See & Do

See & Do
Have a peek at Granada TV’s Coronation Street film set from the rooftop. You’re right in the heart of Manchester’s shopping district here so take a trip to Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and the city markets to flex some plastic.

If culture is more you thing then the Lowry Centre, Manchester Opera House and Manchester Art Gallery are all nearby, while fans of the beautiful game can see the big soccer stars in action at Old Trafford or the City of Manchester Stadium close by. Manchester’s Royal Exchange theatre is also nearby for some great stage productions. 

While there’s no in-house spa, you won’t want to miss a dip in the rooftop hot tub.
