Crew tip Northern Quarter
Manchester city center
www.northernqtr.co.ukKnown as the creative quarter of Manchester. Lots of shops, cafés and bars. Affleck's Palace is a good stop, a former department store which has been turned into a multi-storey bazaar for alternative clothing and knickknacks. Shopping can be exhausting. Northern Quarter Restaurant & Bar, is a good place to fill up your enegy reserves. Great food and generous opening hours. / Llewelyn, ground crew
Passenger tip Fletcher Moss Garden
One of the best kept gardens in Manchester. Make sure to fill up the picnic basket at Barbakan Deli, another best in town. / Miles
Passenger tip The Lowry
Landmark art venue in Salford Quays. There's also a nice collection of shops and restaurants at the Lowry Plaza. Nice architecture around the place too, quite modern. It's a bit out of the way, but you get here quite easy by tram. / Michelle
