Annie Lennox's Top 5

Global music star Annie Lennox tells us the Top 5 things she loves to do when she visits Manchester.


The Lowry

It's a place where you see a diverse range of things from theatre performance to original artwork from L.S Lowry himself. It's truly exceptional.


Northern Quarter

It's a really vibrant place, full of diverse artists, craftsman and lovely little funky cafes.


Canal Street

It is irreverent, it's hugely gay and it's fabulous. It shows to me the inclusive, celebratory spirit of Manchester.


The Curry Mile

If you're hungry you'll enjoy the assortment of great food and if you feel like spending some money on some bling it's the best place to go.


The Lowry Hotel

I've been lucky enough to stay here on my visits to the area and it has the most beautiful bar and fabulous restaurant. I could live at The Lowry Hotel.
