Just across the water from the thriving area of Spinningfields, The Slate Yard is a great place for work, rest and play.

As one of Europe’s most successful urban regeneration projects, Spinningfields is a truly unique city quarter. With over 165 world-class businesses now located here, this is Manchester’s biggest commercial district – and the city’s top destination for luxury international fashion brands, restaurants and bars. No wonder it attracts over 5.5 million visitors per year.

Culturally, Spinningfields is also home to The John Rylands Library, one of the city’s most stunning buildings, and the People’s History Museum (a converted Edwardian pumping station). The area has also hosted some of Manchester's most popular entertainment events, including Manchester Ice Rink and Screenfields (outdoor cinema).
