The breath-taking media city which is located in Manchester. Media city is home to BBC North, ITV, Coronation Street and the University of Salford.

Many college students visit Media city on trips. I recently visited and learnt so about what goes on inside the studios – I learnt about all the different types of props they used just for sound effects, for example a pair of rubber gloves tied together for a flock of birds or to make a sound of boiling water, someone would blow slowly through a straw into a glass of water.

The buildings are stunning and all very modern looking. Media City has beautiful gardens with art scattered around – making it a wonderful place to sit outdoors and relax.
