Discover Manchester’s cultural charms

Manchester, Greater Manchester

Immerse yourself in contemporary commissions and historic collections on a cultural city break in Manchester.

Pay a visit to The Whitworth which houses an internationally important collection of 55,000 artworks and regularly features exhibitions from some of the world’s most radical artists..

Just a short hop from The Whitworth is HOME, formed by the merger of two of Manchester’s best-loved arts organisations, Cornerhouse and the Library Theatre Company. This centre for international contemporary art, theatre, film really does feel like home and there’s always an engaging performance or film showing. Alternatively you can spend the afternoon relaxing in the HOME café with a book and locally brewed ale.

Enjoy a well-deserved meal at Lunya, Manchester’s new Iberian offering which is serving some of the best tapas dishes this side of Catalonia, before kicking back and relaxing after a long day at the UK’s first Innside by Melia hotel, a modern, luxurious space next door to HOME and part of Manchester’s exciting new First Street district.
