5 Hidden Gems in Manchester

The Curry Mile

Fancy something hot and spicy? There is a street in Manchester where you'll get just that. Wilmslow Road, or known to the locals as 'the curry mile' is a vibrant street packed full of neon covered curry houses and bars. Whether its for a sit down meal or a drink after work you'll get your kick on 'the curry mile'.

The Sip Club

I don't think you could get more hidden than this place. Guess it's ironic that we're even writing about it, so, keep it shhhh ay!

Located above an estate agents and without a sign lies an awarding winning bar serving food and beer. You can not help but feel like you're in someone's front room with this place, but, you'll find a friend in the southern Manchester punters!

The Vintage Beauty Parlour

In Chorlton (Bus journey away from the centre) nestled in between terrace houses and set-up in an old newsagents is a beauty parlour. Vintage by location, name and practice! You can get your hair and make-up done in some true vintage styles!

St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church

Named "Manchester's Hidden Gem" on it's website and named 'a hidden gem' number 17 in a list "29 things to do in Manchester recommend by the locals" on METRO how could we not feature it in our article.

What exactly is it and why is it a gem? In fact, why is it hidden if it's a church? You may be asking.. Well, this 200 year old Catholic Church is located near Albert Square, with marble columns and the critical claimed Adams Station of The Cross are just a few of the wonders inside.

Manchester Museum


Last on the list is something that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. The Manchester Museum is attached to the University Building. From a Victorian cow and stuffed animals to Egyptian mummies and ancient artifacts this museum has it all.
