Summer Adventures: Manchester

This summer I spent a week travelling north, first stop was Manchester, a city l lived in as a student and have returned to as a visitor many times since.

I was happy to revisit the Whitworth Art Gallery and really enjoyed spending time in the cafe and visit the refurbished central library, the last time I was in the city was a few years ago.

Whitworth Gallery Cafe, Manchester

My primary reason to visit having looked up current exhibitions was to see the “Parliament of Ghosts” by Ibrahim Mahama.

It was an impressive exhibition providing a lot to think about and review I like the parliament installation made up of bus seats. The Whitworth is a lovely gallery and I enjoy coming to Manchester to visit (See my previous visits here). I also visited The Manchester art gallery, where I came across Halima Cassell exhibition “Virtues of unity” Halima is an artist and Sculptor, I really enjoyed exploring and getting to know her work.

I stayed one night at the ibis Mancherster Centre Portland Street originally booked via Booking.com it was a great location from the train station an access the city centre.
