Get your culture fix in the eclectic Northern Quarter - the trendiest neighbourhood in Manchester. One of our Manchester hosts is ready and excited to show you what this unique and hip area has on offer.

Whatever your preferences - music, food, art (we’d take all three), your new-found friend aka our host (although to be honest, in this northern city everyone’s so friendly you’ll have plenty of new pals) will take you the coolest spots around.

You could pop into the patchwork of galleries, bars and lifestyle stores or a popular attraction like the artists’ studios at Manchester Craft and Design Centre

Despite the gentrification of the neighbourhood, it’s stayed true to its original flare and is still loved by locals and visitors eager to get a taste of NQ’s unique vibe.

The music culture is rife in the North Quarter, so you could stop by live music venues, music history- filled pubs and our recommendation, Piccadilly Records, an NQ institution where you’ll find vinyl to suit every taste.

And we’d be wrong to deprive you of even just a sample drinks and snacks - skip from bar to bar, tasting local craft brews and tantalising cocktails, and eat your way from Thailand to Texas in the areas quirky and diverse eateries.

Welcome to where the cool kids hang out.
