Northern Quarter

The Neighbourhood Guide to the Northern Quarter

No trip to Manchester would be complete without a visit to the Northern Quarter. It’s where the city’s ’24-Hour Party People’ image of creativity, music and hedonism meets its history as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. The clash and convergence of past and present is particularly visible in this part of town, making it one of the city’s most distinctive districts. 

Mills and warehouses are now home to hidden bars, hip restaurants, apartments and music venues. Cobbled streets are lined with pavement cafes, galleries and vintage shops, and towering brick tenement buildings act as the canvas for murals and street art. 

The Northern Quarter is packed full of character, stories and quirky features. Take a look at our self-guided Northern Quarter walking tour, by Manchester guide Jonathan Schofield to learn about its fascinating history and key sights.
