Latest reviews | Events in Old Trafford | 10 Places to Stay

To many people Old Trafford represents Manchester United Football Club known as the Theatre of Dreams (capacity 76,000), for others though it represents Lancashire County Cricket Club (capacity 19,000) in fact Old Trafford, in the Trafford Borough of the City of Manchester, represents both of these and more. The Trafford area was once owned by one of the most prominent Catholic families of Victorian times – the Traffords, it was they who, it is believed, built two halls here, Old Trafford Hall and New Trafford Hall – neither of which exist today but the name of Old Trafford survived and lives on. There is no denying that Old Trafford is world famous, be it football or cricket these teams have given their respective sporting worlds some great individuals and talents both past and present – and no doubt in the future. Today the residential area known as Old Trafford has around 13,000 residents, it offers a diverse multi-cultural neighbourhood with a variety of shops selling goods from as far afield as the Caribbean, some of the shops have been established for years and is where shopping is more a social experience for the residents. Old Trafford’s convenient location close to Manchester City Centre and the Salford Quays, the Lancashire County Cricket Club and Manchester United’s ground make it a “must see” location if you are in the area.
