Get To Know Salford Quays
Salford Quays is an area of Salford, Greater Manchester. Previously the site of Manchester Docks, it became one of the first and largest urban regeneration projects in the United Kingdom following the closure of the dockyards in 1982. Today, Salford Quays is vibrant and alive with a range of offices, leisure, residential and landmark office buildings including MediaCityUK, which is the new home for both the BBC and ITV.
Manchester city centre is a 7 minute journey by Metrolink and 10 minute drive away, making office space here incredibly accessible. The M602 motorway is only a 2 minute drive away which leads to the M60 and in turn the North West’s comprehensive motorway network.
Bus services provide links to Salford Quays for office staff, either running near The Quays itself or Trafford Park, within easy reach via the new MediaCityUK footbridge across the Manchester Ship Canal. Switching between buses and Metrolink trams is easy in Manchester city centre at Piccadilly Gardens or Shudehill transport interchanges. It’s easy to connect with buses to The Quays at Salford Shopping Centre and there are other convenient bus and tram interchanges at Bury, Altrincham and Eccles.
Metrolink trams are a quick and easy way to reach offices in MediaCityUK and Salford Quays. The area is served by the dedicated MediaCityUK stop and Harbour City, Broadway, Exchange Quay and other stops on the Eccles line. You can connect from other Metrolink lines at Cornbrook.
Trams run every 12 minutes between Cornbrook and MediaCityUK stops from 7.15am to 8pm, Monday to Fridays, and 9.30am to 6pm on Saturdays. The Eccles line service also stops at Broadway and Harbour City during these times. Outside these times, the Eccles line trams call at the MediaCityUK stop, during normal tram operating times. When the shuttle is running, this means that there is a 6 minute service between Cornbrook and Harbour City. For information about Metrolink services visit www.metrolink.co.uk
Manchester International Airport is a 15 minute drive away from Salford Quays.
In 2003, Salford Quays was the venue for the first International Triathlon Union World Cup event to be held in the UK.
