spenderpenny's City Tips

  • Visit the Barton Arcade its small but perfectly formed
  • Don't bother with a Taxi the traffic will only slow you down.
  • Market street is the main high street but its a nightmare to walk down so avoid it and see more of the city.
  • Be careful of the Trams crossing.
  • Use the Arndale if its raining, its a good covered walk through the city.
  • The city is small so you can walk across it very easily.
  • Luck Lust Liquor and Burn
    Restaurants (Mexican, Central American)

    This is a great bar serving beer by the stein (2 pinter) and offers cracking hot wings and burgers coupled with great trailer trash fries. And that's just the bar go upstairs to the restaurant and its a bigger choice.
