You can make inroads to cultural corridor. Notorious for its very loud traffic, Oxford Road still packs in so many galleries, museums and shows that the residents talk of it as the city’s ‘cultural corridor’. At the northern end of the main road linking the centre to the south of the city is Cornerhouse, the city’s famous contemporary art complex, while at the other is the red-brick Whitworth Art Gallery. In between are the theatres, the Manchester Museum and the University of Manchester’s campus, a square of Gothic buildings designed by the known architect Alfred Waterhouse.
The Warehouse Project is a yearly season of parties of huge proportions – has been named the ‘biggest thing to happen to clubbing in this city this decade’. Running for three months (September to New Year’s Eve), the Project features some of the hugest names in dance and electronic music alongside smaller, edgier, indie acts. With an enthusiastic crowd, as well as the old-school feelings of its hidden underground location, it’s no wonder tickets scarcely sell out. If you’re in Manchester in the autumn, this is one not to be missed.
