Pocket Guide: Northern Quarter CIS Solar Tower Hotels

Manchester's roots go deep, all the way back to Roman Britain in fact, when the city started out as a fort for the legions based here. Things have changed a bit since those days, and the city really started transforming itself when Flemish weavers settled in what is now Bolton, in the 15th Century. This laid the foundation for establishing Manchester as a centre of the textile industry, which it capitalised on during the Industrial Revolution. Nowadays when you come to the city and stay perhaps at a hotel in Manchester you'll see a skyline of steel and glass towers, far removed from Roman fortifications and dominated by structures like the CIS Solar Tower, a creation of the 1960s.

Manchester Hotels For The CIS Solar Tower

You can find the CIS Solar Tower in Miller Street, but you probably won't need a map unless you're short-sighted and have forgotten your glasses! Just look up from practically any part of Manchester and it can't be missed. It was built in the swinging sixties, 1962 to be exact, when the nation was in love with concrete tower blocks, although this is one of the more attractive ones. It soars to 387 feet and was at the time Europe's third tallest building, after its counterparts in Madrid and Milan.

Visit the CIS Solar Tower from Hotels in Manchester

The tower has the largest array of solar panels in the United Kingdom, and the biggest vertical array of them in Europe. Like much of British architecture, the CIS Solar Tower was heavily influenced by the US, and especially by Chicago's Inland Steel Building. It's an impressive sight even today, when so much else has been thrown at the sky, and you should pop along from your Manchester hotel or guesthouse to enjoy the views.

Take the lift up to the top floor, from where on a clear day you can see the Welsh Clywidian Mountains and the Jodrell Bank observatory. The bird's eye views of the city spread out below are quite stunning too, if you have a head for heights!
