Castlefield is a canal side haven tucked away in the middle of the city. You wouldn’t think you were in the city at all when you arrive there. Once an industrial area of mills it has now been turned into a lovely area of apartments, bars and restaurants based along the canal where you can enjoy a drink in the sun. Definitely worth a visit!
