Additional Information

Some additional information about parking in men arena, to cater to all your parking needs

  • On-street parking

    Manchester’s on-street parking is currently split into four zones. Manchester Arena falls within Zone 2. Parking charges apply to every day of the week from 8 am to 8 pm, and maximum parking time is only 2 hours. The cost is on a sliding scale, but for the maximum period of 2 hours, you will pay £5.80.

  • Off-street parking

    There is an NPC off-street car park available behind the station at the Manchester Arena with 900 spaces. However, pricing for event days starts at £12.50.

  • Public transport

    Manchester has a free city-centre bus service which stops within walking distance of Manchester Arena. Various other bus routes serve the area around the station.


    Manchester Victoria Station is right on the doorstep of the arena, providing easy transport to the venue.  Victoria Station has local and regional lines as well as tram lines.

  • Disabled parking

    Parking restriction times and fees for Zone 2 do not apply to Blue Badge Holders, who have virtually unrestricted parking rights in the city except on yellow lines. There are also approximately 58 disabled bays available on the ground floor of the NCP car park, although these are not free.

  • Parking restrictions & event days

    Zone 2 on-street parking restrictions apply to the immediate Manchester Arena area (e.g. maximum 2-hour stay). However, the Arena sits on the very edge of the restricted zone, and across the ring road, no zones are applicable. Certain charges and restrictions may still apply, and in particular, event days may see a change in parking restrictions which may be difficult to manage if you do not know the area.


  • Overnight, weekends & bank holidays

    Parking within the restricted zone is free on a bank holiday, which may increase demand for spaces and make it harder to park.

  • Drop-off and pick-up

    During large events at the arena, it is likely that some routes nearby will be diverted. Nevertheless, the usual drop-off and pick-up point for Manchester Arena is at the Hunts Bank entrance. This area becomes busy, so it’s wise for drivers and passengers to stay in contact with each other by phone at pick-up time.

  • Nearby attractions

    When travelling to Manchester Arena for a concert or event, many people make a day of their trip and see some of the many historical sights the city has to offer.


    The Shambles Square is a lovely historical area of Manchester, with numerous restaurants and pubs, perfect for a meet up with friends before heading to a show or event at the Arena. With buildings set in a traditional Tudor style, there are 4 main pubs in the square for you to pay a visit to.


    The Manchester Distillery is fast becoming a local hot spot in the area, thanks in part to the increase in popularity of gin. You can take a tour of the distillery and learn how flavours in gin are concocted and then create your own bottle of gin. Definitely worth a visit!
