Vintage Clothing Kilo Sale

I had previously heard about Garage Sales and Backyard sales in movies and stories (If my memory is not failing me ­čśŤ ), but hearing about the Vintage Sale about to take place on the 31st of January hosted by the Manchester Metropolitan University, made me lock my dates for visiting it. So, a friend…

Printworks, Manchester

Printworks as the name suggests would bring to your mind words such as ‘newspapers’ , ‘journalism’, ‘magazines’ etc. ┬áAt least, that is what I thought Printworks was all about until I was told that it is everything but ‘print’. It is one of the leading Entertainment arcades. It hosts inside its beautiful walls a number…

Cafe de Conscience

http://goo.gl/w9cpE0 While walking back with a friend from Salford to Victoria Station, she mentioned to me about this really cool juice parlour she wanted to visit and was on the way.

Mamucium: The Lost Roman Fortress

Mamucium is the name of the Lost Fort of the Romans in the Castlefield area of Manchester. It is hard to believe that in the backdrop of the modern Beetham Tower, the tallest tower of the city, there can lie the ancient ruins of a Roman Fortress. To be honest, not much is left to…

Manchester Cathedral

I have been to the Manchester Cathedral thrice since I have moved here. For the first few weeks of my stay in the city, the Cathedral was just a beautiful place which I used to pass by on my way to College. I first saw the Cathedral up close on a Historic Tour organised by…

Hasty Tasty Pizza
