Information about parking near G-MEX

The G-Mex hasn’t been called by that name for several years, but that is still how it is referred to by people who knew it by that name. Since 2007, it’s been called the Manchester Central Convention Complex, or simply “the Manchester Central.” It still looks from outside as the railway station it once was, since the curved roof, when it was built, was the second largest railway station roof in the UK, but it is now (after almost ninety years as a station), an exhibition centre. Before Manchester’s MEN Arena was built, (MEN stands for the Manchester Evening News newspaper company), it was also Manchester’s premier location for popular music concerts. The crowds who still descend on it, combined with the fact that Manchester is a city which never sleeps, day or night, raises the question; where to park near the G-Mex?

  • On-street parking

    All the above are subject to Zone 2 regulations; operative 08:00 to 20:00 hours, seven days a week, maximum stay two hours, no return within one hour, £1.45 for 30 minutes, rising to £5.80 for two hours.

  • Public transport

    Manchester’s public transport system is dominated by the Metrolink tram. The Centre is in Zone 1, and the nearest station is in Deansgate or St Peter’s Square, and the whole city is connected through the tram to towns as far afield as Eccles, Altrincham and Rochdale, as well as to Manchester Airport.


    Deansgate Station, which is nearby, and Manchester Piccadilly station which is a 20-minute walk away, provide mainline rail links to the whole country, as well as to suburbs.

  • Disabled parking

    On-street pay-and-display parking is free to Blue Badge holders.

  • Parking restrictions & event days

    Manchester City Council operates different parking restrictions in different parts of the city, but the city centre, where the G-Mex is located, is a Controlled Parking Zone with restrictions operating from 08:00 am to 20:00 pm, seven days a week.

  • Overnight, weekends & bank holidays

    Charges and restrictions are waived only on Christmas Day.

  • Drop-off and pick-up

    Passengers can be set down and picked up anywhere, including on single yellow lines, (but not double, except for Blue Badge holders), provided there is no loading restriction.

  • Nearby attractions

    Apart from two Premier League football teams and a first-class county cricket team, Manchester has an astonishing array of art galleries and museums. Aficionados of the Coronation Street TV soap opera can tour the sets. And there is nothing you could want to eat or drink which you won’t find here.
