bang in the centre of everything that’s happening in Manchester. With excellent routes and motorway accessibility, the best way of getting around Trafford and Greater Manchester is by car, but Trafford is also serviced by busy bus routes and Manchester’s own Metrolink. Just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from the M62 to Liverpool, the M602 to Salford, The M60 Manchester ring road, the M56 to Cheshire and the M61 to Leeds, Trafford is easy to get to, and the rest of the North West is also on the doorstep of any North West explorer.
Everyone loves Cornflakes right? Well Trafford is home to the nation’s favourite cereal – Kellogs Cornflakes. We’re not suggesting that you’re enough of a geek to want to visit the factory itself, but we’d definitely recommend a drive-by with your window down – the smell of toasting flakes is just heavenly!
Just 3 minutes’ drive away from Kellogs is the Trafford Centre (intu Trafford Centre, Manchester, M17 8AA ), hands down the place to shop outside Manchester city centre. From high-end brands such as Harvey Nichols’ pop up Christmas shop and Selfridges to more affordable labels, the Trafford Centre really does have something for every budget. And it’s not just shopping that’s available here either! The Trafford Centre has a New Orleans themed restaurant area with every taste catered for, from fast food and American diners, to Italian cafes and chic cocktail bars to oriental buffet-style eateries and tapas restaurants. With a huge cinema and laser quest, the Trafford Centre is also a great place to take the kids, especially when Manchester does what it does best – rain!
Over the road from the Trafford centre is Barton Square – the go-to place for those looking to bedeck their homes with all manner of finery. The large, warehouse style units at Barton Square, Trafford are home to retailers such as Next HOME, HomeSense and M&S, and it’s a great destination to browse and pick up a bargain. For the kids there’s also a sea life centre and Legoland too – the ideal reward for small stroppy shoppers!
Just seconds away from the Trafford Centre lies EventCity (Phoenix Way, Off Barton Dock Road, TRAFFORDCITY, Manchester, M17 8AS [email protected] / 0161 870 9800) – a sprawling space that’s home to large-scale annual events such as The Ideal Home Show and The National Wedding Show as well as fun exhibitions such as Tattoo Tea Party and Circus Extreme.
If you need to get your head down for a rest after all that action, Trafford hotels offer a good night’s sleep for visitors to Manchester. With Trafford hotel prices somewhat lower than Manchester city centre hotels, a hotel in Trafford is also a great option for those wanting to stay just out of the hustle and bustle of Manchester city centre, while still being only 10 minutes away from the action.
