A bit disjointed with the raised tram stop and I came from the Town Hall side which is a bit of an eyesore as it's currently being renovated.

This is the home of the excellent cenotaph and the memorial gardens. On the other side you must seek out the statue of Emmeline Pankhurst, one of the best I witnessed in Manchester.

We wanted to explore Manchester and that was one of the places that we ended up. We did foolish things in the middle of the night.

This is a large square with many grand buildings around like the Midland, central library and town hall. It is also a major tram hub in the city.

This has had a facelift and although it is always busy with workers and tourists it manages to be clean and the war memorial is always well kept. Mostly used as a walk through but there is also a tram stop which is well situated for that part of town.

The Square is a nice enough space. It is open, close to the Town Hall, the Central Library on the West and the Manchester Art Gallery and Chinatown on the North. It is also a Metrolink hub with all f the Metrolink lines passing through it. Nice and central as a start point for any sightseeing you want to so in the centre. The free bus also stops nearby, on Charlotte Street just to the east of the High Street intersection.

If you usually just travel through on the tram it might be worth while an hour of your time stopping off to explore this city square. If you haven’t been here for a while there are changes. The tram stop has been enlarged, with a new route going around the town hall for a more direct route towards Victoria via Exchange Square. The war memorial has been moved from one side of the square to another and now seems far more impressive without being domineering. One whole side of the square has been demolished and completely redeveloped. The town hall is closed for massive upgrading but the circular central library is still open and remains a delight with the archives and cafe easily accessible, with a lovely children’s area downstairs (stairs or lift access). I always enjoy walking through the square. There always seems to be activity but it never feels too full as can happen in similar places in London.

Look beyond the tram stop, which dominates on first sight, and you’ll see several interesting things. The Grand a hotel is a gorgeous building, the central library is worth a look at inside and out, there is a large war memorial and, coming in December, there are super large light installations! A spacious area with seating too.

With the introduction of the trams I feel this is now more a transport hub rather than a square. Still flanked with impressive buildings

Lots of bars and restaurants, we ate at Wagamama. This place feels like the central hub of Manchester, everything spreads out from here. There is a tram station as well and some interesting sights as well as shopping in the area. The weather in July was unpredictable so recommend taking an umbrella.

A modern pleasent square with benches, trees, monuments, a Pankhurst statue, pretty buildings, a few OK restaurants, and a busy tram stop. Good meeting spot or place to sit for 20 minutes. Lots of hidden history in this square.
