Manchester China Town
Manchester was originally founded as a Roman garrison town by the general Agricola in 79AD. The modern city, however, really started to take shape in the 18th century with the invention of steam-powered spinning machines. Cotton manufacturing in Manchester really took off, and together with other achievements such as the building of the Manchester Ship Canal, put the city firmly on the map of industrial Britain. Many of the solid public buildings we see today in Manchester were built on the proceeds of the wealth that was generated then, and along with the modern shopping malls and cultural venues they help make the city the unique place it is. It’s now a thriving modern city, which makes parking in Manchester sometimes challenging, especially during the busy sales.
However, with NCP’s Manchester car park at China Town, it’s easier than ever to drive right into the heart of Manchester and enjoy a day’s shopping and sightseeing, without worrying about finding a convenient parking space.

You’ll find it on Mosley Street in the city centre, and the gallery is within easy walking distance of the NCP China Town Manchester car park.Simply park up and then spend a pleasant afternoon browsing the exhibitions and enjoying a coffee.
The Royal Exchange Parking
Theatre in Manchester’s city centre is a Grade II listed building that gives on average 350 performances each year, from a programme of nine professional productions. It’s a distinctive and much loved venue. Built in 1809 and originally a centre for cotton trading, it was saved from demolition in the 1970s and completely restored in the 1990s. It’s a great place to take in a show, and you can leave your car at the NCP’s China Town car park nearby and be in your seat in time for curtain up.
