Chinatown, Manchester

2.3
Step under the traditional Chinese paifang--or archway--on Faulkner Street and find yourself in Chinatown. Thanks to thousands of Chinese immigrants during the last 100 years, this is the third-largest Chinatown in Europe and the second-largest in the UK. More than two dozen restaurants offer meals from quick snacks to multicourse events and includes cuisine representing Japan, Viet Nam, Thailand, and, of course, China. There are also Asian grocery stores and medicine shops. Arrange to visit Chinatown and other attractions in Manchester using our Manchester day trip planner .

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
