The jagged shape of the Air Shard stands out of the Manchester skyline.
Dare you climb the AirShard? The jagged shape of the IWM North viewing platform is one of the most iconic features of the Manchester skyline; this is your chance to scale the inside.
Climb the 180 steps or take the lift that rises at an angle. Stand almost 100 feet in the air, looking down through the mesh gangway under your feet, to the anti-aircraft searchlight pointing up at you from the ground below.
For those brave enough to make the journey, sneak a peek into the construction site of the new Coronation Street and experience spectacular views of MediaCity:UK, The Quays and Manchester.
A small charge applies.
IWM is a charity, and we depend on supporters like you to help us care for and display our exceptional Collections. Please consider making a donation today.
