Why locals love it
Castlefield Bowl is in the Castlefield part of Manchester city centre. In the summer they have 'Sounds of The City' where lots of artists play. The bowl faces the canals & has outdoor tiered seating, as well as grassy hill banks, where locals like to sit and relax. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and is a lovely little hidden gem.
Why you should visit it
It's peaceful, chilled and a lovely secret spot to relax, especially in the summer! Lots of locals hang out there, and it's great for people watching. It's also a nice way to escape the city for a little while, and a great place to go to on your own or with friends :)
Access it via the Roman Forts or the long way via Deansgate. Both are lovely!
