We reached it by walking along one of the somewhat dilapidated canals from the centre. What a find! Some really good info boards put up by its society. Ignore all the "trendy" bars and concentrate on the layer upon layer of industrial architecture, exemplifying the history of industrial transportation. The museum is good too, incorporating in the old station.

Without doubts this is the best quarter of Manchester. Here you can walk through the old industrial city buildings transformed in offices, restaurants or lofts. The channels and the boats give to the area a charming view.

Having a few minutes to spare and being on foot close to the canal and old railway network we decided to have wander back in time along the canal tow-paths and cobbled streets of this very very old part of Manchester and one of the first industrial areas in England. Well worth a wander, and when you fancy a breather,... More

If you are not from Manchester and just walk around the city centre, it looks like a contemporary city with new buildings. But just walk 15 minutes, and you will see an old Manchester which you can enjoy walking through the canals, see the Roman city and the industrial revolution bridges. It's perfect for a sunny days as there are... More

Must be the right place to rest at during summer. Nice, full of history, a few things to read about the place, but if you are short of time in the city, don´t have to see it.

Walked through the Castlefield Urban Heritage Park on our way to the Museum of Science & Industry, having got off at Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink stop. Its an interesting place and the Roman gate was well recreated. Peaceful, but wouldn't go out of my way to visit. It is also the starting point to visit Deansgate shopping area however. Water canals in... More

I walked through the Castlefield Urban Heritage Park on my way back from the Museum of Science & Industry. Its an interesting place, though I found the recreated gatehouse (though it did contain one original lintel) a bit Mickey Mouse / Disney in its substance and setting. I fully understand why it was recreated, though I prefer originality - not... More

I live nearby and I am so happy that I can visit this place in a heartbeat. Great place to relax taking a walk, taking photographs seeing the bridges and water canals, the old building.
