The town hall is very impressive to look at, but it is closed for renovations and will not be open for visitors before 2024. We came here to take the "hop-on, hop-off" bus which has its starting point from here.

This square is the heart of the city and is the centrepiece to which all visitors to the city must be brought. It encompasses a lot of the Manchester charm - beautiful architecture, interesting sculptures/statues, open areas for public gatherings. As a resident of the...More
