We stayed in the central business district of Manchester and did a fair amount of walking around. There are a lot of fantastic restaurants in Manchester including the Corn Exchange where they film the British TV show called Million Pound Menu, which is a reality competition for restaurant entrepreneurs. Sadly, we didn't have the time to try the so many good options. The photo below shows some of the historic sidewalk dining at the Old Wellington and Sinclair's Oyster Bar which are in a part of town known as Shambles Square.

Just around the corner from Shambles Square, is Manchester Cathedral. This church was celebrating it's 600th anniversary and was founded in 1421 as the St Mary's Church in Manchester. It has a rich history and while we were touring, they were rehearsing for a rock opera.

Now, recall that up in Scotland, I posted about the popularity of deep fried Mars Bars. Well, in Manchester the thing was "Deep fried Oreo" - Wow!

We also got to meet an long-time family friend up in Manchester at the "Curry Mile". We went to the top-rated Indian restaurants in the area. The food was okay, but the company was great!
