The Bridgewater Hall is a world-class international concert venue in Manchester city centre. It hosts a busy programme of events including concerts by its three resident orchestras; the Halle, BBC Philharmonic and Manchester Camerata.
The impressive structure cost over £40 million to build. Clever building techniques were utilised to ensure it remains acoustically insulated from the noise of the nearby Metrolink and train lines and the chaos of Deansgate Locks. The entire building actually floats above the ground on around 300 giant steel springs. It was the first concert hall constructed using this method.
The venue has a seating capacity of 2,400. Facilities include a restaurant, café bar, and gift shop. Guided tours are available.
The hall is situated on Lower Mosley Street in Manchester city centre (postcode M2 3WS), opposite the Manchester Central convention centre (formerly GMEX). Car parks within easy walking distance include the NCP Manchester Central (M2 3GX), NCP Great Northern Warehouse 1 (postcode M3 4EE), and NCP Great Northern Warehouse 2 (postcode M3 4EE).
The closest Metrolink station is Deansgate-Castlefield (St Peter’s Square is also nearby). Manchester Oxford Road and Deansgate train stations are within easy walking distance. Visitors arriving at Manchester Victoria or Manchester Piccadilly can catch the free Metroshuttle bus to the Bridgewater Hall.
