Castlefield Urban Heritage Park

Castlefield is the UK’s first Urban Heritage Park and the heart of Manchester’s industrial revolution.  Within, you’ll find an array of cobblestone roads, railway viaducts, red brick warehouses, tramlines & canals that reveals the industrial heritage of the north. 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!
