City Guide – Fabulous Foodie Things To Do in Manchester

Looking for things to do in Manchester?

There is so much amazing food and drink in Manchester City and surrounds, the vast majority is independent restauranteurs, cafes, chefs, cookery schools and foodies. Hand in hand with the regeneration of the city has gone a food revolution, and you can find everything from street food, cuisines from every corner of the globe and vegan cafes alongside speciality roast coffee and Thai food to die for.

These arrivals have transformed the economy, the culture and the foodie landscape of the region. This can be seen from Manchester’s “curry mile” in Rusholme, its Chinatown, the vibrant Northern Quarter, the “gay village” along Canal St, and many East European delicatessens as well as the increase in cookery schools, offering travellers the opportunity to learn how to cook from from around the world.
