Manchester Attractions

There's a feast of sightseeing and things to do in the central area of our city. If you want museums and art galleries there's the award-winning Museum of Science and Industry, the Manchester Museum, the refurbished Manchester Art Gallery, the Whitworth Art Gallery and the curving streamlined beauty of Urbis - a new kind of museum exploring people and cities. We also have culture in abundance. Two buildings which typify this are the Bridgewater Hall and the Royal Exchange. One is a striking modern building, home to three orchestras including the Hallé, the other is a spectacular chamber hosting one of the nation's most acclaimed theatres and companies.
