Trafford is a metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester, England. It has a population of about 220,000 and includes the towns of Altrincham, Sale, Stretford, and Urmston.

The grounds of Manchester United and Lancashire County Cricket Club are at Old Trafford.

Trafford is also home to the Trafford Centre, northwest-Britain's largest indoor shopping complex, and the Imperial War Museum North, which faces Salford's Lowry centre across the Manchester Ship Canal.

The borough was formed on April 1, 1974 as a merger of the boroughs of Altrincham and Sale, along with Bowdon and Hale urban districts and part of Bucklow Rural District, all in Cheshire, along with the borough of Stretford and Urmston urban district from Lancashire.
