The city of Manchester is served by a selection of main roads and fast motorways, such as the M60, which encircles the entire area. Also worth noting, the M602 links to the western side of Manchester, while the M67 is sited on the eastern side. Numerous places to park can be found in the city centre, although some multi-storey car parks can prove pricey for long periods of time.
