Main Attractions

Dark and atmospheric, Manchester Cathedral towers over the city’s Millennium Quarter. Stop at its Visitor Centre and take in the interactive exhibition. The striking Royal Exchange has survived almost a hundred years of ups-and-downs. These days, the Neo-Classical building houses a dramatic glass-walled theatre, a shopping centre and a café within its columns. The futuristic-looking Lowry Centre in Salford contains a collection of work by that quintessentially Northern artist L.S Lowry. Home to arguably the most famous football club in the world, Old Trafford is a familiar name to fans of Manchester United. Matches and training sessions are regularly held there, and fans might just catch a glimpse of a player even during the off-season.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

The massive Trafford Centre is Manchester’s shrine to consumerism. Selfridges, John Lewis and Debenhams all have sizeable presences here. Closer to the city centre, Harvey Nichols is the stomping ground for famous footballers and their WAGs (wives and girlfriends). There is an elegant restaurant on the second floor that offers light lunches and afternoon tea. The Arndale Centre has all the well-loved high street brands, including an immense Next outlet. Check out Afflecks Palace for vintage and alternative fashion, as well as tattoo parlours and piercing studios. Shop with a conscience at Oxfam Originals. The proceeds from sales of vintage clothing go towards helping Oxfam with their work. The famous Curry Mile has restaurants offering up plenty of delicious spicy dishes. This’n’That in the Northern Quarter also has plenty of inexpensive curry dishes on its menu – a meal of rice and three curries will set you back about £5. Canal Street has a large variety of bars and clubs to suit everyone. Take in a gig by the band of the moment at the Manchester Apollo, or seek out up-and-coming acts at the University of Manchester’s Student Union.
