Property Description

In which area is Potato Wharf situated?

Potato Wharf places its residents in Castlefield, the historic centre of Manchester known for accommodating a Roman fort. History and art lovers are sure to appreciate the number of museums, galleries, and historic landmarks, located within walking distance. There are the Science and Industry Museum, Manchester Liverpool Road Railway Station, and Reconstruction of Mamucium Roman Fort Wall, among many others.

Moreover, the new residential complex is flanked by Bridgewater Canal and the River Irwell, providing easy access to long promenades along the beautiful streams. Another way to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life is to wander into Saint John's Gardens, a small park with plenty of benches to sit and contemplate. For a longer stroll amidst some greenery, you can visit Hulme Park, a large leafy area that offers a football pitch, a playground, and a BMX and skateboard area.

Castlefield is well-connected to the rest of the city. A 12-minute stroll away, Deansgate-Castlefield Tram Stop is served by 5 different Lines, bringing such destinations as Manchester Airport, MediaCityUK, and the Trafford Centre within easy reach.
