Architecture: City centre
Original, modern, classical and gothic. Discover a selection of Manchester's architectural gems on a walk through the city centre. Instead of passing our great buildings with hardly a glance, take a little time to have a proper look at the 1930s classical/art deco Central Library, the romantic spires of the Town Hall, the Venetian palazzos of Cottonopolis and the decorated excesses of The Midland Hotel.
Manchester's architecture mirrors it's growth and some of our best buildings tell the story of the city. They stand in proud confidence around the centre. Take some time to have a look and hear their stories
