(950 reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Centered around the Canal Street’s many cotton warehouses, Gay Village is home to one of the oldest and most established gay communities in Europe. Renowned for its tolerance, this district contains some of the city’s finest clubs, bars, restaurants, and pavement cafes, drawing heterosexual and gay tourists from around the world. Each week, over 20,000 visitors pass through the area, exploring the vibrant neighborhood’s liveliest nightspots. Enjoy a night on the town any day of the week, or time your visit for the area’s annual Manchester Pride festival in August, which includes charity fundraising and other special events.  Gay Village is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Manchester Edition.
