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 .

  • Yes, there's the Chinatown gate and lots of restaurants, some of which are quiet good. Great part of Manchester.  more »
  • This cool pass, you get the picture and little more. It is a rather dirty place, night remember you films from the Bronx.
