Billy Joel Concert

Going to see Billy Joel at Old Trafford and have found Hotel rates to be ridiculous for an overnight stay. Intend to take car and park instead so will probably spend the day in Manchester before the concert. Will be coming into Manchester on the M62. Best options for Park and ride please that will be accessible after the concert.

The obvious one is Ladywell park and ride, it's two minutes from Junction 2 on The M602, it's well signposted. It's on The Eccles tram line, the trams run to Salford Quays, and on to the city centre. Old Trafford is short walk from The Quays. The park and ride postcode is M50 1AW.

An all day Metrolink travelcard would cost £5.40, you purchase them at the machine on the platforms.

Thanks for the advice greatly appreciated. Can you pre book the parking or is it first come first served ?

Come to think of it, if there is more than one going to the show, you would be better parking in The Lowry multistorey car park on Salford Quays. You would be near to The MediaCity Metrolink tram stop, and a short walk from Old Trafford.

The price is £1.00 an hour up to 12 hours, then £16.00 for 24 hours. You would need to get there early to get a place.

Lowry car park is a good option. Just to clarify the car park charges are slightly different to those mentioned. 6-12 hours parking costs £12. Details here http://www.lowryoutlet.co.uk/car-parking/
