Access in and out of Trafford is easy via the M60 and M6 motorways, the extensive rail network and Manchester Airport which is just a short drive away. Getting around Trafford is also quick and effortless thanks to the Metrolink system.

World-renowned as a place of sporting excellence, Trafford is the home of Manchester United and Lancashire County Cricket Club. With excellent schools, four town centres with their own unique character, as well as superb restaurants and leisure opportunities, Trafford is a much sought-after place to live. The facets of this thriving and prosperous environment all contribute to growing and maintaining the highly skilled, local workforce.
