There is never a dull day at MediaCityUK. Atmosphere is central to the MediaCityUK ethos and with a host of cultural and sporting attractions, cinemas, world class events, shopping, an abundance of bars and restaurants and a diversity of people living and working here - atmosphere is certainly something that is never lacking. MediaCityUK is Manchester's newest destination and we love working with our neighbours and business brands to bring innovative events and activities to our community.

I came here for a meeting, and was excited having heard so much PR buzz about the place. Underwhelmed is how I would describe my reaction. Superficial, clinical, over-priced. A hipster's paradise, and I've not seen so many manbeards and beanie hats in one place....More

HI it is open all year round, to anyone. It is tiny, blink and you will miss it, a small pond, and a statue of one of the dogs. Not much to see,
