Property Description

In which area is Islington Wharf situated?

Islington Wharf boasts a stunning canalside location, perched on a bank of the Ashton Canal. The new residential complex enjoys the unique spirit and character of New Islington, an inner city area of Manchester and part of Ancoats engulfed by waterways. The area is known for its amazing restaurants and cafés, as well as for its vibrant music scene. The choice of nearby eateries is wide and varied, ranging from Scandinavian spots to Japanese teahouses and Mexican restaurants. Meanwhile, former church Hallé St Peter’s is now home to a local orchestra, allowing visitors to plunge into the pleasure of classical music.

The new residential complex overlooks New Islington Green, a charming green space located across the canal, where residents can enjoy a peaceful stroll along the water and relax under the shadow of a tree. Another beautiful leafy place within a 5-minute walk is Cotton Field Park, which offers seating areas and birdwatching opportunities alongside an orchard island, a grove of Scots Pines, and some wildflowers and reed beds.

Nestled in the heart of Manchester, the neighbourhood boasts a wide choice of transport links. New Islington Green paves a path to a tram stop, connected to Blue Line. Moreover, Manchester Piccadilly Train Station is just a 12-minute walk away, providing access to numerous destinations across the country. Meanwhile, brushing by the new complex, Ring Road makes it easier for car drivers to navigate the city.
