  • My husband is from Gtr Manchester and on this family visit we decided to try the Whitworth. My 90 yr old F-I-L lived near by in his youth and remembers a far different type of gallery. This art museum...  more »

  • A great place to spent a couple of hours. Regularly changing guest exhibitions but also a chance to see work owned by the gallery. You must also visit the cafe restaurant a really beautiful place. They also try to have a range of family activities.
  • Lovely place. This was my first visit with my 7 month old for an Art Baby class that they put on every Monday. Really nice sensory session that leaves babies free to explore whilst a musician moves around the group singing to them. Really lovely. I will be back for the class again and also to have a look around the gallery.
  • Lovely environment, calming, relaxing lovely place to take children, especially when there are crafts in the great hall, just such a shame that there is no designated parking. Makes it very difficult to access especially when you are bringing young children from a distance. Still some beautiful exhibits and fantastic food.
  • 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.
  • Visited the gallery multiple times as it is free to enter, and I am always amazed by the collection available to view. The Andy Warhol exhibition was brilliant! I didn't expect so many of his pieces to be presented in the gallery.

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.
