The Bridgewater Hall is an international concert venue just south of Manchester city centre. It cost around £42 m and currently hosts over 250 performances a year.

The hall is home to the The Hallé orchestra, the UK’s oldest extant symphony orchestra, and is the primary concert venue for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The building sits on a bed of 280 springs, which help reduce external noise.

The venue is named after the Third Duke of Bridgewater who commissioned the eponymous Bridgewater Canal that crosses Manchester, although the hall is situated on a specially constructed arm of the Rochdale Canal.
