Manchester Arena Introduction

From uplifting rock ballads to the crack of boxing punches, the swirl of ice skaters to the smack-down of wrestlers, there are countless sounds that have filled the colossal auditoriums of Manchester Arena since it was first opened to events in 1995. With a capacity of 21,000 and a line-up of artists that ranges from comedians to guitar strummers to distortion-heavy metal groups throughout the year, it's hardly a surprise that it's now one of the busiest venues in the whole UK. Manchester Arena hotels offer a place to stay just a stone's throw from the box office.

Manchester Arena Hotels

Fancy a contemporary serviced apartment with plush beds and a designer kitchen? No problem. Prefer something easier on the wallet, perhaps an aparthotel with space for the whole troop? That's doable, too. There are all sorts of places to stay peppering the area around Manchester Arena. To get the best rates in them all, you'll likely need to avoid the popular events season around Christmas and New Year, when the cost of accommodation in the city can spike. The summer also tends to be costly, while spring and autumn herald some of the top deals of the year.

Where to stay near Manchester Arena

You'll find a smattering of convenient apartments and flat rentals dotting the streets around Victoria Station. Those Manchester Arena hotels are a great choice if you just want a simple, wallet-friendly room for a night, close to the venue and close to regional transportation links. For a more immersive taste of Manchester, you could look to the redbrick facades of the Northern Quarter. This erstwhile industrial area has now been transformed into a patchwork of cool indie bars and boutique hotels. Other stays dot the blocks of Chinatown, between soy-scented Canton kitchens and more great nightclubs.

Things to see near Manchester Arena

Just a short walk from the box office of Manchester Arena will take you to the enthralling Northern Quarter of the city. Awash with boho bars and free-trade coffeeshops, it's the swinging musical hub of town – stay after sundown to shindig the night away to Britpop and indie. For something totally different, the National Football Museum is just across the road. Signed shirts, legendary trophies and classic photographs of the golden game await within. For shoppers, there's Cross Street and the retail arcades of Manchester's heart a little to the south.

How to get to Manchester Arena

The Manchester Metrolink network makes a convenient stop right outside the attraction at Victoria Station. That makes it really easy to hop to and from your Manchester Arena hotels and the other parts of the big Northern city. The free Metroshuttle service is also useful for those eager to go between other major stations – notably Manchester Piccadilly – and the venue. Those coming in by car just need to leave the M62 at junction 17. That gets you within 3 miles of where you want to be.
