Getting There

A circular pub walk from The Wharf in Castlefield, Manchester. The Wharf is a great city pub with lots of nooks and crannies, open buzzy areas and a really cracking menu. The walking route takes in some of the highlights of Manchester from the old canals and Gothic Revival town hall to the more recent additions such as the Civil Justice Centre. The walk follows the paved towpaths and street pavements in the city. There are no stiles or gates on route, just a few steps. The route is almost entirely flat. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.

Castlefield is a district just to the south west of Manchester city centre, close to where the A56 Chester Road crosses the A57(M). The walk starts and finishes from The Wharf pub on Slate Wharf. Approximate post code M15 4SW. The pub has its own car park, but if this is full there is additional pay and display parking on the road too.
