This is a place we’ve been to countless times over the years and you always see somewhere new whether it’s a bar, restaurant, history or music you will find it there.

We’ve seen several bands there and it makes a great natural amphitheatre for the sound. There really is something quite special about watching a band play in such beautiful surroundings with history all around it.

It is also a great place just to walk around and enjoy the boats and canals.

The Castlefield area of Manchester is a place with a variety of historical landmarks including the former Roman city, trendy flats and also the warehouses surrounding the canals and railway.

The Basin in Castlefield has been transformed with some flats and restaurants. There is also a large open space to sit and chill with friends.

If you walk from here alongside the canal you will end up in the city centre and you can enjoy some of the Victorian heritage.

I had no idea where this was! Once located it is a hidden gem and a perfect place for an intimate concert venue.

Decent food and drink options and the view of the stage is good. We sat on the steps at the back and had a great view of Snow Patrol.

Came here during the Sounds of the City event. Fantastic venue for music events. I would imagine if the weather isn't great it's not as good, but on a sunny day it was excellent. Good facilities provided and lots of helpful staff on site who managed the event well. Would definitely visit again.

This area was developed in the 80s progressing through the 90s. It is at the confluence of canals previously serving industrial Manchester. Now used by social narrow boat users. The bowl occasionally has outdoor events which are atmospheric although parking close by is sparse although there are parking areas a few hundred metres away
