Hotel for Manchester Gay Pride


What is it?

Manchester Gay Pride is maybe not that well known, but according to Nighttours it is one of the best in Europe ! All bars and clubs are located in the Gay Village around Canalstreet. During pride the whole block is sealed off.

What to expect

The Gay Village is a block of about 3x3 streets where most of the gay bars and clubs are located. Most of the bars are very large. There are packed street parties outside the main bars every day. Drinks are only sold only inside the bars, but you can take them outside.

There is a large outdoor stage set up, with lots of acts and performances from Friday night till Monday.

The main Saturday party is usually Uni Challenge, which consists of something like 7 areas.
Besides that there are several more dance and after parties, and also some leather and fetish parties during the weekend.

The gay village can only be accessed during pride weekend with a wristband, part of the money goes to charity. The wristband only access also keeps the area more safe.

The Parade is on Saturday afternoon. Best point to view it is on Princess street near Canal Street, there most gay guys will watch.

Check out our video section to get a better idea of what Manchester gay pride weekend is like.


You can buy weekend wristband in advance (usually about 15 pounds), or buy a day pass. When you buy a ticket online you must exchange it for a wristband. You can do that at several of the entrances to the Gay Village.

Ticket sales start a few month before the event, check their website:
Saturdays a big gay pride parade moves through the city.

Where to stay

Most gay pride activities are concentrated in the Gay Village, which is the area around Canal Street. It is very close to the railway station.
There are many hotels located in the area, and most of them get fully booked with gays and lesbians in the gay pride weekend.
