My walk in search of the Roman ruins at Castlefield led me beside a canal which was simultaneously interesting (for its history), beautiful (for the architecture and bridges) and scary (walking alone along some of the bits was a touch dark and gloomy). The ruins...More

Was generally unkempt with weeds everywhere. We did stay there two nights on our narrowboat but would not want to do it again. The saving grave was its convenience to a key part of Manchester. A little bit of forethought and planning and the spending...More

We loved this area of Manchester - the canal paths give an interesting "secret" side to the city centre, and the pubs and restaurants are very good (we ate in Albert's Shed - excellent). Totally safe and very clean - we loved it.

A nice place to go, sit & watch the world go by. It is a haven away from the rest of the city, good place to just sit & chill

A lovely place to relax and stroll, with walks by the canal, with all the barges moored, bridges, and a Roman fort all in the area. It has become something of a "hot spot" in the evenings with all its bars and restaurants but during...More

Being honest, Manchester is not the most beautiful town ever, but this place, though small, is really nice to have a walk. It is considered the nicest area in town. I would recommend to go for a walk and to have a drink in the...More

This area is great for a walk and sight-seeing. There's a great deal of history here, in the Roman fort remains and canal system, but in a low-key non-preachy way. It's close to Manchester Center and its sights evoke Manchester as an urban city who...More

A visit to Castlefield Urban Heritage Park was a relaxing visit particularly the Roman Remains and along the canal. We also managed to experience the opening of one of the gates at the canal.
