..when the sun is out!
Unless you’re willing to drag your feet across the wet streets of Manchester, I’d suggest to do your exploring on a sunny day.
I was fortunate to experience my last weeks in the city with days bountiful of sunshine. I walked into corners of the city that I would never venture down on a gloomy day, and believe me, neither would anyone else!
Slight caution to this post, it will be heavy with photos and recommendations.
Manchester has been my home for the past 7 years and I am grateful to see this city grow in abundance.. Namely in the expansion of its food scene.
Throughout the past couple of years, I’ve indulged in several restaurants that demonstrate delicious culinary arts accompanied with interior decor that range from elegant sophistication to the wild and wacky.
Let’s dive into my list of recommendations..
Brunch- San Carlo Cicchetti at House of Fraser
Afternoon Tea- Teacup in Northern Quarter
Richmond Tea Rooms in The Village
or Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral
And yes, that’s a donut burger you see right there from Reds True.. and a root beer float.
Indian- Zouk on Chester Street
Other than exploring and indulging in food, Manchester offers a great deal of the arts.
Venture into Manchester Craft and Design Centre, home to 30 resident artists and makers showcasing their work which are also made available for purchase.
Finally, this was on my To-do list before I left the city- watch a musical at the Palace Theatre
