Spinningfields Manchester

Situated next to the River Irwell, in the west end of Manchester, Spinningfields is a financial centre and popular entertainment and residential area. It is bound by Quay Street to the south, Bridge Street to the north, and Deansgate to the east.

The area also happens to be one of Manchester’s most vibrant destinations, providing residents and visitors with a hub for work, rest, and even play.

Spinningfields’ History

The creation of a central business district was first proposed in 1997 when Allied London bought several buildings surrounding the John Rylands Library. Its endeavours were helped by the city council being keen to redevelop Manchester’s city centre after the 1996 bombing.

The development spread across 22 acres, containing three million square feet of office space, most of which were completed by 2008. Though the financial crisis almost forced Allied London to leave the project incomplete, the company reached an agreement with the council, allowing the development to continue.

What Can You Find at Spinningfields?

Today, the area is home to the city’s most popular shops, bars, and restaurants, such as Tattu, Iberica, and The Oast House. There are also several attractions, including the Museum of Science and Industry, the Old Granada Studios, and the People’s History Museum.
