A day in Castlefield, Manchester

With the folks visiting from London, we thought we’d spend a day locally in Castlefield, Manchester. And although threatening to rain, the sun came out at the right moments and we managed to enjoy an afternoon lunching and strolling.

We headed for lunch first, al fresco at The Wharf, Castlefield, Manchester. And what a lunch it was! As I was too distracted with eating, drinking and chatting in the sun, I’m afraid I didn’t get many foodie shots except this one…

Mancoolian Awards – Vote for me

Saturday Night in the Northern Quarter – a review of Kosmonaut, Manchester

At a lose end on a Saturday evening, hungry, thirsty and not wanting to spend too much money – we thought we’d give Kosmonaut, Manchester in the Northern Quarter, a try. I’d heard some good things about it and wanted to find out for myself.

It’s what an evening out in the Northern Quarter promises: cool, hip and a bit off the wall – just what we fancied. When we walked in, it immediately felt very chilled and I fell in love with the loft-style red-brick walls, floorboards, exposed pipes and kitchen tiles. The interior is right-up-my-street and totally the New York-style loft-living that I wish was my reality.
