Using Your Visit Manchester Pass

You can begin using your Visit Manchester Pass as soon as you have purchased and activated it. Until activated, passes are valid for one year from the purchase date. Passes can be activated at any time during the period of 12 months starting from the date of purchase.

To access your pass, follow the link in the sales email you receive. Here you will be able to select the date that you would like to start using your pass and activate it. You will need to activate your pass before you can use it. Once your Visit Manchester Pass is activated it is valid for consecutive days (not 24-hour periods) from the date you select.

To gain free admission, simply show your pass QR code at the admission desk or payment point for each attraction. The Visit Manchester Pass permits one visit per attraction. 

Some of the attractions will allow you to walk in on the day, but some need to be booked in advance. Make sure you check the pass booking app before travelling to see which attractions require pre-booking and for instructions on how to book.
