Explore TV and movie hotspots in Manchester

Manchester, Greater Manchester

Manchester has appeared on sets in many well-known television and film productions; explore the city as seen on screen.

The Northern Quarter is a creative hub with an urban heart, and its cobbled streets and historic alleyways make it a popular choice for film directors. Visitors here will recognise scenes from Captain America, Fresh Meat, Skins and Life on Mars among others.

Manchester Town Hall is full of history which is why it has been chosen for a number of screen hits over the years. Productions here include Sherlock Holmes, The Iron Lady, Peaky Blinders and The Making of a Lady.

Once a centre of industry, Castlefield is now a vibrant metropolis with plenty to see and do. It has been used for sets on Coronation Street, A Monster Calls, No Offence and Prey.  And of course don’t miss a trip to Trafford Park which is not only a great place to shop and eat, but also a location in Shameless, Car Share, Mount Pleasant and more.
