A centre in every sense
Albert Square is the geographical, political and social centre of Manchester. The city’s people know it, interact with it and enjoy it, and the city’s transport flows to it.
A colourful city quarter
The Square is known as a destination in itself, revolving around culture and community. Jumping between its roles as an inviting public space and a vibrant events venue, it’s always a good place to be. Bordered by shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, it’s a lively and self-contained city quarter.
The Second City Crossing (2CC) provides a new Metrolink tram route through the city centre, stopping at St Peter’s Square, just minutes from The Albert Estate. This dynamic development in infrastructure supports the area’s comprehensive bus services and provides brilliant connections – city-wide and beyond.
