My favourite area of Manchester. Important for it's place in the industrial Revolution. With stunning architecture relating to the industrial past. But also lovely for quiet walks by the canal.

Lively and pretty setting on sunny days specially- the Wharf, Barca and Albert´s shed are near it. The canal is beautiful in this area - and it is very close to the MoSI.
