Local Tips

Must See

A five-minute walk from the hotel, the Gothic Manchester Cathedral dates to the 14th century, but the additions and restorations span centuries. Take a free 30-minute tour Mondays through Saturdays. Or enjoy a cup of tea and a quick bite in the Visitor Centre tea shop, before browsing the exhibits or perusing the bookshop.

What's New

Housed in a striking Edwardian building, Manchester's Corn Exchange is a global dining destination with nearly a dozen restaurants ranging from Brazilian barbecue-themed Cabana to Wahaca, an upscale venue serving Mexican street food. A 10-minute walk from Crowne Plaza Manchester City Centre hotel, the Corn Exchange is notable not just for the food but for its blend of architectural styles.


For an alternative to high-street shopping, pay a visit to Afflecks. This indoor market features an eclectic selection ranging from vintage clothing to fancy dress. Manchester artists sell their one-of-a-kind fashion designs and accessories here. Browsing through the booths is half the fun, and people-watching is an added bonus at this beloved institution known for its local colour.

Must Do

Regardless of the club you follow, the National Football Museum, a five-minute walk from our Manchester hotel, is a must-visit. The Hall of Fame is here, with memorabilia from England's all-time greats. Plus, you can test your own skills through interactive exhibits. There's plenty for kids and adults alike to enjoy, including historic BBC broadcasts that let you relive great game moments.
