In need of a weekend away? I sure was, and a simple change of scenery for one weekend sure did the trick. I had never been to Manchester before (how did that happen – the shopping is AMAZING), so decided to book a random hotel and sample the delights of a different city. The hotel was fantastic, slightly concerned looking from the outside when we arrived, but very pleasantly suprised by the lovely decor of the room, huge bathroom and all round great service. I highly recommend The Belmore Hotel, the outdoor heat lamps and soft throws they put out are lovely when it starts getting chilly outside.
When we hit the town center having NO idea where to what to do, we ended up on New York Street and paid a visit to a stunning restaurant The Alchemist – and it would be been rude not to indulge in a glass of bubbles. The leather sofas were perfect for a rest, and the union jack print – love it.
The Cathedral was also stunning, inside and out. Free to go in, we made a small donation and it is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
And last but not least, me before we hit the town on Saturday night. Great bars, full of life and a VERY nice change to Nottingham. Thank you for a great weekend Manchester!
