Get there

Wide path, tarmac surface. Steps on path mean no wheelchairs. Access from Victoria Station—past the Arena, right under the rail bridge, left at the huge Trinity Way junction, then through the new apartments. Or cross Trinity Way, somehow (see image).


Here’s the bad. A flight of 16 steps limits this path to walkers. (2022) The start is dismal. The official start of the riverside path has been blocked by builders for near 2 years. Current access is off Trinity Way, a four‐lane highway. Don’t take the north side path—avoid. The natural end at Salford Crescent appears blocked forever by private developers. You’ll need a map or mobile map because you can get lost in a place called The Meadows. Use the bridge named ‘Adelphi’ to reach The Meadows, turn left in the middle, look for the dead‐end Cross Street, which gives access to the Peel Park footbridge. The good? Trinity Way is only seven minutes from Victoria Station. The walk is quiet and by a riverside. It’s a wide path. It takes you from Victoria to Peel Park in Salford, behind the University and Museums. If you can walk, it’s faster than the bus.
