To Broadhurst Park by Tram

Metrolink Tram

With a journey time of 11 minutes from Manchester Victoria and a frequency of 12 minutes, the tram is a quick and easy option to get to Broadhurst Park. The nearest stop to the ground is Newton Heath & Moston which is just under a mile from the ground. Due to the building of a brand new Metrolink route through Manchester city centre - the Second City Crossing (2CC) and the redevelopment of the St Peter's Square stop, Newton Heath & Moston now forms part of a Ashton-under-lyne - Rochdale line. The redevelopment work is scheduled for completion by late 2016.
