There's a car park just on the corner next to Travel Lodge Hotel, where the A56 meets Trinity Way and just across the road from the MEN Arena.. the car park is vast and there is also overflow car parks just across the road from the Travel Lodge...

If you're parking in that one (old Boddington's brewery) and you go early, park near to the exit as it's busy coming off at the end. Enjoy!

I tend to find some good parking places that are cheaper than your typical car park firms. People also advertise their driveways which can be quite useful for big occasions at venues/stadiums etc.

Can you not park somewhere a bit further out like Salford or Swinton and get the train into Victoria Station? The MEN Arena entrance is actually inside the train station. If this is a no-go try parking at the Printworks or the Arndale, both are a 5-10 min walk away. Either that or drive up from Trinity Way and use the privately run car parks there. There's always little dodgy blokes ushering people in them, I've never had an issue using them. Whatever you end up doing, be careful walking round that area at night, it's not too pleasant (Salford lass so I can say that!)

There are a few car parks on the main road near the arena but as you can imagine are so difficult to leave after anything on at the Arena. Dotted around on the other side from here are a few car parks that give you the advantage of a quick getaway, at the traffic lights you want New Bridge st / Trinity way, take a left at the lights (Renault garage on the right) on Blackfriars then the 4th left onto Gravel st ( under bridge) there a are several small car parks here.
