The gardens are a hidden gem, next to the university. I have even missed them the first time. But they are very beautiful. A place to relax and to enjoy

Right in the middle of the city, this is a lovely little park including a statute to the great Alan Turing. Enjoy a little green diversion and the peace.

Here is the national HIV memorial along with a statue of the great Allan Turin. So much history and respect to be shown in one small Park. Well with a visit, if your in Manchester.
