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

(MAYBE NOT SO MUCH HIDDEN - JUST MORE GEM)

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.
