CityCo offices

CityCo, Manchester’s city centre management company, has launched three event and meeting spaces at its new offices in Lloyd’s House

Located in the heart of the city centre on the top floor of Lloyd’s House and overlooking Manchester Town Hall, the newly launched spaces offer a unique Mancunian venue for meetings and events for 2 – 80 people.

Positioned where Southmill Street meets Lloyd Street and extending along Jackson Street, Lloyd’s House has its very own unique story to tell. Designed in 1867 by Speakman & Charlesworth, the site was originally home to the Manchester Shipping Office and Packing Company Ltd and was the city’s first purpose-built packing warehouse, becoming an integral part of the city’s cotton trade industry during its last boom.
