  • A Friday lunch. Place pretty full but didn't feel crowded. It's a big glass cuboid in the middle of the park. The food was lovely and good value for the price. Excellent cappuccino and good variety of sweet things as well. If that isn't enough there is always the fairly newly much extended art gallery. A great place to visit on a trip to Manchester.
  • Absolutely beautifully designed extension with a cafe serving tasty, interesting, ample dishes which you eat looking out on framed vistas of park greenery.
  • Great gallery, very busy cafe but reasonable prices. We found there was a wait for about 15 minutes to get in, so we went around and viewed other exhibits while our place was reserved in the queue. (This was a Sunday afternoon) Really interesting exhibits every time I've been
  • Gorgeous architecture service totally clueless. Four staff standing around doing precious little with a queue of 7 waiting and coffee only average. GET A GRIP!
  • The is one of my favourite art Galleries in Manchester. It makes you feel part of it and if you're someone with a passion for art to really pursue it knowing that your art may some day be on exhibition in this gallery. All the staff I spoke to were nice and knowledgeable on the pieces of art I asked about. They were eager, friendly and really approachable. The lady running the garden exhibition was just a gem and the gallery's garden is so peaceful and lovely to be in. The gallery has a lovely Cafe with some really nice food in there though slightly pricey but nevertheless worth it. You have a beautiful view of the gallery gardens and also of Whitworth park from the Cafe with optional outside sitting. The toilets have locker facilities, they is plenty of parking available around the gallery though being adjust to the main hospitals (MRI, St. Mary's, the Eye and Children's hospital) can at times cause shortage of car spaces. If traveling by bus then they are plenty of buses which stop at the gallery. This is ideal for people who have planned a trip to the gallery or as an afterthought maybe before a visit to the hospital or just popping in for a decent cup of tea/coffee and for some decent food. This gallery is smoothing, relaxing and charming and truly elegant with nice surprises.

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.
