Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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!

“Good choice of bars/restaurants”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Stayed close to the Printworks recently and enjoyed a few drinks in Weatherspoons and a meal in Chiqitos. Really handy to have so many bars/restaurants/cinema under one roof. Good choice for food or a few drinks.

“depends what youre looking for”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Been to the print works on numerous occasions. The cinema is very good (imax) but very expensive. Food wise it is also ok, but don't expect amazing service. Seems more catered for drinking later on with some good bars and deals on, but can get a little rowdy.

“Ten pounds a head and no hand soap in the toilets”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

How expensive, just less than thirty pounds for three people to watch a film. Good job we enjoyed it but I just have to say that using the ladies toilets neither of the soap machines had any hand soap in them. Get your housekeeping checked please !
