Great up North.
City of culture. Industry. Food. Music. Fashion. And – not forgetting – football. With so much to offer, it’s no surprise that Manchester is one of the most loved, and most visited, cities in the UK.
Heralded as the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester’s history is still very much alive in its streets today. Canals weave alongside red-brick warehouses. Bars sit beneath viaduct arches. Start-ups and media companies share streets with century-old brands. Unlike other UK cities, Manchester can be mainly explored by foot. Meaning even the miniest of mini breaks will give you the chance to get a real taste for the city – starting, of course, with your very own apartment in our former cotton factory.
