My favourite area of Manchester. Important for it's place in the industrial Revolution. With stunning architecture relating to the industrial past. But also lovely for quiet walks by the canal.

Lively and pretty setting on sunny days specially- the Wharf, Barca and Albert´s shed are near it. The canal is beautiful in this area - and it is very close to the MoSI.

Took a morning walk along the towpaths through the city to Castlefield. A beautiful walk taking about 30 minutes from Piccadilly through The Village & Chinatown, leading to a gentle oasis hosting several bars and restaurants.

So close to city centre, at the far end of Deansgate this quiet area is breath of fresh air after the city centre. Well signposted you can walk a long way by the side of the canal. The Wharf is good place to stop and...More

It was fantastic to see the canals and the homes motoring along them. A real shame at the amount of rubbish floating along the canals.
