Property Description

Where is Lightbox situated?

The new residential complex is located in MediaCityUK, a lively neighbourhood perched on the iconic Salford Quays. As the country’s leading digital and media centre, the area is also home to the BBC, ITV, Ericsson, and Kellogg’s. In addition, MediaCityUK bustles with a plethora of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops. If you are in need of some shopping therapy, there is Quayside MediaCityUK, a large outlet mall nestled a stone’s throw away from Lightbox.

Furthermore, across the Manchester Ship Canal sits Old Trafford, an iconic stadium that houses Manchester United. As the UK’s largest club football stadium, it has a seating capacity of 74,140. Football fans will be delighted to have a venue that hosts some of the biggest matches in the country within walking distance of their new home. For more information on the club and its history, you can check out the club’s museum.
