The John Ryland Library is part of the University of Manchester Library, a Victorian Gothic library that is one of the best in the city. The items are based on religious, artistic, cultural and scientific books, and there are also a large number of rare and ancient books. Visitors can read early printed books and manuscripts in the collection as well.
The Manchester City Hall on the east side of Albert Square is one of the local landmarks. The imposing Gothic clock tower often becomes the focus for visitors taking photos. Manchester City Hall can be separated into old and new parts. The popular clock tower belongs to the old town hall. There are also white marble statues on both sides of the foyer, belonging to the great scientists born in Manchester: Dalton and Joule.
The Manchester museum of art was established in 1824 as a public gallery in England and now consists of three buildings. The museum's collection includes not only paintings and sculptures, but also decorative art and design works such as ceramics and glass, as well as clothing collections. If you like the art of the pre-raphael era, you will be fascinated by it.
Manchester Cathedral was constructed starting in 1421, in the Perpendicular Gothic style. The Manchester Cathedral was extensively refaced, restored and extended in the Victorian period, and again in the 20th century due to bomb damage.
