For over ten years City Centre Cruises has provided a unique barge service for matchday travel to every home game at Old Trafford. In fact we’ve become almost an Old Trafford institution. With the huge number of fans visiting Old Trafford travelling to and from the ground can be very difficult. What better way to cut out the stress of getting there than by joining us aboard one of our purpose built passenger boats? We set off an hour before kick-off from Castlefield. The journey takes about 40 minutes, giving you time to have a couple of drinks and to discuss the game ahead. The barges moor just outside the North Stand. Then on the way back, while everyone else struggles with the traffic, you can sit back and celebrate.
Pre-booking is essential.
Return barge trip to Old Trafford: £12.00
Sailing time: 1 hour before kick off.
Departure point: Outside 'Bohemia Bar and Grill' Catalan Square, Castlefield, M3 4RU (By Lock 92)
What a trip! Just a quick email to say thank you very much for the great time we had on Saturday. The boat trip actually made our weekend! Both bar staff were excellent! What a trip! From now on we won't be travelling to and from games any other way! Regards, Steven Miller 28th November 2011 www.circsub.com
A terrific experience! We just wanted to get in touch to say what a great time we had on the day of the Solksjaer testimonial and to thank you all for providing such a terrific experience getting to and from the stadium. We hope all is well with you and we're keeping our fingers crossed for a season as successful as the last one. Safe to say, the next time we head to Old Trafford, we'll get in touch with you straight away - surely it's the only way to travel! Best wishes, Nicola Gilbert and Garry Simpson ~ Edinburgh 15th August 2008
