Manchester's City Center


Manchester City Centre Drone Footage! 4K


Check out this fantastic drone tour of the great UK city of Manchester, compliments of brand-new AirVuz contributor and pilot MCR_Drone_Cinematics.  Shot with a DJI Mavic Air, the video will take you over the center of the city, the core of the second-largest urban agglomeration in the UK and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.  Although its once-ubiquitous factories have largely closed, the city has been revived as one of the UK's top cultural centers; it's now the country's second-most visited destination after London.

AirVuz contributor admr1985 brings us this remarkable drone video of the UK city of Manchester on a near-lockdown during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  Shot with a DJI Mavic Pro 2, you'll see the empty streets of Manchester: the center of the UK's second-largest metropolitan area and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.  While the UK was slower to impose social distancing measures, by the last week of March most of its population was under community quarantine.

BBC Media City


BBC Media City Salford Quays

MediaCityUK is one of the most ambitious urban redevelopment projects in the UK.  It uses land of the old Salford Quays on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, which connected the (now closed) Port of Manchester with the Irish Sea to the west.  Located just a short distance west of central Manchester, its anchor tenant is the media giant BBC.  Seen here in this drone video by Simon Whittaker, the development is emblematic of the transition that's occurred in this city, considered the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

Contributor admr1985 used a very creative vlog format to showcase some beautiful drone footage of the skyscrapers of Manchester, England.  Manchester is the center of the largest metropolitan area in Northern England.  The epicenter of the Industrial Revolution which began in the late 18th century, it now sports one of the most modern looking skylines in the UK.  Its tallest building, which you'll see in the video, is the 64 story, 200 meter (659 ft.) Deansgate Square.  It was completed in 2018.

Here's a great aerial tour of Manchester, England, compliments of admr1985.  The video features footage of the central business district, including the new Deansgate Square development on the south side of the city core.  You'll also get some nice aerial views of the city's sprawling suburbs, which help make this the UK's second-largest urban area.  Considered the cradle of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester has fully recovered from the 1996 IRA bomb which devastated a large portion of downtown.

Oldham: Greater Manchester

Located just northeast of Manchester, Oldham was one of the great boom towns of England's Industrial Revolution.  Oldham was one of the first English towns to convert to the new style of production in large mills beginning in the late 1800's.  It really took off in the second half of the 19th century: at one point, this town in what was then Lancashire produced more cotton cloth than Germany and France combined.  You can check out this historic town from above in this drone video by Visual Euphoria Studio.
