Arriving at the venue

Once you arrive at Manchester Arena there are several routes into the building itself. Please see below for further information. 

Arriving at the venue

We would recommend using either the City Room or Hunts Bank entrance for the easiest access into the arena. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get into the building and find your seats as many shows are extremely busy. Manchester Arena opening times vary depending on the event and are subject to change. Please check the Manchester Arena events page for more information on specific show timings. 

Getting from the NCP car park to the City Room entrance and Box Office.

Follow directions from the car park to the Box Office entrance and you will reach a set of doors with a small flight of stairs on the other side, leading to the Arena entrance. There is also a lift to the right hand side of the doors that takes you up one level. 

Getting from Victoria Station to City Room entrance & Box Office 

Take the lift located to the right hand side of the stairs within Victoria station. The lift to the bridge level connects Victoria Station to the City Rooms entrance at the Arena. Maximum distance from Victoria Station to entrance is 180 metres.
