A Guide To Manchester

Manchester is a very up and coming city, it is becoming increasingly popular as time goes on. Many have said it is becoming a mini-London.

There are endless things to do in the city of Manchester some of these things are:

John Rylands Library

Perfect if you are a book/ library lover. If you are a Harry Potter fan, you may want to pay this library a visit, it looks like a scene taken from Harry Potter. The library has sky-high ceilings, built in the shape of a cathedral. This library was built in memory of John Rylands who was Manchester’s first multi-millionaire and the owner of Britain’s largest textile manufacturer. This spot has been known for attracting tourists dressed up as Harry Potter to capture the perfect picture.

Three Rivers Gin Experience

This is great if you are a gin lover, gin has overtaken the world of alcohol in the past few years. This experience is in the Manchester Distillery. During the experience, you will be first shown a film about the working-class history of Manchester and its can-do attitude. Then you will be taken to a massive copper pot to see where it all happens. You will also get to place some labels on gin bottles with their machine. After this is completed, you will be taken to another room where you can pick from a wide range of items such as orange peel, elderflower, jasmine tea, etc. The gin is placed together with all these ingredients and created for you. Your recipe will be saved into their database so you can order your custom gin in the future, how great does that sound?

Street Art- Northern Quarter

Manchester is known for being quite an artistic city and we can see why. Most of the street art is based in the Northern Quarter. A lot of the murals were done during a street art festival back in 2016 that was called the Cities of Hope, where the focus was to raise awareness of social issues, challenge injustice, and champion the voice of the powerless.


Afflecks is a quirky shopping centre based in the heart of Manchester. It is made up of sixty independent stalls and shops and they have something for everyone whether you are interested in vintage clothing, crystals, tarots, piercings, types of vinyls, or games, the list is endless. Afflecks is one of those places where you can spend the entire day and there are even places inside where you can stop for food and coffee.

Royal Exchange Theatre

The Royal Exchange Theatre reopened in 1976 and it is known as one of the largest in-the-round theatres in the UK. It holds indie and classic performances with some of the greatest actors from around the UK. There is also a café inside with a lot of public spaces scattered throughout.
