Manchester Deansgate – Wednesday 12th July 2017

The second store in Manchester is much larger than the one in the Arndale – and much grander!   The store’s website informs me that Deansgate is “the biggest bookshop in the North of England”.  It has rooms off the main building with sign-boards above the door and stocks over 80,000 books!  I particularly loved the colourful children’s department and the funky cafe (sadly no time for a cuppa).

We were going to have a meal in the Printworks which is, as the name suggests, the site of a former newspaper publisher, but as our friend couldn’t make it we went back to our hotel.   It’s an area we love though, so here’s a photo from our visit in 2014!
