The Northern Quarter is home to all that's arty and alternative in Manchester. For crafty types the Manchester Craft and Design Centre is a must see. Artists in residence include Linzi Ramsden, Lee Page Hanson and Kathryn Edwards always worth a look.

The installation Another Place by Antony Gormley features 100 figures made of cast iron. They're spread over 2 miles of beach and extend into the sea. On my visit one was sensibly wearing a lifejacket!
