TRAVEL TIP

Manchester’s Norther Quarter

The Northern Quarter has long been an area of extreme cultural importance to Manchester. Emerging in the late 18th century as the powerhouse of the Industrial revolution, the area bustled with the mills, warehouses and merchants houses that fed the global cotton industry. Yet following the decline of ‘Cottonopolis’ in the mid 20th century, the once thriving area fell into decay; the industrial buildings left to rot in a forgotten corner of the city. Thanks to Manchester’s burgeoning creative scene of the late 20th century however, The Northern Quarter returned to prominence as the beating heart of the city, and is now widely recognised as the City’s underground cultural hub. The striking industrial architecture that once powered the global cotton trade now houses an altogether different kind of industry; with some of the world’s best bands, DJs, artists and fashions found in the area’s various bars, gig venues, clubs, galleries and boutiques.
