OLD, NEW AND GOOD MANCHESTER

體驗曼徹斯特的古今風韻

Discovery - - 曼徹斯特 MANCHESTER -

EAT

Unctuous lamb chops and real ale in the renovated art nouveau interior of

Mr Thomas Chop House (1). Chase it with expert mixology in the bar of

The Principal hotel – an elaborately reimagined 19th century insurance office.

SEE

Paintings by LS Lowry in the Whitworth Art Gallery (2): the artist’s utterly charming ‘stick people’ portraits of early 20th century Lancashire cityscapes are beloved by locals.

VISIT

Salford Quays – a creative and media hub that the BBC now calls home. Nearby is The Lowry, home to a collection of the artist’s work, as well as a performing arts space.

WANDER

The Northern Quarter (3) – a red-bricked, formerly industrial jumble of design studios, coffee shops and bars, home to all the international staples of newly found hipsterism (you can’t move for beards, tattoos, plaid shirts and tea dresses), as well as vintage emporium Afflecks Palace and cult record store Piccadilly Records.

SIT

In Sackville Gardens (4) – a small park near the Whitworth Gallery. Sitting on a bench is a life-size bronze of computer science pioneer Alan Turing, a professor at the University of Manchester, by sculptor Glyn Hughes. Dying in obscurity, Turing and his achievements were posthumously embraced: this was the man who helped crack the Enigma Code during the Second World War. He is now considered the father of modern computing. In Sackville Gardens, the sculptor’s original Amstrad machine is buried underneath the plinth that lies next to Turing’s genial looking statue.

美食

Mr Thomas Chop House扒房( 1)經過翻新,讓客人在洋溢新藝術風格的空間裡享用肥美羊扒和正宗麥啤。The Principal酒店鉅細無遺地重塑19世紀的保險辦公室,這裡的酒吧有水準一流專的 業調酒師,令人無抗可 拒。

欣賞

Whitworth Art Gallery藝廊( 2)展出LS Lowry的畫作,這位藝術家描繪20世紀初蘭開夏郡的城市風貌,以及身形削瘦 的「火柴人」,深受當地人喜愛。

觀光

Salford Quays碼頭匯聚多個創意媒體,更是BBC英國廣播公司總部目前的所在地。毗鄰的The Lowry收藏一批Lowry的畫作,既是藝廊也是演藝空間。

閒逛

紅磚建築林立的Northern Quarter區( 3)前為身 工業區,現時則有不少設計工作室、咖啡館和酒吧進駐其中,所有國際共通的潮人指標盡在其中,你無法迴避鬍子紋、身、格子恤衫輕和 飄飄的連身裙,還有懷舊百貨店Afflecks Palace和非主流唱片店Piccadilly Records。

安坐

面積不大的Sackville Gardens公園( 4)毗鄰Whitworth Gallery藝廊,園內的一張長椅上,放置了一座真人原大、貌樣 和藹艾的倫圖靈銅,像由雕塑家Glyn Hughes負責操艾刀。 倫圖靈是電腦科日先驅,他曾是曼徹斯特大日的教,授 並曾於二次界戰世 大時協助破解德軍的Enigma Code密碼現,在更被譽為現代電腦之父。然而他在世時卻鬱鬱不得志,更身後 是寂寞蕭條;他逝世許多年後才獲大眾追認他的成就,廣為人知。Glyn Hughes更將自己的舊Amstrad電腦埋在銅像旁邊基的 座下,以此艾向 倫圖靈致。敬
