Venues and Green Spaces

Mayfield Park

Mayfield Park opens this September, marking Manchester’s first new city center public park in more than 100 years. The 6.5-acre park lies adjacent to Piccadilly Station and features open greens, an urban square, floodable meadows and biodiverse ecological areas by the river. Mayfield Park also includes sheltered areas and more rugged greenery to provide visitors with a wide variety of environments.


Castlefield Viaduct

This recently opened, former train line now serves as an urban park. Similar to New York’s High Line, the Grade II-listed Castlefield Viaduct underwent a great transformation thanks to the National Trust. This July, the National Trust opened half of the 330-meter viaduct to the public as part of a phase-one trial. Further plans to open the rest of the viaduct are in process.

Band on the Wall

Manchester’s oldest music venue, dating back to the 19th century, expanded, inviting guests to explore its new interior. After reopening its door in March, the 500-capacity venue now features a new bar and a smaller, 80-capacity stage for more intimate performances. Band on the Wall also recently partnered with This Charming Naan to serve guests 100-percent, plant-based naans, calzones and small plates.

New Century Hall

Slated to reopen this September, New Century Hall underwent extensive restorations to accommodate its 800-capacity space. New Century Hall boasts a sprung dance floor and 1960s-style disco ceiling. Having hosted great artists like Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones, New Century Hall continues to wow guests with its restored accompanying food and drinks space. Two-time Great British Menu winner Adam Reid joins the venue through a new concept called The Butty Shop, serving delicious food and drinks to guests.




Maray comes to Manchester, bringing its famous Middle-Eastern flavors and recipes to Albert Square. Originally based in Liverpool, Maray’s newest restaurant in Manchester marks its largest restaurant to date and its fourth restaurant overall. Guests can now enjoy Maray’s acclaimed disco cauliflower and innovative cocktails in Manchester.

Peter Street Kitchen also boasts its new and exclusive residency with Whispering Angel, the renowned Provençal rosé from Château d’Esclans.



Kampus, Manchester’s newest neighborhood, takes the title as Manchester’s foodie hot spot, featuring a wide variety of eateries and breweries. Recent openings in Kampus include Nell’s New York Pizza and the renowned bakery, Pollen. Local brewery Cloudwater also opens their new Beer House, while The Beeswing invites guests to enjoy its all-day eatery and wine bar. Don’t forget to try some of Northern Pie and Co.’s award-winning pies, marking another exciting addition to the area.



Forty Seven

This luxury, 5-star boutique hotel will soon grace Peter Street in the heart of the city by the end of 2022. Forty Seven features 32 bedrooms, as well as luxury one- and two-bedroom suites. Guests will enjoy a fine-dining experience at the hotel’s on-site restaurant, Asha’s, and craft cocktails at The Peterman.

Hotel Hassler Review

Upon arriving in Rome, I was delighted to return to the magical Hotel Hassler Roma for the first time in 20 years, in part because the hotel enjoys an iconic location adjacent to Roman landmarks: the 16th-century Trinita dei Monte Church, Villa Borghese and the Spanish Steps, where the Piazza Spagna welcomes the world and near chic fashion boutiques on Via dei Condotti. Owner, president and general manager Roberto E. Wirth, the fifth generation of a famous Swiss hotelier dynasty, made Hotel Hassler Roma an icon in the international 5-star hotel scene.
