Manchester is, and always has been, a place to enjoy and live life
to the full, relax, experience the wide variety of spectacle on
offer all year round, and be entertained.
It's a pleasure just to walk around Manchester and enjoy its rich
cultural and architectural heritage, as well as the many fine modern
additions to the city's architecture and environment. The rebuilt
city centre with its state-of the-art glass and steel structures,
interspersed with pleasant parks and fountains, illustrates just
how far Manchester has come in an effort to be one of Europe's leading
Bars and restaurants have boomed, doubling in the last five years
to 450 licensed premises in the City Centre alone. Manchester's
Chinatown is unrivalled in Britain. Rusholme's 'curry mile' has
near legendary status, and both are buttressed by a thousand others:
restaurants specialising in the best of French, Italian, Thai, Korean,
Spanish, Greek, Turkish, Mexican, Japanese or even Mongolian cuisine
as well as seafood, sushi, tapas and noodle bars.
Big name chefs like Gary Rhodes, Paul Heathcote, Raymond Blanc
and Nico Ladenis have all added Manchester to their menus.

The popularity of the recent Gay-Fest celebrations, underscore
the importance of the Village to Manchester as a whole. However,
it is more than just a catalyst for wild hedonism and the Beacon
of Hope provides a lasting testament to the Village's strong sense
If Manchester's China Town is the third most significant such community
outside of China, the city's Gay Village is challenged only by San
