The area has long been Manchester’s ‘student area’. With its many bars and buzzing student community, there are always things to do near Fallowfield, Manchester. Renowned for its lively social scene, Fallowfield has a mixture of shops, bars, restaurants and activities to take advantage of.

Home to Platt Fields Park, one of the largest parks in Manchester with a wealth of leisure facilities for all ages. Families can enjoy exploring the vast 16 acres of the park. Complete with two age-appropriate playgrounds and a beautiful central lake, perfect for watching local wildlife. 

For those who prefer to travel on wheels, the park has a super BMX track and a great set of ramps at the skatepark. Anyone can turn up and have a go, provided they have the right safety equipment. The park is also home to basketball and tennis courts, well manicured gardens, a community orchard and the Manchester Gallery of Costume. Day trippers paradise.
