Latest reviews | Events in Manchester | 10 Places to Stay

Manchester is everything you’ve ever heard about and more. It’s a city steeped in history, a canvas for world-class architects, a cultural playground for the young and the young at heart, a culinary paradise, a sporting Mecca, a shopping utopia…you name it, Manchester has it in style. Manchester is also a place where you can sit back, relax and watch the world go by. A visit to Manchester can mean chilling out in one of the cafés and bars, or visiting the city’s museums and galleries. By night there’s live music and theatre, or world class cuisine in sumptuous restaurants, or witness the bright neon lights in the restaurants of the city’s Chinatown or Rusholme’s Curry Mile. Manchester is also a city that knows how to put a smile on your face. The city that brought you the likes of Steve Coogan, Peter Kay and Caroline Aherne has a burgeoning comedy scene. Venture out of town and you’ll discover what lies beneath the fantastic shimmering domes of the Trafford Centre. Just a brief ride to The Quays, Greater Manchester’s unique waterfront destination, takes you to Daniel Libeskind’s striking Imperial War Museum North, Michael Wilford’s The Lowry, Manchester United’s “Theatre of Dreams” and the Lowry Designer Outlet, where you can pick up designer labels at up to 70% off original prices. Further afield, enjoy the diverse landscape of Greater Manchester, with its rich character, rolling countryside and spectacular industrial heritage, much of it located around 100 miles of spectacular canals and waterways, and all easily accessible from the city.
