Manchester Northern Quarter Area Guide

Manchester’s Northern Quarter is known as the creative heart of the city. Formerly an industrial area, home of textile storehouses and even an umbrella factory. The Northern Quarter was transformed into a hub for independent shops, live music and craft beer.

Full of public art and graffiti the area gives off the alternative and bohemian vibe that we all love.
