The Most Instagrammable Locations In Manchester

Molly Raby January 14, 2023

Let’s face it, we’re all addicted to Instagram. We love to post a cheeky selfie or let everyone see what swanky restaurant meal we’ve ordered. But, sometimes, we want to take Instagram back to its basic function and post a really great image. So, here are some of the most Instagrammable locations in and around Manchester.

Northern Quarter

Manchester’s Northern Quarter is the hub of life in this city. Filled with quirky cafes, booming bars, live music events and independent shops, it is the place to be.

Everywhere you look, there is something to do, with interesting people around every corner.

You don’t need to look for actual art to find beauty in these streets; it is simply everywhere.

However, there are also dedicated art pieces dotted around the Northern Quarter which would truly spruce up your Instagram page. Artists such as LostHills, Lei-Mai LeMaow and Aske are all featured throughout the city.

Manchester Christmas Markets

Everyone loves a good Christmas market! During December, every major city has their own version of a Christmas market, usually decked out with local independent stores, Christmas shops, festive drinks and more.

These are the ideal places to get a great Instagram picture, with lights, holly hats and maybe even snow…if you’re lucky.

In 2022, Manchester’s Christmas markets were named as the ‘most Instagrammable’ in the whole of the UK. So, don’t just take our word for it, this is scientifically proven *wink*.

Canal Street

Canal Street in Manchester is rich with LGBTQ+ history. It is the designated ‘Gay Village’ of the city and home to a large strip of pubs, clubs and events.

There are several places to snap the perfect picture down these streets. From the stunning canal decorated with pride flags, to pictures with the local drag queens and even the staple ‘Welcome to Manchester Gay Village’ sign. There are multiple Instagrammable places here so don’t miss out.

These are among the most Instagrammable locations in Manchester so grab your phone and head on down.
