1. super close to the action

Our fantastic Manchester locations are just half an hour from the festival grounds. Staycity Piccadilly is right beside Piccadilly station so you can hop on the yellow line tram straight to Bowker Vale - the closest station to Parklife.

Our  Wilde Aparthotel by Staycity at St. Peter's Square is a short walk to the green line tram straight to Bowker Vale, all in 27 minutes! 


2. space for all the squad

Sleeping up to 6 guests in 3 bedroom apartments, Staycity Piccadilly is perfect for larger groups of friends so you can all bunk in together. If you’re festivaling with your other half or best mate, or even if you’re planning on attending solo then check out the studio and  1 bed apartments in Wilde St. Peter's Square. Remember multiple apartments can be booked together so the crew doesn’t get split up!

3. your very own kitchen

All our apartments have fully-equipped kitchens or kitchenettes with everything you need to give Gordon Ramsay a run for his money. Cook up a hearty breakfast before a big day of dancing or whip up a midnight snack when you get in. Plus it’s super handy to have a fridge for those pre-festival drinks! 


4. super central location 

Our properties are super centrally located so there’s plenty to see and do when you’re taking a break from the festival. 

If you’re staying in Staycity Piccadilly you’re just a ten minute walk away from the massive Arndale shopping centre, ideal for grabbing last minute festival outfits – have your tutus and Hawaiian shirts at the ready! When your feet give up relax in the nearby Piccadilly gardens or catch a game at Old Trafford, all of Manchester is on your doorstep.

Our newest Wilde Aparthotel St. Peter's Square is ideally located within walking distance to the city's best attractions, bars and foodie hubs. Manchester Art Gallery, the Opera House and Palace Theatre are on the doorstep, while Chinatown is literally next door. Nothing helps post-festival recovery like a steaming bowl of noodles!

5. staycafé with drinks and snacks

Both our Manchester aparthotels boast cafés serving breakfast each morning, and snacks such as sandwiches, paninis and pizzas throughout the day. We also serve beer, wine and spirits if you fancy a drink without the festival prices.


6. come and go as you please

Staycity Aparthotels are the perfect blend of home and hotel. You get all the comfort of home with hotel quality facilities – it’s a win win. Our 24 hour receptions mean you can come and go as you please, with our friendly reception team always on hand to help with recommendations or taxi bookings.
