If there’s one criticism I have of Manchester it’s that sometimes it’s hard to find a quiet spot in the city centre. I love the hustle, bustle and music of the city, but sometimes I just want somewhere a little more peaceful to eat my lunch or get lost in a book. You wouldn’t think it given the location, but actually one of my favourite places to relax on my lunch hour is by the cenotaph in front of the Town Hall.
If ever anyone tells me that Manchester doesn’t have its fair share of beautiful buildings, I will always point them in the direction of the Town Hall – you could walk around it every day and see it from a new angle every time.
It’s a great place to take photos when the weather is moody and miserable but I can’t wait for it to start warming up again so I can enjoy it in the sunshine.
