Elegant Spinningfields is the city’s financial centre and a popular destination for entertainment and shopping. Office workers pour into cocktail bars and chain restaurants in the evening, while locals seeking culture head to the imposing Manchester Opera House for musicals and concerts. Also in the area is the People’s History Museum, focusing on Manchester’s working-class history.
Spinningfields is an area of Manchester city centre developed in the 2000s between Deansgate and the River Irwell by Allied London Properties. The £1.5 billion project consists of twenty new buildings, totalling approximately 430,000 sq metres of commercial, residential and retail space. It takes its name from Spinningfield, a narrow street which ran westwards from Deansgate.
