Conveniently located only minutes away from Manchester’s bustling Piccadilly Train Station, the Northern Quarter is known for being the city’s quirkiest district. Packed full of cool cafés, award-winning bars, boutique shops, and indie arts venues, this compact cluster of streets is a haven for young professionals and start-ups looking to set up shop in one of the UK’s most popular cities.
Unlike Manchester’s bustling shopping district, which primarily consists of the famous Arndale Centre, the Northern Quarter boasts a handful of calm oases. Busy office workers looking to take some time out can simply skip to one of its tiny, tucked-away cafés for an artisan coffee and a breather.
The Northern Quarter’s proximity to the city centre also means there are plenty of opportunities to impress partners, clients and new employees at one of Manchester’s many five-star restaurants or cultural attractions. Fans of theatre, for example, are only a short walk away from the grand Royal Exchange Theatre, which houses an excellent bar and forum area. Football fans, on the other hand, may wish to take a quick trip out to the city’s Football Museum to find out everything there is to know about the Beautiful Game.
In terms of transport, Manchester is very well-served by a regular tram service, known as the Metrolink (or simply ‘The Met’ to locals). Trams extend far out into Manchester’s suburbs and are very frequent, allowing workers to enjoy an easy and pleasant commute. The city’s major national train stations – Piccadilly and Victoria – are also very well-connected, offering routes to cities all over the UK. Its London service is particularly efficient, promising to transport Mancunians to the Big Smoke in just over two hours.
In terms of office space, the Northern Quarter is full of cool buildings ready and waiting for the business leaders of tomorrow. Our serviced offices, for example, offer a host of excellent features including café/bars, showers, staffed receptions, unbeatable kitchen facilities, and much more.
