The Anonymous Widower

At Last A Decent Map Of Manchester!

After asking about six Mancunians, where Spinningfields was on Day 26, so I could have supper in the Carluccio’s there, I was finally directed to this map by a young Polish woman.

Manchester City Centre Map

I thought all my prayers had been answered.  Until I realised that the You Are Here sticker is in the wrong place! I mean if the Council mapmakers don’t know their city, how can the good people of Manchester get to know it? On the other hand, they perhaps don’t walk at all, except to get into the car!

After an excellent meal, I then had the problem of finding Piccadilly station.  There are quite a few finger posts, but none indicated the station where most people arrive at  and leave the city by train.

Perhaps, it’s a rather dark plot to entrap tourists and visitors, so they have to spend a night in a hotel!

Luckily, I found a couple of policemen in Piccadilly Gardens and they showed me the quickest escape route to the station. When I said that I found Liverpool so much easier to visit, they both agreed with me!

  1. I live in Manchester, and spent a day there with a friend from Australia a few weeks ago. We struggled to find Carluccio’s in Spinningfield as well.

    • I was in Sheffield today. Proper maps and a tram system that is passenger friendly and goes where visitors want to.
