  • 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.
  • I went there for an event. It was extremely entertaining. The house is also very interesting. There's also a bar and a second-hand bookshop in the basement.
  • The place has been restored to its former glory, and offers a fascinating insight into the life of a fabulous author.
  • Such a historical building beautiful structure inside and out with a very Victorian feel and a beautiful garden
  • You need to check opening times

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.
