The Lifestyle 

Castlefield a thriving community at the heart of the city

One of Manchester’s most vibrant and progressive residential communities is Castlefield, neighbouring the business districts of Deansgate and Spinningfields, and home to The Roof Gardens - One Ellesmere Street.

This serene city haven offers its residents the unique blend of city living and suburban comforts with its open green spaces,  attractive canal basin, converted mills, bridges and viaducts.

Castlefield has become one of the city's most sought after residential areas and particularly popular with professionals and families who combine the undoubted lifestyle benefits with close proximity to the city centre.  Waterside al fresco wining and dining has become synonymous with Castlefield because of the many excellent bars and some of the finest cuisine Manchester has to offer.
