The Northern Quarter
Nestled in between Piccadilly train station and the Arndale Centre, the sprawling Northern Quarter consists of a network of small streets and alleyways containing an impressive array of independent bars, cafes and boutiques. Whether you’re searching for the best coffee in the city, a pint of locally brewed craft ale, or vintage garms, this is the place to head. All first-time visitors to the city should spend at least a few hours digging around in records shops, rummaging in the rabbit warren that is Affleck’s and seeking out the best pubs. Don’t neglect to admire the architecture – the area has been used as a stand-in for New York for many TV shows and Hollywood films.
