Located within Deansgate, just a short walk away from the Museum of Science & Industry, it is an ideal location to enjoy a tranquil traffic free stroll.

Where Castlefield excels is that it has managed to retain clear evidence of its industrial heritage, combined with much earlier roots as a Roman fort, whilst re-invented itself as a trendy social scene complete with a multitude of bars & restaurants.

Coronation Street fans will also recognise the location from popular story lines that have run throughout the years!
