Rediscover Manchester

Rediscover the best places to eat and drink in Manchester, plus activities, businesses, charities, and more…

Welcome, to the centre of the universe. From Manchester with love...

A warm welcome to I Love MCR.

Our skies may be grey but our city is vibrant and our people are as warm and friendly as they come.

Manchester always seems to be growing, with the added feeling that something exciting is just about to happen round the corner.

Manchester is the UK’s second city, but taking first prize as the most creative city in the world and the vanguard of world first innovations. We know about its colourful football clubs, its wonder-wall of great music, its contribution to both Marxism and free trade. We know it served as host to the birth of industry.

Contrary to popular belief, however, Manchester is not divided into quarters. It’s a diverse array of urban areas and districts – Greater Manchester is a sprawling pie-shaped constellation of boroughs and towns that stretch from Stockport in the south to Rochdale in the north. 

With the help of I Love Manchester, you can explore places, businesses, charities, properties to rent and for sale, jobs and what’s on in Manchester.

You will discover the city’s diverse communityculture and lifestyle with the help of our inspiring Manchester news.

Manchester is a city inhabiting a diverse pool of interesting individuals and extraordinary people. An embracing community and a social spirit feed an eclectic mix of retail, theatres, galleries, museums, and a smorgasbord of top restaurants, buzzing bars, hospitable hotels and exciting events.

Creative industries and independent manufacturers are on the rise, while tech start-ups are sprawling across the city. Meet the Manchester businesses – the makers and doers whose ingenuity is driving the new mechanisms of progress.

Embrace the city’s spontaneous spirit and you’ll discover plenty of hidden gems – and some secrets – among our Manchester stories and recommendations.
