  • Really nice place, interesting. It makes you feel like you were back to Gaskell's time. The tea room is really nice and cheap. The little negative point is that the ground floor is amazing, but first floor is a bit empty. The garden is very pretty even though it's small.
  • Enthusiastic volunteers. Good cafe. Spent 90 minutes
  • Great visit with very informative staff. The ticket lasts a year also so great value for money.
  • Wonderfully informative visit to be had. What a jewel in Manchester's crown! But where are the brown heritage signs to guide visitors to the house?
  • A lovely little house to walk around with a tea room downstairs. Entry is free for kids. Parking can be a bit difficult as there is no car park.

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.
