Now a Raddison Blu hotel there is not much to see except the exterior. It is however located between the Town Hall and Deansgate so if you in the area it is worth walking past just to say you have seen it for its historical connections.

The Free Trade Hall in Peter Street, Manchester, England, was a public hall constructed in 1853–56 on St Peter's Fields, the site of the Peterloo Massacre and is now a Radisson hotel. The hall was built to commemorate the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846. The architect was Edward Walters.] The hall was owned by the Manchester Corporation. It was bombed in the Manchester Blitz and its interior rebuilt. It was Manchester's premier concert venue until the construction of the Bridgewater Hall in 1996. The hall was designated a Grade II* listed building on 18 December 1963.

Marvelous Victorian building . this pllace now convert to Radisson Blu hotel.

The Free Trade Hall has been demolished. Only the impressive facade remains. Everything behind has been pulled down and replaced by the Edwardian Radisson Hotel. I remember it for Halle concerts political meetings and rock concerts. A huge loss.

I've no idea why this is listed, as all you can see is the facade on Peter St. It's a meeting point for those of a cetain age, and a stopping point for tour guides. Go down the street to the left of it, and you'll find the entrance to the Radisson. The guy from Kuwait has pasted Wikipedia word for word, so you may wish to walk 50yds to the amazing central library to check the facts. Enjoy x

The previous writer is quite correct, this IS now a hotel. But care has been taken to preserve the opulent facade and the Free Trade Hall remains an impressive building. It's just that it now has a different purpose.

We have spent many an hour or three at the Free Trade Hall.
The facilities are first-class and the seating is comfortable.
Perhaps it could be improved with a decent restaurant befor and after performances.

I came up for a long weekend and had a really good time here. The staff are very welcoming and any questions we had about where to eat they were very accommodating. The rooms are lovely and the spa is even better! Would highly recommend!
