About the development

MediaCityUK is a new waterfront destination for Manchester, with digital creativity, learning and leisure at its heart. Our vision is to become a leading international hub for the creative and digital sectors - and a vibrant destination to work, live and play.

An eclectic mix of more than 200 businesses call MediaCityUK their home. From global celebrated names like the BBC, ITV, SIS and Bupa to fresh up-and-coming creative brands and the very best in sport, culture and shopping.

With key educational and training providers already in situ at MediaCityUK, we aspire to be a new seat of learning for Manchester and the North West of England - complemented by an exciting mix of restaurants and bars, and retail therapy in the Lowry Outlet.

Located on the banks of Manchester's historic Ship Canal, MediaCityUK also features a wide range of commercial office space, one of the biggest HD studio developments in Europe - dock 10, a Holiday Inn hotel and great transport links via the tram or nearby motorway network.
