Yes a bit, also industrial harbour cities with lots of redevelopment and new buildings. But Manchester is typical British, so partly reminds a bit of London as well.

JOHN RYLANDS LIBRARY:

John Ryland Library is a historical library, housed in a dark and beautiful Victorian neo-gothic stone building. It is situated on Deansgate, a major street in the heart of Manchester, and is open to public. The building, designed by Basil Champneys, was completed in 1899, and the library opened in 1900. It was founded by Enriqueta Augustina Rylands in memory of her husband, John Rylands. The interior is very dark with many wooden panels. It is said to have inspired the Hogwarts school in Harry Potter. You can find a copy of the Gutenberg bible, the first edition of Ulysees by James Joyce and Papyrus P52, the earliest extant of the New Testament text. In the basement you find historical toilets, and the building feature several stained glass windows, as well as a modern annex that is incorporated into the old building. Realistic portraits, creatures and mythical symbols are carved in the building's Yorkshire and Cumbrian stone material. The Rylands Gallery features 1.4 million items. The Crawford and Spencer rooms consist of rare books and items, bought from these families by Enriqueta Rylands.

THE PRINTWORKS:
- Hard Rock Café, Exchange Square

The Printworks is a former industrial building complex that was turned into a really nice entertainment and restaurants complex, with neon lights and high dark passages that make it looks like night, even daytime. It is situated at Exchange Square, next to Corporation St. Here you find UK:s second largest Hard Rock Café. In this 2-storey branch you find clothes, guitars and other equipment used by Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Kiss, Slayer, Anthrax and more. You also find the largest ODEON cinema in the UK, theatres, night blubs, restaurants and cafés.

The transformation of this derilict Printworks building was part of the redevelopment of Manchester after the 1996 IRA bombing. It was the largest newspaper printing house from 1929 to 1986.

Haha, sounds scarry, didn't know that! The architect, who lives inside the skyscraper, must have made some mistake. You can find pics of Beetham Tower in previous posts.

PICCADILLY GARDENS:
- City Tower, Market Street, Monument to Queen Victoria

Piccadilly Gardens is a large square and gardens in the heart of Manchester. and traffic hub for the yellow trams and the blue double deckers. At Piccadilly Gardens you find a lot of sculpture and fountains, such as the Monument to Queen Victoria and the Wellington statue. The modernist 30-storey, 107m tall City Tower, built in 1965, is situated right next to the square. It is currently the 3rd tallest building in Manchester (2016), next to it stands the futuristic "hanging" Mercure Hotel. You can also find a lot of pubs in the area, and street musicians. During our visit there was a nice food market on the square. The hip Northern Quarter neighbourhood begins here, as well as the road Piccadilly, where you find the Piccadilly railway station. In 2001 the square was reconstructed by Leslie Jones Architects. During my visit Piccadilly Gardens was under renovation, so the large fountains, the gardens, the sculpture were not visible and the 53m high high ferris wheel called the Wheel of Manchester, was sadly enough demolished in 2015. So no opportunities there to take great skyline photos for us.
There are lot of obscure types in this area, especially after dark, such as homeless people, drunk youngster and drug dealers, so beware!
The shopping street called Market Street begins at Piccadilly Gardens, where you find department stores such as Debenhams. There is a really charming second hand store near the square, that sell everything from rare books and records to vintage toys!

Thanks for the tour of a city I missed in my 3 week car trip around the British Isles in 1985.

The tallest building in the city, I've seen these similar-designed buildings in any number of cities. We even have one of those in Las Vegas at our City Center complex, a 47 story Mandarin Hotel. I certainly don't find the design attractive at all, it always does a job on my eyes to look at these buildings, and I'm hoping we're finally seeing the last of those!

Are you refering to City tower (the white/glass modernist one at Piccadilly Gardens) or Beetham tower (the sleek new skyscraper shown in the pictures below)? Personally I like the design of Beetham tower.

NORTHERN QUARTER:
- Stevenson Square, Hatters Hostel, Newton Street, Oldham Street

Northern Quarter is a hip neighbourhood in central Manchester, created as part of the 1990s bohemic gentrification. It is situated just North of Piccadilly Gardens, centered around Oldham Street. Here you find mural paintings, graffiti, record stores, sci fi stores, hip cafés, nightclubs, tattoo studios and rock pubs and bars such as Cane & Grain. Mostly situated in renovated historical buildings. Stevenson Square is the heart of the Northern Quarter. Affleck's, a bazaar style market in a former department store, can be found in the neighbourhood, on Oldham St. It features many independent and rock stores.

FOOTBALL MUSEUM:
- Urbis Bldg, Exchange Square, Corporation St

At Exchange Square, next to Corporation St in the heart of Manchester, you find the National Football Museum inside the futuristic Urbis concrete and glass building, that was built in 2002 and designed by Ian Simpson. The football museum moved here from Preston in 2012, since the city museum that the Urbis housed was closed. With several famous football teams, Manchester United and Manchester City are the most wellknown, it feels natural with a football museum here. The building has 6 floors and consists of green glass panels on a diagonal shape. There is a diagonal glass elevator inside. In front of the entrance there is a football walk of fame. The building is a symbol of the degeneration after the 1996 IRA bombing.
Exhibitions, statues, trophies, multimedia displays, memorablia, historic footballs and games can be found inside the building. George Best's football shirt and Mini Cooper are on display, just like The oldest surviving FA Cup trophy and the football used in the 1930 World Cup Final. Zlatan's (currently in MU) biography is for sale. There is a statue of Michael Jackson and mascots from games like the "Ciao! Italia". And best of all; the entrance is free!

MANCHSTER BY NIGHT:
- Stevenson Square, Hatters Hostel, Newton Street, Oldham Street

Manchester has a vibrant nightlife, one of the best in the UK. Famous bands as the Smiths, Oasis, Stone Roses, Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays and more derives from the area. Vibrant nightclubs, bars and pubs can be found all over, with the emphasis on the alternative scene. In the 80s, the Factory night club was a very famous venue and independent record label for British rock music. It has reopened as FAC251.
Some buildings on the skyline are illuminated at night, such as the Beetham tower (Manchester's tallest skyscraper), the historic Town Hall and some bridges.
Manchester after dark is quite unsafe, so I stuck to visit the blocks aroudn the hotel (Hatters on Newton St); Northern Quarter and Piccadilly Gardens, which are the foremost entertainment districts.
Printworks is a former industrial building that was turned into a really nice entertainment and restaurants complex, with neon lights and high dark passages that make it looks like night, even daytime. Here you find UK:s largest Hard Rock Café.

I don't think it's particularly dangerous at night, no more so than other big UK cities anyway. Certainly all of the city centre, Oxford Road University corridor etc where all the nightlife is located is fine, I've spent many a night wandering around different districts with no problems though you will find the occasional dodgy character.

If you go further out from the Northern quarter away from the city centre into the 'still to be regenerated' areas you will find some not too pleasant places but there is nothing there anyway except low income housing and warehouses.

It was quite okay to go out at night, but just got a feeling it was not very safe because of some shady persons, and from what I read about Piccadilly Gardens (that it should be avoided after dark). But I'm sure Manchester is safer then many other cities in Britain and Sweden for example.
