Apart from visiting the city for various Party Conferences over recent months, I've not had time to 'be a tourist' in Manchester for years; and was duly very impressed with all the city has to offer ...
... specific highlights (in no particular order) being:
- the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI)
- the John Rylands Library (stunning mixture of old and new architecture - pictured here)
- Manchester Art Gallery - the Raqib Shaw exhibition was absolutely fascinating
- Manchester Chinatown - great for just wandering around
And we also visited some good Manga shops (for Junior, of course!) and frequented some nice eateries (for me!) ... a good weekend had by all :-)
Most enjoyable aspect though, was catching up with many friends - old and new - from our time living in that part of the world in the late eighties/early nineties :-))
