Welcome to Primark Manchester
Welcome to Manchester

I genuinely LOVE Manchester.. so much so that I have never left or lived anywhere else! True story - I actually once jumped in on a conversation between parents and son on a train when I was visiting Essex who was saying he was contemplating applying to Uni of Manchester and basically sung it's praises and helped them plan how to get there and back easily.. and persuaded the son that he definitely should apply to attend Uni here! 😂

I could talk all day and all night about what a fabulous City it is and this post is dedicated to telling you all my absolute favourite things to do and places to visit. There are loads of hotels in Manchester so get yourself booked in and experience everything this amazing city has to offer.

I thought it would be easier to try and capture all these by genre or reason of visit, so here goes!

FOR THE FOODIES

Manchester is getting some AMAZING restaurants and it's great to see that some London favourites are making their way up North! We now have our very own Dishoom and The Ivy alongside some quirky establishments such as Almost Famous and Home Sweet Home where the food is so wrong yet so very very right! There's a fair few San Carlo Restaurants too serving lovely Italian food, a personal fave is the Gran Cafe in Selfridges Beauty Hall for a chilled all day breakfast or sweet treat!

FOR THE GALS INSTAGRAMMY WEEKEND

Cameras at the ready! Gorgeous cocktails at the very pretty Sunset Manchester, a snap infront of *those* angel wings at Dirty Martini and getting dolled up for a night at Menagerie I can guarantee a girlie weekend in Manchester with the besties will be SO much fun!

Blow dries at Kara's Blow Dry Bar and you can even get your makeup done by an MUA who ACTUALLY worked on the most recent Victoria's Secret Show, the amazing Grace Sloan at Charlotte Tilbury in Selfridges Manchester!

FOR THE BEAUTY AND RELAXATION LOVERS

Manchester has a fantastic offering of spas and salons to enjoy where you can get glam or ease those aches and pains. The Spa at the Midland, a scientific facial at Skin Health Spa, Traditional Chinese Medicine with Guru Fa at Flint and Flint in Harvey Nichols or all things Nails at Nailista Manchester, there's a choice for everyone!

FOR THE SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES OBSESSED

I mean. You can't really mention Manchester without being asked if you are a blue or a red but there's so much more than football! Fancy Axe Throwing or Junkyard Golf? Indoor Skiing, sledding or snowboarding? Indoor Skydiving? Manchester has many fun things to do if shopping isn't your bag...

Coming up in May 2019 we have the Manchester Half Marathon and 10K so you could see the sights whilst achieving a fitness goal!

FOR THE SHOPAHOLICS

Manchester shopping is getting better and better. With the City Centre and Trafford Centre not far from oneanother, come rain or shine you can hit the shops and grab yourself some must haves whether it be designer darling or Primarni chic. We have 2 Selfridges, a Harvey Nichols and rather excitingly a Uniqlo coming soon, I apologise in advance to your bank balance... :)

FOR THE ART AND CULTURE FANS

Manchester has a really interesting history and there are loads of museums and galleries for those who want to do something to enrich the mind. From the Manchester Museum, to MOSI and the Imperial War Museum, to Manchester Art Gallery, the National Football Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery. I am mentally making a list now of places to go as it's been years since I have visited most of these attractions and really want to get an updated look!

FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THE TUNES

There's no denying Manchester has an amazing music scene and no matter what gets your toes tapping you will find a venue to cater for it! Personal faves are Alberts Schloss for live music, casual vibes and general debauchery and a hop, skip and a jump down the road is Revolucion de Cuba which will make you feel like the dancing lady emoji IRL. 

One thing is for sure.. us Mancs are super friendly and if you come for a visit, you will definitely be shown a good time!
