Overview

The 16-year-old leisure scheme houses a state-of-the-art IMAX cinema, fully equipped gym and health club, complete with a 20m swimming pool, and 16 bars and restaurants. All in the heart of Manchester! From 6am until 3am, the scheme is alive with activity. Visitors can catch a spinning class before work, pop in for lunch, watch the latest blockbuster or meet friends for a drink after work. Thanks to the newly opened Exchange Square Metrolink stop and the recently renovated Manchester Victoria station visitors can be at the scheme in minutes. The Printworks has an excellent choice of bars, cafes and restaurants offering everything from light bites to three course meals, noodles to burgers, European cuisine or something from the deep south. Not only does The Printworks have a great offering for food and drink but it also has a stellar events calendar. Make The Printworks a one-stop shop for entertainment in Manchester!

Printworks generally is fine and a really interesting building. However, Vue cinema is dreadful - place is filthy, toilets disgusting and some members of staff incredibly unhelpful, seeming to delight in being arrogant and rude to members of the public.

Yet another building converted into a great leisure complex in Manchester. Can't help but feel this as been usurped by the nearby corn exchange.

No words here really, paid almost £30 for a VIP seat at screen one, which included £5.60 for a handful of Doritos, half a jalepeno pepper and a pathetic drizzle of cheese sauce, what an unbelievable rip off for the food - bring your own....More

Wonderful place where everything is ideally in one location. Alfresco dining is a bit impossible but the whole building is quite welcoming and easy to manoeuvre.
