Abbey Hey is an area of Gorton, in the city of Manchester, England. It is known mainly for Debdale Park and Wright Robinson College.

It forms part of the electoral ward of Gorton North, which in itself forms part of the Manchester Gorton parliamentary constituency. The current MP is the Right Honourable Sir Gerald Kaufman, who has represented the constituency since 1983.


Although located just outside the boundaries, its local football club is Abbey Hey F.C..

Abbey Hey is in very close proximity to the Belle Vue Stadium, home to the Belle Vue Aces speedway team.


Due to its location, easy transport to Manchester City Centre is provided both by rail at the Gorton railway station or by a variety of Stagecoach bus routes.
