Manchester City Centre
Discover an industrial past tucked behind a modern city synonymous with football, shopping, music and boundless energy
Step out onto streets humming with energy as you settle into life in this sprawling, contemporary city. You’ll discover Manchester’s greatest asset is its lack of any one sense of culture or style. It’s a place where anyone can feel at home, and find a niche that speaks to their individuality.
Wander and admire magnificent architecture rubbing shoulders with modern industrial chic. There’s plenty of opportunity to shop ‘til you drop in top stores and bijou boutiques. Catch up with friends in trendy arthouse cinemas, indulge in the hipster café culture, and get stuck into the underground music scene, heading for big nights out in the Northern Quarter and Canal Street areas.
You can’t escape culture in Manchester. With numerous world-class stadiums, galleries and museums, you’ll be spoiled for choice whether it’s sport, science, art or history you’re into. Bring out your theatrical side at a number of excellent performing arts venues, from tiny pub theatres to the famous Palace Theatre and Royal Exchange Theatre.
Walk or jog and access sports facilities in numerous handy parks. A little further afield, enjoy getting to know Heaton, Fletcher, Prestwick Forest and Wythenshawe Parks - woodlands and green spaces that offer endless lovely days out (even a community farm).
With Trafford nearby, first-class sporting experiences at Old Trafford football and cricket grounds, as well as shopping experiences, are part of everyday life in Manchester city centre.
