Well-known as up-to-date, irreverent, and portable, Time Out Shortlist guides help savvy travelers get the most out of a destination during a short stay. Compiled by Ruth Jarvis, who grew up in Manchester, this book covers the notable and the notorious in this music capital. Here are frank reviews of more than 700 hotels, restaurants, bars, museums, and sights, along with complete details about transportation, opening times, prices, and whether credit cards are accepted at each location. Special sections include an interview with Manchester’s only Michelin-starred chef, Paul Kitching, as well as coverage of the Manchester International Festival, the high-profile art event launching in 2007. No book on this increasingly popular tourist haunt would be complete without a musical history, and this one details all the legends Manchester helped make, from the Bee Gees to the Sex Pistols to the Smiths.
