I walked through the Castlefield Urban Heritage Park on my way back from the Museum of Science & Industry. Its an interesting place, though I found the recreated gatehouse (though it did contain one original lintel) a bit Mickey Mouse / Disney in its substance and setting. I fully understand why it was recreated, though I prefer originality - not... More

I live nearby and I am so happy that I can visit this place in a heartbeat. Great place to relax taking a walk, taking photographs seeing the bridges and water canals, the old building.

My favorite neighborhoods in Manchester are, without a question, Castlefield and Deansgate. The arquitecture is just lovely and quite intelligent since the mix between old industrial buildings and new construction was well achieved. There is only one exception to this and it is a big exception. The Beetham Tower where Hilton is. In my humble opinion, this was the worst... More

A great urban place to visit which differs from the rest of the city. Recent refurbishments on buildings has a significant impact. Old warehouses have been converted to studios, flats, offices and galleries. Also, many modifications have been made in the Museum of Science and Industry.

I was expecting someone else but maybe this is why it didn't live up to my expectations; not at all. I have been to places with Roman Remains before; better places. This area by the river is nothing special, just a small park and some stones (and stairs) above which we've got trams. The river is nice but there is... More

Castlefield is now one of my favourite areas of Manchester city centre. I often get off the tram at Deansgate-Castlefield stop so I can walk through the park into the main shopping area. There are numerous bars and an excellent pub, colourful canal boats and of course, the old viaducts which carried, and still carry, trains into and out of... More

.... but what a pity it's quite the opposite. Dirty, decaying, neglected. A pity such potential is not being realised.
