Additional Information

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

  • On-street parking

    Like in most other cities, the residential areas of Salford have parking spaces that are reserved for resident permit holders, which makes it difficult to know where to park. There are also controlled parking zones, where a ticket must be purchased and displayed. On-street parking in Salford is usually limited to two hours.

  • Off-street parking

    Salford City Council operates a number of ‘pay & display’ car parks in Salford and its districts. Parking in Salford is free for the first thirty minutes in all council-run car parks, except for Salford Royal (east) car park, where £2 are charged for the first three hours. Charges apply at different times. Rates for parking in Salford are the same in all council-run car parks and don’t exceed £3.50 – again with the exception of Salford Royal (east), which is more expensive.


    There are also some privately owned car parks in Salford. New Bailey NCP Parking in Salford is a newly built multi-story car park with 620 parking spaces in Irwell Street. This car park is near Salford Central train station and the People’s History Museum.


    For visitors who are wondering where to park while shopping at Salford Shopping Centre, there are Rossall Way car park and Pendleton Way car park, which both offer three hours of free parking near this iconic shopping centre. There is also Market Way car park, which allows for up to two hours of free parking.

  • Public transport

    Visitors who are choosing public transport for their journey to Salford won’t need to worry about where to park. They will find the city and its surrounding area easy to navigate by bus. Metrolink also operates a tram line from Manchester city centre to Salford Quays and Eccles.

  • Disabled parking

    All car parks run by Salford City Council have free parking spaces for Blue Badge holders. New Bailey NCP parking has 34 disabled parking spaces.

  • Parking restrictions & event days

    Many roads near the river have had parking restrictions imposed on them to stop Manchester workers from using them as free parking spaces and prevent clogging up the roads. Many streets have double yellow lines or a two-hour ‘no-return’ restriction. As with most public car parks, there are height and weight restrictions in place for parking in Salford City Council car parks.

  • Overnight, weekends & bank holidays

    In most Salford City Council car parks, parking is free on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Charges for on-street parking in Salford also don’t apply on Bank Holidays.

  • Drop-off and pick-up

    There is a drop-off and pick-up area at the Lowry just in front of the pedestrian area next to the mall and the theatre. The train stations in Salford also have parking spaces for drop-off and pick-up, with a maximum stay of twenty minutes.

  • Nearby attractions
