The Heart of it All

Hotels in Manchester City Centre

Centrally Located Hotels in Manchester

Architecturally significant buildings, galleries and museums, shops that celebrate local makers, and world-class restaurants and bars: you’ll find them all here in Manchester’s City Centre. The Kimpton Clocktower Hotel is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring the area, whether for an hour or for an afternoon. Browse for souvenirs at St. Ann’s Square, post up at a LGBTQ bar in the Gay Village, or check out the latest exhibition at The Portico Library, a historic building that’s open to the public for free. And be sure to note the bees rendered in the mosaics at Manchester Town Hall; the insects have been a symbol of the city since the Industrial Revolution, and today they’re a visual reminder of the city’s hardworking—as in, worker-bee—attitude and ethic.
