Going to Old Trafford?

We provide the ultimate alternative for Match day travel to Old Trafford.  Make your way to the stadium for all Manchester United home games without the hassle of traffic and parking. The Princess Katherine takes you from opposite Spinningfields in Manchester’s city centre to within a short walk of Old Trafford. The journey takes just half an hour, enough time to relax with a cold beer or two from our fully stocked bar before you get to the game.

Departure time is 1 hour before kick off from Ralli Quay which is in front of the VAT building on Stanley Street. We’re close to the train stations (Salford CentralManchester Piccadilly) so you can leave your car at home and relax.

At the end of the match the Princess Katherine leaves from Trafford Wharf 20 minutes after the final whistle.  The boat will leave promptly to make sure we arrive back to make your onward journey.

The boarding point for departure sits within view of the Dockyard bar which is a great spot to relax before boarding.

All home game fixtures can be found here: Manchester United Fixtures
