Information about parking in Salford Quays
Salford Quays is the product of a successful urban regeneration project. It began as ManchesterDocks, opened by Queen Victoria in 1894 and, at their height, the third busiest port in Britain until containerisation put them out of business. Salford City Council bought the derelict land in 1983, and it is now an internal waterway with roads, bridges, a promenade, and water clean enough for fish to swim in! Housing, offices, a cinema and a hotel followed, and then the BBC became one of the media companies occupying the new 200 acres MediaCityUK site. Anyone considering a visit must ask the question; where to park at Salford Quays?

Some additional information about parking in salford quays, to cater to all your parking needs
On-street parking is permitted free of charge where there are no yellow lines. The majority of main roads have double yellow lines meaning that no on-street parking is permitted at any time, while many less major roads have a single yellow line which prohibits parking during certain hours, usually the main hours of work. The intention is to drive parking into off-street car parks.
There is a plentiful supply of off-street car parks throughout Salford Quays, and parking spaces should be found easily enough, even at peak periods. MediaCityUK, for example, has four car parks:
There are also a large number of park-and-ride car parks throughout Greater Manchester, from which Salford Quays can be reached on the Metrolink tram service.
Public transport throughout Greater Manchester has received a great deal of investment to reduce congestion on the roads. The Metrolink Tram Service has four zones and six lines, all of which pass through Cornbrook, Deansgate (where there is a mainline railway station) and St Peter’s Square, so that changing from one line to another is simple. This network extends from Altrincham and Manchester Airport at one extreme, to Bury and Rochdale at the other; Salford Quays and MediaCity are both stations to the north.
Also, there are bus services throughout the Greater Manchester area, and the Manchester Piccadilly mainline railway station, (reachable by Metrolink tram), is on the London to Glasgow mainline, as well as serving a wide range of other UK regions.
There are 80 designated accessible parking spaces at the Lowry Outlet car park, in which Blue Badge holders get four hours free (the standard charge would be £4), and many elsewhere in Salford Quays.
Salford City Council imposes waiting restrictions to reduce air pollution. These restrictions vary according to the time of day and the day of the week.
There is no reduction in regulationS or parking charges on bank holidays because this is an area in which the car population is likely to rise on bank holidays.
There are no restrictions on stopping, even on a double yellow line, for as long as it takes to drop off or pick up a passenger, but this does not extend to allowing drivers to wait for a passenger to arrive.
There’s shopping and restaurants in the Lowry Mall, two theatres, cafes and bars, and an attractive waterfront to explore, as well as a water sports centre.
