Famed for its soccer team and music scene, which has produced the likes of the Smiths and Oasis, this center for sports and the arts is a down-to-earth and friendly city. The so-called Capital of the North has overcome industrial decline, bombing (in WWII and by the IRA) to become a confident and cosmopolitan city of well over two million. It is well served by a bus and light rail network. Top attractions include the Lowry art complex, arcade Affleck's Palace and Canal Street gay village.

Marie Louise Gardens is a 4.75 acre oasis of peace and seclusion in one of Manchester's most densely populated suburbs. It is situated to the south east of Palatine Road as it runs between West Didsbury and Northenden, and is adjacent to both the Blackburn Park and Albert Park conservation areas. Tucked away behind a busy main road, it is often described as a hidden gem.

I’ve never been here before but went today as part of my daily exercise and what a stunning place. There’s so much to see from the woodland walk, the River Mersey to the amazing rock garden which has to be seen. I will definitely be visiting again when the lockdown is over with friends.

A small park in the heart of the gay village, which features memorials and space to reflect. We host regular events, including Manchester Pride. The daily free tour of Manchester starts here every day at 11am, by the Alan Turing Memorial. The park is maintained by the 'Friends of Sackville Gardens'
Often visit here when in Manchester and the gay village with my partner. During pride they have acts on and food stalls and a bar. During pride August 2019 we saw a few acts including LuLu and the women from Liberty X, such a good atmosphere. The park also has a Memorial statue of Alan Turing, a memorial for victims of HIV and a carved memorial for transgender people who have lost their lives. When there are no events it’s a nice peaceful space!
