If you think there’s not much to do away from the bustle of the city centre, there’s Moor to do than you think!
Get out and grab a train from Manchester Piccadilly to Heaton Chapel from as little as £3.30 each way! Heaton Chapel train station is only a five-minute walk down Heaton Moor Road to your first destination; The Plough on the Moor!
Sometimes, nothing beats a good old pub lunch. And with so many pubs to choose from, they need to really offer something special to stand out. Plough on The Moor has more than risen to the challenge, with a large menu full of classic favourites and exciting new choices. With options for veggies and vegans that go beyond the usual salad offering and a variety of gin cocktails and craft beers, this is the ideal spot to spend an afternoon.
Seek out a taste of 1920s luxury at The Fitzgerald. This 1920’s Prohibition-themed cocktail bar immerses you in Gatsby glamour from the moment you access its secret back street entrance. Take a midweek visit to enjoy live jazz and blues music as you drink, or start your Saturday night there with 2 for £10 cocktails from 5-8pm.
Put a luxury spin on your usual date night with a visit to Heaton’s Savoy Cinema. Rejecting the trappings of multiplexes, The Savoy offers affordable snacks and even champagne, to enjoy whilst you watch either a new release or an event show. Upgrade your standard seat to luxury to really embrace the experience, or cuddle up on a sofa-for-two.
Fancy a family-friendly Sunday activity that won’t break the bank? Heaton Moor Producers’ Market runs the first Sunday of each month, excluding January, and brings together a huge variety of local artists and producers for this extremely welcoming event. Pop down for a coffee and stay for the company.
Heaton Moor is an ideal place to shop for those of you looking to move away from the same-old high street offerings, and moo-boutique is an independent gem. With a range of items on sale, from clothes to shoes to jewellery, you can stand out from the crowd with your fashion choices, whilst supporting a local business.
