Flying is great, but sometimes you need to freshen up before a meeting or heading into town. Even if you’re going straight to a hotel, there’s no guarantee that there will be a room ready for you if your flight arrives in the morning. For travellers heading to/from Manchester, I have good news – you can shower at Manchester Airport for just £6.50.

Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport now offers a revitalising shower and change service in the heart of the airport. Conveniently located in Terminal 2, and connected to all terminals by elevated walkway, it’s an invigorating way to freshen-up after a long journey. Please note this facility is not available to all transfer passengers.”

If you fancy splashing out (pun intended, apologies…), you can pay an extra £5.50 and enjoy all the leisure facilities at the hotel for £12 in total.

Facilities include:

  • 12-metre indoor swimming pool
  • Fully equipped gym
  • Sauna
  • Steam room

Opening hours are from 6am Monday to Friday and from 8am on Saturdays and Sundays.

You need to book directly with the Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport. Give them a ring on +44 (0) 161 490 5000.

Bottom line

If you ever feel like a shower at Manchester Airport (or a swim!) before or after a flight, now you know the option is just minutes away.

£6.50 for a shower and £12 for use of all the leisure facilities seems very reasonable to me and I can definitely see myself taking advantage in future. Stretching out for a nice swim sounds like the perfect way to wake up after an overnight flight from the USA!

Have any readers tried out the facilities yet – what did you think?
