Pocket Guide: Manchester Canal Street Hotels

Manchester is one of the UK's greatest and most exciting cities, built on the wealth brought by the Industrial Revolution, in which it played a leading role. Arkwright's revolutionary new spinning machines, driven by steam, transformed the landscape and the lives of millions of people throughout the region. Cotton made Manchester, and the scene was set for its appointment with industrial destiny as soon as Flemish weavers settled in Bolton in the 14th Century.

The city never looked back, and even today it lovingly cherishes its great industrial heritage in museums such as the Museum of Science and Industry. Manchester has changed since its industrial heyday, however, and when you stay at a Manchester hotel you can see that this is nowhere more so than on famous Canal Street.

Hotels in Manchester for a Gay Day on Canal Street

Outside of the capital, Canal Street is the biggest centre for LGBT (lesbian, gay, transsexual and transgender) people in the UK. It's a fun and colourful part of the city, as you'd expect, and is known locally as Gay Village. There's always something going on here, and apart from festivities throughout the year Canal Street plays host to Manchester Pride, the most successful even of its kind in the UK. During the rest of the year you can catch The Skins Weekend, the Bears Bash and Sparkle as well as other popular events, and there are dedicated venues that cater for gay women, so nobody ever feels excluded here.

Fun Along Canal Street from Manchester Hotels

Visitors come to Canal Street from around the world to enjoy not only the clubs and festivals but also the busy sports and social groups which have their base here. It's just a fun place to be, with never a dull moment.

Canal Street runs along the side of Rochdale Canal and is completely pedestrianised, so it's a good street for a stroll in semi-rural surroundings. When you come here from your Manchester hotel or guesthouse you're assured a warm welcome in the many gay restaurants and bars, whatever your persuasion may be.
