Whitworth Locke

Whitworth Locke is set in a beautiful 19th century building in Manchester’s civic quarter. The hotel has 160 studios and suites, made up in all shapes and sizes, embracing the quirks and history of the former cotton mill. Many suites retain grand Victorian period features.

The Conservatory pop-up bar is a secret neighbourhood hang-out. The glass roof reveals the changing colours of the Manchester sky, its intricate detail complementing the dimly lit exposed brickwork. In the centre the bars dominates the space, inviting you to sit and soak in the atmosphere throughout the afternoon and into the night.
