Latest information


Indoor dining and entertainment has re-opened

We're so excited to welcome back visitors who are now able to safely enjoy the full Trafford Centre experience with the return of indoor dining and entertainment venues.

We’ve been hard at work preparing for the safe return of shoppers and staff and we have extra precautions in place to meet the government guidelines – please take a moment to read our FAQs here.

Planning ahead

To make sure your visit is a safe and enjoyable as possible we've put together some top tips for planning ahead:

1. Dress for the weather

In order to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing we've put limits on the number of visitors we have in the centre. This means at busier times you may have to queue outside prepare for the Great British weather and bring a brolly.

2. Look for quieter shopping times

If you're hoping to visit the centre when it's at its quietest we'd recommend keeping an eye on our quieter shopping times page.

3. Don't forget your mask

Visitors must wear a face covering which covers the nose and mouth whilst inside the centre and within stores, unless exempt. Read about all our safety measures here.

4. Check store and restaurant opening times

While the centre will be open from 10am - 10pm weekdays, 10am - 9pm Saturdays and 12noon - 6pm Sundays.

If you're planning to visit a particular store, restaurant or leisure venue we recommend contacting them direct as individual opening times can change without notice. Check the Shop, Eat or Play directories for contact details.

5. Follow the rule of six

From 17 May, the rule of six (or larger if just two households) will apply to indoor spaces – this includes restaurants and leisure venues.

Welcome back!

We’d like to thank everyone in advance for helping us to keep The Trafford Centre a safe and enjoyable place to shop. Watch our Welcome Back video for a peek behind the mask...
