Parking in Salford

Salford is a thriving city, full of unique identity and charm. It’s popular with families, and is also home to a large Jewish community who have been an important cultural influence in Salford for generations. It ranges from a busy urban area in the west, where it borders with the larger Manchester conurbation, to a more rural, village-style layout towards the west. In the centre of Salford you’ll find good on-road parking, but during the week spaces can be difficult to find, and many are reserved for residents with permits only.

We have Salford car parks located near the River Irwell, conveniently close to the train station and only a short walk from Manchester city centre. It's a up and coming area of town with many bars, restaurants and businesses, so pre-book today to guarantee a space.

Points of interest

Canals are a key part of Salford’s industrial past, and the Manchester Ship Canal runs through the heart of the city. It has been brought back to life and is now going through a bit of a renaissance, this time as a highway for pleasure boats rather than barges. The Barton Swing Aqueduct, which carries the Bridgewater Canal over the top of the Manchester Ship Canal, is still operational and a key feature on the landscape, a reminder of Salford’s Victorian past. Today, the city is the home of broadcasting, media and visual entertainment, with the ultra-modern MediaCityUK now one of the city’s largest employers. Our parking in Salford is only a short walk from the top attractions and points of interest in this thiriving city.

Attraction & event parking in Salford


Salford Cathedral

Salford’s spiritual centre is quite a recent addition, built between 1844 and 1848. It’s very much a cathedral for and of the people, with local philanthropists and supporters raising the money not just for its foundation and development, but for substantial repairs when it suffered major damage in a storm in 1881. It’s a perfect spot for a little quiet contemplation, as well as a fascinating insight into local life. Park at the New Bailey car park and you’re only a few minutes’ walk away from the cathedral.​


Salford Central Station

Salford is home to thousands of commuters who travel into Manchester every day. It’s also a good starting point for heading out into the surrounding countryside to discover the beauties of the Peak District National Park and the Pennine Moors. Car parking in Salford train station is limited, so take advantage of pre-bookable spaces and season tickets at the nearby New Bailey car park.​


People’s History Museum

Housed in a former hydraulic pumping station in the heart of Salford, the People’s History Museum charts the lives of ordinary working people in the UK over the last 200 years. For anyone interested in social history, it’s a museum that’s filled with fascinating insights into how our ancestors lived, worked and spent their leisure time. Find a car parking space at New Bailey car park and spend the day learning about trade unionism, women’s suffrage, the co-operative movement, and even the origins of the ‘beautiful game’ and Salford’s place in the history of football
