There’s a combined railway and bus station on site, which means you can easily travel to Manchester (the train takes around 20 minutes, and the bus takes around half an hour) and other major cities around the country. The airport buses to the city leave every half hour, and the trains leave every ten minutes. If you’d prefer to take a taxi, the journey will take just under half an hour. 

Public Transport

Manchester is often dubbed “Britain’s second city”, so it’s not surprising that its public transport network is extensive and efficient. As well as plenty of buses and trains, there’s the superb tram system (Metrolink). For unlimited travel inside the city, you can buy a Day Saver ticket on board. 

If you need to head south from Manchester, frequent trains to London leave from Manchester Piccadilly, the city’s largest railway station. 


It’s easy enough to hail a black cab in Manchester. Remember, if the taxi sign is lit, that means the cab is free. If you don’t have cash handy, be sure to check with the driver before you set off that you can pay with card.
