Manchester’s must-see sights
Arty types, this is your city and The Lowry gallery and theatre space is a great place to start. For a glimpse at iconic architecture, the grand pillared façade of Manchester Central Library’s sure to tick the box, while footy fans will have a ball at the Old Trafford Arena tour.
A city of history
Manchester’s enchanting tale spans back centuries, with each bustling street whispering the secrets of a time gone by. From its Roman roots to the rise of the textile trade during the Industrial Revolution, this city’s history’s as prominent as its present.
The Northern Quarter
Manchester’s no stranger to the hipster scene. Those in the know head to the Northern Quarter – a unique tangle of streets where graffiti-clad shops and vintage boutiques meet quirky cafés and one-of-a-kind pop ups. It’s the north’s answer to London’s Shoreditch.
