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!!!

A really interesting area where many of the old warehouses have been preserved and refurbished. Lovely walks around the Canal with lots of colourful barges moored up for the season. The pub/restaurant is well worth a visit for its delicious food.

I visited around the time of the Commonwealth games as a photographer doing a model-shoot and was extremely impressed. Having told others how good it was, I recently went back with my wife to show her around the place. Wow, has it gone downhill!. Whilst the canal, renovated brick buildings and sympathetic new build are fine, the impressive iron railway... More

Saw the other reviews on tripadvisor, and decided to seek it out. The weather was beautiful and so was this place. The restored building look great, boats all along the canal, and plenty of places to stop and have some refreshment. Many other cities should take a look at this.
