Places to park in Manchester

Driving your hire car in Manchester won’t be too difficult, but it can be busy with traffic and get quite congested, particularly the city centre which has some one-way streets to navigate. Driving into an unfamiliar city can be daunting, especially knowing where to park once you are there.

Within the Manchester area, there are several different parking options to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for multi-storey car parks or street parking, you’ll find a range of options that’ll suit you. Free parking is limited, but you might find some areas dotted throughout the city. Usually, hot spots will be busy at peak times so, if you are looking to keep parking expenses low, it is best to do your research if you can.

If you are looking for central parking to explore the city centre, you’ll find over 600 parking spaces at a multi-storey car park on Lower Mosley Street. You can leave your hire car there for up to 24 hours if you are planning a big city adventure. There will be an hourly charge to park your rental car in this carpark.
