Ancoats, Manchester

Ancoats and New Islington is one of Manchester’s most appealing places to live. The area is a blend of cutting-edge design, contemporary architecture and ongoing regeneration, whilst incorporating and revamping it’s industrial heritage.

Ancoats benefits from nearby bus routes, and the ‘Metrolink’ tram stop; connecting you to the entire city and it’s suburbs. Ancoats is located within walking distance to Manchester City Centre, as well as Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria train stations.

Ancoats also neighbours the Northern Quarter, an area that hosts an array of eclectic bars, fine restaurants, clothing and coffee shops. Living in Ancoats, you can feel the rush of the city centre but come home to an oasis of calm; with new marinas, revamped canals and squares, all creating a renewed sense of place.

Stylish apartments stand shoulder to shoulder with Manchester’s most architecturally important buildings. Once the heartland of the industrial revolution, Ancoats has seen a swathe of cotton-mill conversions, and revitalised terraces.

Scattered throughout the area are mysterious viewing portals called The Ancoats Peeps. They offer fascinating glimpses into the industrial workings of Ancoats, from underground tunnels to century’s old machinery, they re-connect an enterprising history with an exciting future.
