Came here as we were doing the coronation street tour. Too many new high rise apartment blocks going up, it will spoil the surrounds. Not an awful lot here, a couple of restaurant/bars and then the itv and bbc studios. There are watersports that you...More

Choose a nice day, we were lucky, and we didn’t book a tour as we preferred to wander around taking in the awesome architecture lining the Manchester Ship Canal and its basins. It houses (as it’s name suggests) both ITV & BBC studios and tours...More

We didn't do the tour but had a lovely wander around Media City. The architecture is interesting and it's only a short hop over to Imperial War Museum North, which is another cool building. We used the tram/replacement bus service and it was super easy...More

Excellent guides made this a great tour at BBC studios. Enjoyed reading Breakfast news. Fascinating audio room. Great for all ages and very good value. Might try ITV next time. Lowry Theatre art gallery well worth a free visit too.

It's like a tiny Canary Wharf kind of thing. Cool to see if you're in Manchester. There's a shopping mall with outlets as well. Instagrammable when the weather is nice (which isn't usually the case). Cool to see the BBC and ITV headquarters. Interesting overall.

A good place to take a relaxing walk. It's very cool at sunset to take photos from the bridges. Nice place to run far from traffic. There is also an outlet, a cinema, many cafes and restaurants.

To be honest, we were not aware of all the different media companies that were situated in this relatively small area. With the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 being represented plus a myriad of independent companies, much of the U.K. output is sourced from here....More
