I spent the bank holiday weekend in Manchester. I've visited for work before but never had the opportunity to properly look round, so when I spotted cheap deal online I decided to make a trip back to see what the city was really like.
It was mainly just an opportunity to recharge my batteries - I basically slept and ate all weekend! But we wandered round a few museums and of course made a trip to the shops too!
My favourite meal of the weekend was a trip to a pizza restaurant in the Northern quarter called Dough. It was recommended by the guide to Manchester left in our hotel room, which isn't always the best recommendation(!) but as big pizza fans James and I thought it was worth a try - and it was so good! The pizza was nice, although the desserts and starters were what really made it for me - a gooey baked Camembert with dough sticks to start and to finish gluten free cheesecake which was every bit as good as a gluten-full one! My mouth is watering just remembering it!
