The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Beetham Tower

Beetham Tower built in 2006 is the tallest building in Manchester. The Hilton Hotel is situated in the first 23 floors and the remainder of the 47 floor building is private flats and penthouses .

It was designed by Ian Simpson and is certainly a well known Manchester landmark. Seen here from the banks of the local canal with it's new low rise apartment blocks alongside.
