  • How do I get from Manchester Piccadilly Station to The Point, Old Trafford Lancashire Cricket Grounds?
    For those travelling in my train, Manchester Piccadilly station is centre hub for Avanti West Coast, Northern, TransPennine Express, CrossCountry and Transport for Wales trains. Once in the station and through the barriers you need to follow the signs towards the Metrolink line which is located down the escalators, below the station. To get to Old Trafford Tram stop, you will need to purchase a ticket to cover zone 1 & 2 for travel, Ticket can be purchased via the machines on the platform, then get on the tram going to Altrincham. You will need to embark off the tram at Old Trafford Tram Stop. The estimated journey from Piccadilly platform to Old Trafford is approximately 17 Minutes, Trams run every 10 minutes all day with the first departing Piccadilly at 05:54 and the last departing Old Trafford at 23:54. Once at Old Trafford Stop, you need to cross over the tracks using the pedestrian crossing and follow the footpath up past the side of the Emirates Cricket Stadium for 5 minutes until you reach the entrance to the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel. Using their doors, please enter then immediately turn right and go out of the doors into the stadium car park. From here you will need to continue to walk around the side of the stadium where you will then see Solace branded signage directing you to The Point and to our registration area.
