In 1844, former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli wrote "Certainly Manchester is the most wonderful city of modern times." He was referring to the city’s thriving industry and commerce, but you could easily say the same about 21st century Manchester. Especially when you choose to stay in the thick of it all with one of our luxury serviced apartments in Manchester.
With its rich heritage, the ‘capital of the north’ has reinvented itself as the centre of culture, music, arts and vibrant nightlife, with some world-class attractions like the Manchester Art Gallery, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Lowry Arts Centre at Salford Quays.
It’s a city with heart, passion and pride, whether it’s in the football stands of Old Trafford, the gay bars of Canal Street or the trendy nightclubs of the Northern Quarter.
Are you stopping by for the infamous Pride weekend? Got tickets for a gig or a city festival? Our weekend apartments in Manchester are the perfect choice. Not only do you have a big living space that’s ideal for socialising before heading out on the town, but you’ve also got a luxuriously comfy bed to sink into once the dancing shoes come off.
Restaurants in Manchester
As you’d expect from such a large, cosmopolitan city, Manchester’s dining and drinking scene is outstanding, with authentic cuisine on offer from every corner of the world.
There are plenty of outstanding restaurants serving superb cuisine for the foodies out there, such as The French and Manchester House. Most of the restaurants and bars can be found in the city centre, but the southern suburb of Rusholme is well worth a visit if you’re looking for great quality Asian food, and West Didsbury is renowned for its indie bistros.
Manchester is a great place for a night out. Whichever Manchester serviced apartment you choose to stay in, you'll be close to a venue or an eatery to suit every taste. Head for the stylish cocktail bars and clubs that are dotted around the city centre, or the indie bars and music venues of the Northern Quarter. Canal Street comes alive in the late hours and has a welcoming, friendly vibe for those wanting to dance the night away.
And if you don’t feel like splashing the cash on eating out, our serviced accommodation options in Manchester come fully equipped with your very own kitchen.
Shopping in Manchester
If you’re ready to do some serious shopping, Manchester is one of the best cities to visit. Take a look at our stylish, luxury serviced apartments in Manchester at Whitworth Locke. With the high street on your doorstep and beautifully curated interiors to relax in after a long days' worth of shopping, it's the ideal pitstop before you head back out for dinner.
This buzzing city is full to the brim with huge shopping malls, designer quarters, markets and indie boutiques - arguably one of the best cities in the UK for a weekend shopping break. For High Street brands and some great boutiques, the Arndale shopping centre is the biggest in Manchester, or you can head just out of town to the Trafford Centre, which is the largest shopping and leisure complex in the country. If your arms can carry any more bags, The Triangle (near the Arndale) has some gorgeous designer fashion boutiques, with more of the same in The Avenue, plus some great eateries too.
For market lovers, Piccadilly Gardens hosts a Real Food Market every Thursday and Sunday, where you can pick up local meats, artisan breads, cakes and delicious deli foods that you can use to cook up a storm in your Manchester serviced apartment.
Manchester may no longer be an industry hub, but it’s evolved into an important business and media centre for the north of England.
Local businesses based here include PZ Cussons, The Co-operative Group, Umbro and The Peel Group, as well as companies like Kellogg's, Adidas, Siemens, Warburtons and M&S. In recent years the Salford Quays area of the city has been transformed into MediaCityUK, home to ITV Granada and the BBC, which moved much of its operation from London to Manchester in 2013.
If you're visiting on business, our corporate and long stay serviced apartments could be just the ticket. Each of our luxury serviced apartments in Manchester have manned receptions and high-quality amenities such as free Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchens. So if you’re looking for a Manchester apartment to rent that really feels like a home away from home, we've got you covered.
Things to do in Manchester
You’ll never run out of things to do in Manchester. Take a walk in Heaton Municipal Park - a gloriously large open space to the north of the city. This green, expansive park surrounds the neoclassical 18th century Heaton Hall, and is the ideal setting for a walk. It even has a championship golf course!
You could also take a look to see what’s on at the Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre, which puts on several notable performances throughout the year - and the thought-provoking plays are truly eye-opening. If you don’t want to worry about running for the last train home once the show ends, we’d recommend extending your night on the town into overnight stay. Need an apartment in Manchester for one night only? We’ve got just the place. Our Manchester serviced apartments are convenient, comfortable and pristinely clean.
Visiting The Royal Exchange doesn’t have to mean watching a performance - you can meet friends for Afternoon Tea in one of the city’s grandest settings, browse the craft shop or attend numerous workshops to unleash your creativity.
Thinking of visiting the museums? Again, you’re spoilt for choice! Manchester’s array of museums include the Museum of Science and Industry, the National Football Museum (if you’re a football fan, make sure to check out Old Trafford stadium as well), the Imperial War Museum North, the Manchester Art Gallery, the Manchester Museum, the People’s History Museum and many, many more.
If you’re dying to dabble in everything that this exciting city has on offer (and let’s face it, why wouldn’t you be?) you can truly immerse yourself into real city living by staying in one of our luxury serviced apartments in Manchester.
Transport in Manchester
The city centre is pretty compact and most of the shopping centres and attractions are easily explored on foot from our Manchester serviced apartments. However, if you want to get around a little faster, there are plenty of public transport options that will quickly get you from A to B - including a free shuttle bus for people in and around the city.
Manchester’s tram network is excellent and connects all the major railway stations, museums, shopping centres and business districts. The city’s buses are reliable and frequent, and cover the city area and the outlying towns and villages.
If you prefer two wheels, you’ll find that Manchester is a bike-friendly city, with plenty of marked bike lanes and dedicated cycle routes through the city - you can even hire bikes from The Hub at Piccadilly Place. Taxis are also plentiful and you can choose from black Hackney cabs that you can hail on the street, or book a licensed cab from a private firm.
