Manchester, not by Sea

Dear reader,

I had the pleasure this week of visiting Manchester for work.  The majority of the time I was in a conference but did have the opportunity to see the city in the evenings and walking to the conference centre from the hotel.  I have to say that I do find this midlands city really very attractive.

Here are my pics and videos.  I will not spoil this with waffle.

First a video

pretty Manchester  

China Town

Canal Street in the rain

reminds me of New York

The bar of my hotel was once the phone exchange

Manchester is split into districts

A Cosmopolitan 

Gorgeous architechure.  This is a hotel I think

St Peter's square

Manchester has a sound, its the sound of trams and the tram hoots, in this video here

then it's time to leave  a video, again


  1. It looks beautiful and peaceful.

  2. I love blog posts like this. They provide a sense of "travel" for those of us who likely won't get there. Beautiful buildings. -Jenn

  3. It looks delightful. Love the planting on the bus stop. And your drink.

  4. Great architecture, thanks sharing
