Location & Parking: Closest metro link is in St Peters Square, which is approximately 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Nearest car park is Great Northern Warehouse, situated at the rear of the hotel. From the M60, exit at J12 onto the M602. Follow it to the end and the hotel is right in front of the GMEX Exhibition Centre.
Restaurants: Steak & Lobster - Our name, our menu. We’ve taken choice and refined it. With fewer options, we can focus on perfecting what we do best: 10oz, dry-aged rib-eye steaks and fresh whole lobsters served on the half-shell.

Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester Free Trade Hall Logo

18 fully equipped meeting rooms and a spectacular event room that can accommodate as many as 550 guests, 263 bedrooms including 20 al fresco suites that each feature a covered terrace. 

Built in 1853 to commemorate the repeal of the Corn Laws, the Free Trade Hall has been at the centre of life in Manchester for almost 160 years.The building has been bombed, abandoned, rebuilt several times and seen much controversy.

It has also enjoyed many lives – a political arena, concert hall and rock venue with a most diverse range of famous people appearing on stage - Winston Churchill (hailed as his most brilliant speech), Bob Dylan (Judas gig), Pink Floyd (performed prior to album release), the Sex Pistols (started the Punk era) and the Dalai Lama (the last speaker).

Finally, it was reborn in 2004 as a magnificent 263 bedroom hotel, award winning restaurant and must visit spa. It retains its original façade, heritage and famous artefacts plus it is still at the heart of Manchester life.

Located in Manchester’s historic Free Trade Hall and the original home to the Hallé Orchestra, Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester hotel has brought a new generation of award winning luxury to one of the city’s oldest and most iconic buildings over the past decade.
