Jennie McAlpine's Top 5

Coronation Street favourite and owner of Annies, Jennie shares her favourite things to do in Manchester.

1.

Annies

I might be biased, but our customers agree, Annies offers a comfy, cosy environment where you can enjoy a lovely cup of tea, a tasty breakfast, a nice Sunday roast or a nice scone like my nanna used to make. More info

2.

Coronation Street The Tour

I'm very proud to be part of Coronation Street and for a limited time only visitors can go on the Coronation Street tour which I have been on and everyone I talk to raves about it. (Open until 4 October, 2014) More info

3.

Go to the theatre

We have a proud history of theatres in Manchester and I love, love to go to them. Check out the Royal Exchange, Opera House, Palace Theatre and Contact Theatre. More info

4.

John Rylands Library

Manchester has fabulous architecture. John Rylands Library is a great example of this, with a great mix of old and new, plus it's so peaceful. More info

5.

Shopping at Manchester Arndale

I love a good shop and I think we have some great shops in Manchester. I'm a big fan of the Arndale, particularly the Arndale Market - the handbag stall is one of my favourites. More info
