Catch a tram from Piccadilly towards Eccles or MediaCityUK. Get off at Exchange Quay and the hotel is about 1 minutes walk.

Hi,

Catch an Eccles, or Media City tram from Piccadilly Station to The Salford Quays stop, your hotel is opposite the tram stop.

To get to Heaton Park, catch one of those trams back towards the city centre, get off at Cornbrook and change to a Bury Tram. That tram will take you to The Heaton Park Stop.

You will not be able to catch a tram from The Heaton Park stop after the concert for your return journey, I believe it will be closed for safety reasons.

If you intend to use The Metrolink after the concert, Bowker Vale and Prestwich are the nearest stops to the park.

A £4.50 Metrolink Saver ticket will cover your tram fares for that day.

Good luck!

Yes that is far.......I wouldn't recommend that after being on your feet all day! Follow the masses to bowker vale tram stop or failing that get a taxi back to the city centre and then hop on a tram

About four or five miles back to the city centre.

Personally, to avoid the crowds, I'd head up Bury Old road towards Whitefield and get a tram at Besses back into town...

they are also running shuttle buses from manchester up to heaton park and back,,you can buy tickets in city centre on the day..for a return journy or you can buy a single ticket back at heaton park for the journey into machester after the gig maybe that gives you a different option to get to heaton park and back
