Radisson Blu Edwardian

Free Trade Hall, Peter St., Manchester, M2 5GP, England

Fodor’s Expert Review

In the heart of the city, this upmarket option invites you to unwind with its lovely spa and its decadent afternoon teas. The building itself is the real star though—the Free Trade Hall, constructed in 1853 on the site of the Peterloo Massacre of 1819, was used at one time as a concert venue that hosted the likes of Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, and the Sex Pistols—retaining many of its original features.
