Look beyond Manchester’s well-known museums and galleries and discover HiDDEN, a network of truly unique heritage organisations scattered around this Northern city.

From the oldest public library in the English-speaking world to the birthplace of Britain’s suffragette movement, these smaller venues hold almost one million objects between them, telling the important stories of our past. 

Explore inside a police station from 1879 at the Greater Manchester Police Museum, visiting the cells and standing in the docks of a real Victorian magistrates court. Take a peek into the everyday lives and struggles of working class people at the Working Class Movement Library, or admire one of the UK’s largest bus collections from inside the Museum of Transport. 

Manchester is situated in the northwest of England, 2 hours 10 minutes from London by train.
