a taxi wouldnt be much more from Picadilly I would do that especially for 2 of you
How much would a taxi cost approx?
What type of taxi would be best - minicab or car - and is it easy to get one at picadilly?
I'm just a bit apprehensive as last time we were in Manchester we got ripped off by a cab driver - we didn't find out until later :(
The bus fare would be about £2.00 each to The Campanile Hotel from Piccadilly Bus Station. The # 33 bus goes from the bus station and stops opposite the hotel, there's a bus every 15 minutes and the journey takes around 10 minutes.
A Firstday ticket would cost £4.00 each and this would allow you to use that companies buses all day. That ticket might be more economical if you intend to make more journeys during that day. i.e. to The Trafford Centre and back.
good work irlgeo
There are however plenty of taxis at picadilly make sure you get into a genuine black cab
Thank you both.
Just one more thing - how much should I expect to pay in a black cab for this journey?
Went past the Campanile today on the way to Piccadilly - it's more like 2.5 miles.
Sorry for pestering you all - I think we will be getting off the airport bus at Picadilly - the big square in the City Centre? As we're leaving from Shudehill Interchange the following day, would we better getting off here too and is it easy to pick up a taxi or bus at Shudehill?
I guess what I'm basically asking is:
Where to get off the bus in Manchester and where will we find a taxi?
Sorry for the confusion about the train station!
