These were one of the first canal systems in England, supplying the cotton mills of Manchester. Well restored site plus roman remains as well.

Who knew that a turn away from the city centre would lead to such a beautiful space?! Easter Sunday at the pub was such a treat and surrounded by the amazing building, warehouses and restaurants felt surreal. Walk along the canal, visit the ruins and walk around the beautiful, picturesque area. We were fortunate to have a stunning sunny day!... More

This small park is just across the street from MOSI or you can access it by Castlefield tram stop. In the park a roman gateway has been reconstructed and there are... More

We visited Manchester on our boat for the first time. We needed to moor in a relatively safe place with lots of boats around, and Castlefield Basin was recommended. It was really vibrant, plenty of activity, but was not phoney and did not turn its back on its industrial past. It is a place, rather than a park, and all... More

Unbelievable to think that exist a place like this, in a big city like Manchester. You can feel like in a unspoilt place in the world, and there are a lots of restaurant or pub very nice there. I recommend you go.

Moored our boat in Castlefield in the tuning fork and walked around this amazing site. Close to some top class eateries and pubs everything you need in one place Easily accessible by free bus service full of historic warehouses and attractions. A lot of the sites around are used by TV for filming so everyday is a surprise!!!
