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.

I really enjoyed walking along the canal. The area has been sympathetically restored with lovely buildings and some very pretty canal boats moored along it. Look out for the very cute duck house. There are a few bars to stop and sit in for a longer visit. I found it a very peaceful part of a busy city. Well worth... More

It's a Damn shame there aren't more of them. Castlefield Summer in the City festival was great. Pixies and James were fantastic. I know the courteeners played last year, but I remember when this was one of Manchester's trendy spots. I remember Depercussion days with Alfie, I am Kloot, Clint Boon experience, Space and more. Come on Manchester. I know... More

As people have said not a false generated area. Beautified yes but that is because it used to be old and mainly derilict wearehouse area with what was industry to feed the narrowboats with goods from the the mills and stored before shipped to the rest of the world. So as the topography was dictated by needs in the 18th... More

Manchester at it's best. Nice for a walk. Interestingo to see the roman remains and think about them. For a snack go to The Wharf. Pity they don't do a good quality cup of tea.

Not a theme park by any means but part of the heart of Manchester. A variety of watering holes and eateries - Dukes 92 and Albert's Shed being my favourites - perfect for afternoons and evenings as well as being a popular part of Manchester night life. On holidays and during the summer there are frequent outdoor events. You can... More

Walking around here is nice and worthwhile. There are boats you can rent if you are in a group. Restaurants.are around too. Its not too tidy though, but feels unique. If you are visiting Manchester, have a walk in this area too.
