From its legendary football derby to an iconic music heritage rooted in The Haçienda and Factory Records, it’s easy to see that Manchester is no shy and retiring city. This place had swagger long before the Gallagher brothers made it mainstream, and alongside its better-known attractions, there are a whole host of reasons to spend some time exploring its open-minded and welcoming streets. There are plenty of hotels in Manchester city centre, but if you’re looking for somewhere that combines comfort and character, look no further than The Midland and Jurys Inn Manchester.
Get your bearings
Situated in north-west England, Manchester dates back to Roman times, but it was during the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries that the city became a major centre thanks to its role in processing cotton. Today, it’s a culture-rich city, home to everything from major museums to cutting-edge attractions and a fantastic food and drink scene.
Whether you’re loyal to red (Manchester United), blue (Manchester City) or simply a fan of the beautiful game itself, you shouldn’t leave the city without a visit to the National Football Museum, where the history and legacy of the sport is examined in impressive detail. Elsewhere, the Imperial War Museum North reveals the impact that war has had on Britain and beyond, while The John Rylands Library is a must-see for its incredible Victorian gothic architecture and is just one reason why Manchester is a UNESCO City of Literature.
While you’re there
Manchester’s nightlife scene is world-renowned, and while The Haçienda no longer exists, there are still plenty of places to party whatever your vibe. From indie gigs at the O2 Ritz to Canal Street’s inclusive gay village, drum’n’bass nights at FAC251 (the former Factory Records offices) and Albert Hall – a listed chapel that now hosts epic live performances – there’s something for everyone. Prefer something more relaxed? The Bridgewater Hall, a beautiful concert venue located close to both of our Manchester hotels, hosts touring shows from ballroom dance to jazz and orchestras.
