In good weather, you can even see as far as Liverpool and Blackpool. Manchester caters for foodies too. More than 200 mainly Indian and Pakistani restaurants on ‘Curry Mile' form a jumble of illuminated façades and neon signs. Craving something else? The hip Ancoats district has trendy restaurants galore. And Europe’s largest Chinatown is the place to go for Chinese food.

When to go
Curated for you
From a shabby port area to a hip hot spot, Salford Quays is the place to be for a different kind of outing, day or night. Where once bananas, cotton and tea were transhipped, you can now enjoy a visit to a museum, a decadent dinner, an evening of theatre or a romantic night in a luxury hotel.
ARTS & CULTURE
Manchester Town Hall, one of the best examples of Victorian Neo-Gothic architecture, is the setting of films like ‘Sherlock Holmes’ and ‘The Iron Lady’, the absolute architectural icon of Manchester and the most favourite building of the Mancunians themselves. A visit to Manchester Town Hall is a journey back to the heyday of the Industrial Revolution.
