Manchester Visit website

Old Granada Studios, on the site of our new St. John’s neighbourhood in Manchester City centre is to become a platform for creativity, innovation and experimentation. A place rich in heritage and culture, the Old Granada Studios building has been designed to support the production of ambitious and inspiring art, culture and enterprise across Manchester and the North West.

The facilities were fully equipped to do both recorded and live filming, and between 1956 and 2013, were the headquarters for regional TV franchise Granada Television. Until its closure in 2013, these were the oldest operating purpose-built television studios in the United Kingdom.

An exciting estate with acres of vacant studios, warehouses and spectacular buildings. Old Granada Studios will also host pop-up shops, markets, bars and food stalls, live music or theatre.
