It is lovely for a walk and the history is interesting. There are houseboats and there are lovely places to eat in that area. Dukes was good
We enjoyed this far better than expected. The canal system is very unique, along with the covered boats all along the water system. The history of the canals was new to me and a story I enjoyed learning about. There is a great pub called "The Wharf" at the center offering up many beers and great food. A definite spot... More
We didn't have much time once we'd stumbled across this area which is hidden by busy roads and railways. It's near to the MOSI too. We found a Sunday retro market - lovely antique and foods, and a nice restaurant and there's some lovely looking pubs here too. Have a wander!
While walking around Manchester I came across old canals in the Heritage Park area. Very picturesque with some barge type house boats. Also, in the area was a art & craft and food event taking place, the various foods looked good, too bad I had eaten lunch before going on my walk.

A mix of iron, stone, metal, brick, water and more. Lovely to have a mooch on a sunny afternoon. A few bars & restaurants to sit and watch the world... More
If you are interested in industrial history, this is a fantastic area to see how the logistics of the canal and railways meet in a superb transport of the industrial revolution way. Then again if your not interested in history, I doubt very much you will not be left in awe of the way you can see the beauty of... More
Really nice little corner of Manchester, with a ship canal running through it, lot's of very colourful canal boats, remnants of Industrial-era architecture and train and tram lines running above it. It is is just to the southwest of the really tall Hilton tower (the tallest building in the city) so is very easy to find. There are quite a... More
