one night


I am planning to take my 16-year-old son to visit Old Trafford. We will get the Megabus from Victoria (London) to Chorlton St. We will stay at Ibis Portland St. I'd like to know:

Should we go direct from Chorton St to the stadium, is there a bus, or should we take a taxi?

How far is Chorton St. to the hotel?

Last but not least, is there a bar/pub where I can take my son for some live music, preferably near the hotel?

Thanks a lot

Short walk to Ibis from Chorlton St

I would take the tram.

You can get the tram just behind Ibis at St Peters square. The tram runs to either Altringham (Old Trafford Cricket Ground or Eccles (Exchange Quay) and its a 5 min walk from either. They are quite frequent and its a case of turn up and go. The return journey may involve a little queueing but never for too long.


Pubs with live music? Might struggle with a 16year old. Hopefully another poster can help you help
