Manchester River Cruises

Manchester River Cruises

Manchester’s waterways have always been part of the heartbeat of its industry; from the first attempts at creating navigable waterways in the 1700’s to the colossal epic of Victorian engineering that is the Manchester Ship Canal.

Manchester River Cruises will take you along these historical waterways, through the changing landscape of the city centre along the river Irwell and onto the Manchester Ship Canal.

Every year, thousands come from all over the world to travel on this tour, from our city centre to the former docklands at Salford Quays.

How to get there:

Manchester River Cruises board at two locations, in Manchester city centre at Ralli Quay and at Salford Quays.

To board at Ralli Quay, take the Metrolink to St Peter’s Square and walk 10 minutes north-west, along John Dalton Street and Bridge Street, towards the Spinningfields development. The Quay is on the River Irwell, across from the vibrant Spinningfields.

To board at Salford Quays, take the Metrolink to MediaCityUK and after leaving the tram stop you will need to cross over a road bridge and walk by The Lowry Theatre. Manchester River Cruises board just under the Lowry footbridge.
