Please allow plenty of time for your journey and parking. Please note discounted parking applies to concerts only and not to private events at the Hall.
There are a limited number of complimentary disabled parking spaces for blue badge holders at NCP Manchester Central (formerly G-Mex), allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Spaces are free of charge but a ticket must be booked through the Box Office with your concert tickets. Please park in one of the designated disabled parking bays and display your blue badge. This arrangement is for evening concerts only and is not available to those attending daytime or private events at the Hall.
Additional on-street parking
A wheelchair drop off point is located on Lower Mosley Street outside the Hall. We must stress, however, that this is not a parking space, even for blue badge holders. Double yellow lines at the rear of The Bridgewater Hall on Great Bridgewater Street allow parking for blue badge holders except during the hours of 6.00am–8.00am and 4.00pm–6.00pm.
