Based at the Quays on Salford's waterfront, MediaCityUK is the most significant media development in the UK.

The Peel Media development will see the creation of a purpose built 'media city' for the creative and digital industries, delivering £1.5 billion to the regional economy over five years.

Home to the BBC, ITVSIS and the University of Salford MediaCityUK, this once derelict dockland has been transformed into a global hub for innovation and content creation.

Phase One of the site is now complete and includes:

70,000 square feet of offices
250,000 square feet of high definition studios (including the largest high definition studio in Europe and one dedicated to the BBC Philharmonic)
Public park and events space - twice the size of Trafalgar Square!
The Landing - a new facility for digital and media professionals at the heart of MediaCityUK
218 bed Holiday Inn
Booths supermarket
WH Smiths, Costa coffee, Wagamamas, Red House and Prezzo restaurants
2,200 space car park
