Directions for your taxi from Manchester Airport
Manchester Airport (MAN) is the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom, serving over 199 destinations worldwide. The airport is located 14.5 km away from Manchester city centre, so taking a Manchester Airport taxi shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes in light traffic.
To begin your journey, your driver will get on Airport Spur/A555 and head south. Then, at the roundabout, they will take the 3rd exit to the M60. You will then follow signs for Manchester/Stockport/M60/Sheffield/M67/M56/Leeds/M62/Bolton/M61 before merging onto the M56. After turning right onto Pkwy/A5103, your driver will then take a left onto Princess Rd/A5103. After about 1 mile, your driver will take the second exit at the roundabout onto Ring Rd/A57(M)/A635 ramp to Ashton-under-Lyne/Sheffield/Piccadilly. After following the signs for the A6, your driver will make their way into the city centre of Manchester.
Finding a good place to stay in the city centre can be challenging, so we checked the top traveller-ranked hotels in Manchester’s city centre to make things a little easier. Try Stock Exchange Hotel for a little luxury and Wilde Aparthotels By Staycity for a budget-friendly option.
