Leisure, Health and Wellbeing

City living that's good living, and where balance can be found.

Career and life. Work and home. At MediaCity we offer a balanced vision of urban life: the benefits of city living with a neighbourhood feel, a quieter pace of life and waterside views.

An ethos that prioritises sustainability.

Human-scale spaces that give you room to breathe, as well in which to walk, run, cycle and absorb culture.

Theatre, arts, music, education or just something to while away the time – you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra is housed at MediaCity and has an amazing studio in dock10, in which they stage both live and recorded concerts.

The Lowry and Imperial War Museum North are very much part of our destination and offer a packed cultural calendar for all ages to enjoy.

Imperial War Museum North

Purpose-built to tell the powerful stories of over a century of war, the Imperial War Museum (IWM) North makes full use of its extraordinary exhibition space to deliver an award-winning immersive experience.
