BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN MANCHESTER FOR HEN GROUPS
Boasting two incredible shopping centres as well as a whole host of high street, designer and independent stores in the city centre, Manchester is perfect for a little retail therapy.

The champagne bar in Selfridges is ideal for refueling after a long day. Located in the city centre, The Arndale has all you could ask for and more. Exit onto New Cathedral Street, where you’ll find plenty of other shops and a large selection of bars and pubs…
Manchester’s Spinningfields is the place to go if you’re looking for something a little special. It’s elegant, luxurious and you’re bound to spot someone famous. Start your evening off with a cocktail masterclass at the Alchemist – but be sure to book as it’s a favourite of many. From Lebanese to Spanish, you’ll definitely find something to tantalise your taste buds – but for a truly memorable weekend, it’s got to be Australaisia. It’s swanky, special and allows large bookings.
The longest road in Manchester city centre, here you’ll find everything from fun and games, drinks and food and of course a club open until the early hours. Start your weekend off with a game of bowling at All Star Lanes. Your skills might not be great but here, the cocktails are. Once finished, refuel with a delicious burger at Almost Famous – will you release your inner northern bird and order the one with gravy? Afterwards, choose from Dirty Martini, Impossible and Albert Schloss for a night to remember. For Peaky Blinders fans, you’ve got to head to the themed bar. Cocktails are half price on a Sunday, and everyone loves a Sunday Funday, right?
Full of bearded hipsters, Northern Quarter is Manchester’s up and coming neighbourhood packed with street art, bohemian bars and unique shops. Easily located from Piccadilly Gardens, you’ll find tonnes of restaurants and bars, as well as some of the city’s best live music venues.
