Manchester has a world class, multimodal, integrated transport infrastructure which provides connectivity across the immediate conurbation and wider North West region and direct access to the rest of the UK and world.
Manchester Airport is the largest airport outside London flying to more than 225 destinations worldwide. Served by all major airlines, Manchester is truly internationally connected and Manchester Airport is the North’s only major international gateway.
With Manchester’s central geographical position in Great Britain, the city’s orbital and linear motorways provide direct and easy access to all UK cities.
Bus & Metrolink
The North West and the inner city centre are served by an extensive bus and tram network, with Metrolink now the largest tram system in the UK.
Manchester offers fast and regular connections to surrounding conurbations and all major UK destinations, with high-speed rail services to London Euston, Birmingham, Liverpool and Edinburgh and a selection of cross country services.
This new rail link will boost economic growth and further open up commercial opportunities for businesses in the North, with journey times from Manchester to London reduced to one hour. There are also plans for a multi-billion pound regeneration project in the city, with the creation of a ‘new look’ Piccadilly Train Station; a ‘gateway quarter’ modelled on Amsterdam and New York.
