Stained glass delight at the Royal Exchane Theatre

With lots of independent productions and fascinating speakers, The Royal Exchange Theatre is a real go-to cultural destination in the city.

It's been open since 1976, but its history delves back much further and the building has a lot of history with Manchester’s cotton trade. But this dramatically changed in WWII, when it was hit during the Blitz and badly damaged. Much restoration work has gone on over the decades and the beauttiful stained glass dome in the centre of the Great Hall is a truly impressive sight.

Rooftop drinks in the not-so rainy city

Manchester is famous for its rain, rather than its outdoor watering holes, but with more and more rooftop bars popping up, you can now capture the sights of the city from a whole new perspective.

For casual drinks try Big Hands on Oxford Street or the Deansgate Pub which is just steps from Deansgate Station. Alternatively, for some upmarket cocktails head to Manchester House or Brass at the King Street Townhouse.

A night out with a difference

As well as a vibrant music scene, Manchester is home to some of Britain's greatest comedians. The Comedy Store makes for a laugh-a-minute night, and the Frog and Bucket on Oldham Street has some hilarious up-and-coming acts.
