Le logement
Used in 2019 filming of BBC Peeky Blinders : Plenty of character, high ceilings & big windows, this Grade II listed Warehouse is spacious & set in a quiet cul-de-sac. It's close to everything guests need, and surrounded by the historic buildings which helped make this part of the Worlds very first Industrial City.

Accommodation is within my home: Comfy and relaxing. Big sofa with chaise, airy and bright. Huge windows and high ceilings.

Spacious en-suite bathroom. Toiletries and big white towels are complimentary.

King sized real bed with a mix of duck feather and down quilts/ pillows - with hypo-allergenic /memory foam types.

Should you have an extra guest or wish to use the sofa as a bed then a bedding pack is available, and booked in advance.

The streets around are often used for filming, including BBC Peeky Blinders and films to capture a 1930's New York feel. The canal network runs close by which was the transport system pre-trains, along with the original coal fired power station providing the City Centre with electricity, from the Industrial Revolution onwards.

Time is precious, and I have my own tips on things to see and do, and where to eat and drink which may help guests enjoy their trip just a little more.

You won't have to worry about where to get a cup of tea or coffee either: Complimentary refreshment tray (self-serve) is all part of the welcome and ongoing hospitality during your stay.

This is a wonderful place, in a great City, and I hope to see you soon.

Accès des voyageurs
Come and go as you wish, of course. Building access is via a front door to the lobby (code) and from the lobby into the apartment area (code). Access to the apartment is with a key, and room are fitted with a safety security chain.

Access to my living space is by arrangement in advance only for use of washing machine. (Kitchen not usually available)

Autres remarques
Peeky Blinders filmed China House as the Railway Station in Birmingham in 2019.

Generally this is a quiet block, and a peaceful retreat. Noise from outside on weekend nights can sometimes be heard.

Two cats are in permanent residence - They area huge hit with many guests!

Manchester, Angleterre, Royaume-Uni

CHINA TOWN:

China Town is made up of a neat grid of streets, from Princess St which is just outside to Piccadilly Gardens. The central feature is an arch or PAIFANG which is just five mins walk from here on Faulkner Street. The Paifang was built in China following the twinning of Manchester with Wuhan City in the late 1980's, and paid for by Manchester as a gift to the Chinese community.

The Chinese community was established in the early 19thC, and expanded with an immigration boom in the 1950's. A cultural Arts centre thrives amongst the many businesses, and recently the arrival of South Asia Bank.

35m under Chinatown is a bunker, built by Nato in 1954 as part of any defence to a nuclear attack. Now used for cabling and telephonic activity.
THE GAY VILLAGE / SACKVILLE PARK:

We are 150m from Manchester's Gay Village, the main run being Canal Street with plenty of inside/ outside bars, restaurants etc. Late night area. Pedestrianised.

Sackville Park in the Village includes an International LGBTQ peace memorial and is the location used annually to mark the end of Manchester Pride, with a moving candlelit vigil (August bank holiday weekend).

A seated statue of Alan Turing OBE is in the park. His work (as father of the computer machine & its science) on code cracking during WWII was no doubt the turning point for the Battle of The Atlantic, and influential in winning the war. The statue sits in the gardens, part of the Gay Village and overlooked by his own University. He was harshly punished for being homosexual, and posthumously pardoned in 2013 by HM Queen Elisabeth II.

Some of the main University buildings are just a couple of mins away, off Whitworth St.



THE NORTHERN QUARTER (NQ):

The NQ as it now stands is a modern evolution. Since the 1990's gentrification of the area into a bohemian, artsy, hub of independent businesses. In it's earlier days the area had some affluence (Oldham Street) and some abject poverty (Angel Meadows) with the area becoming largely a textile district. In 1912, at it's peak the Manchester cotton mills produced 7,600 km2 of fabric.

Notable now for dozens of eateries and a friendly funky vibe, you may end up in the Abel Heywood. Named after a former Lord Mayor of Manchester who was credited with publishing the One Penny novel and spreading these across the country. John Wesley the Methodist Minister opened two Wesleyan chapels in the NQ.

St ANN'S SQUARE, THE CORN EXCHANGE, SELFRIDGES & HARVEY NICHOLLS:

Pedestrianised smart-ish shopping, 'global' brand eateries and high street amenities engulf this area. The Royal Exchange Theatre sits in the middle.

St Anns has become synonymous with where Manchester remembers those 22 innocents killed by a terrorist bomb on May 22 2017 - very close the Corn Exchange where the IRA set off a bomb in 1996 destroying that part of the City.

WE STAND UNITED. WE STAND UNITED: Meaning the City pulls together against terror. You will see a clock in my home which is stopped at the time the arena bomb went off in May 2107 in memorium.

MARKET STREET & PICCADILLY GARDENS:

A central hub for trams and busses, regular street markets, The Arndale shopping Centre and regular essentials shopping. Largely unpleasant to look at and a means to an end. A shame on our City Council for getting this area so wrong, so repeatedly.

OTHER AREAS:

SPINNING FIELDS, DEANSGATE AND BUSINESS DISTRICTS:

Spinnginfields is the home to Manchester Banking community, and larger accountancy and law firms. Some excellent eateries, very modern in architecture, and a World within a City. Deans gate is the main artery slicing Manchester from Salford technically. Explore in and around this street for little gems, and very old Manchester, such as Parsonage, Castlefiled, Hanging Ditch and the river / canal crossings.

TOWN HALL, CENTRAL LIBRARY AND PETER STREET:

St Peters square, close to my place now has a New York feel to it with crisp modern buildings against Victorian splendour and Edwardian solidity. The new tramways converge her, backing onto the restored Central Library, a superb facility embracing archive with tech', and new uses for 'Library' abound. The Library is behind the Town Hall and Albert Square. Take a look inside, especially the State Rooms. If the clock tower tours are on, then do it! 2nd largest bell to Big Ben. Peter street has the historic memory of Peter St riots in the 1800's. The Midland Hotel presides over the head of the street, as Manchester's original 'Grande Dame' of establishments. The Albert Hall (Halle orchestra) and Grand Central convention centre are close to hand, the latter being part of the Great Northern Railway buildings, now an entertainment complex.

Hello. I'm Mark. I like to think Manchester adopted me in 2001, having previously lived and worked in London, Brighton, Wales and the Midlands. I felt at home and was drawn here by the down to earth nature and warmth of Manchester people. The City has again become a powerhouse (as it was in the late 1800's) and has noticeably thrived since the 2002 Commonwealth Games, which was a defining moment in moving on up. When I moved here just 1000 people actually lived in this postcode. Now that number is 10,000! I walk everywhere in town - most places are within a 20 min walk. The architecture of the Industrial Revolution is all around, and another reason why I live here. My place is within a handsome Grade II listed Warehouse c1910. The area includes a Victorian coal fired power station, with its impressive chimney, canal-side loading bays, and distinct red brick and sandstone construction. With an upbringing abroad and much travel since, my place is home to a collection of prints, paintings, collectibles, photo's and furniture. Don't hesitate to ask if you want an explanation of anything that catches your eye. You may need local knowledge on where to go, what to do and see, including some less obvious gems. Happy to help. There are very distinct 'quarters' and districts to enjoy, and Manchester people do know how to party if that's your thing. Recommendations come a plenty, whether you are here on business, or taking time out to enjoy Manchester. Being a naturally hospitable type, I'm keen to make sure you have as much or as little guidance, recommendations, hints and tips on enjoying the place as you wish. That includes the low down on the all important eateries, cafes, bars, nightlife and shopping that have become hallmarks of the UK's unofficial second City. You are very welcome in my home, and whatever brings you here, I hope to make your stay a very memorable one.
