Welcome to GMeP  > Greater Manchester Map Links  > Trafford

Trafford Trafford is home to 220,000 people and brings together a vibrant mix of inner-city, leafy suburban and rural communities. As well as our ancient traditions - such as the market in Altrincham which dates back to the time of Chaucer - we also have Trafford Park, the biggest business park in Europe, employing 50,000 people; and the Trafford Centre, a new kind of shopping and leisure complex for the 21st century. Each town and village in the Borough has its own identity; together they create the overall character of Trafford.

Trafford is also home to Manchester United, the world-famous football club, which has its stadium at Old Trafford, while a short walk away is another much-revered sporting venue, Lancashire County Cricket Club, the home of Test Matches for more than 100 years.
