Trip to MediaCity and Salford Quays

Post date:



MediaCity is a property development on the banks of the original Manchester Ship Canal in  Salford and Trafford, Greater Manchester.

It is a mixed, high tech development by Peel Media ( Peel Holdings also developed the nearby Trafford Centre ) centred around the BBC and ITV media companies plus the University of Salford media city campus.

the nature of the enterprise, it’s positioning and target business model have encouraged a lively, interesting and adventurous structure which shows in the buildings and atmosphere of the place.

All of this makes for many interesting photo opportunities and whilst it was hard to do justice to either on such a short introductory visit both Meg and I did enjoy a fascinating hour and a half exploring the scenery and taking a few photos in the cold, cloudy weather.
