Our City Centre accommodation lies predominantly in the Georgian Quarter, a beautiful residential area located right in the centre of the city. The area is grade 2 listed, it’s cobbled streets lined with rows of tall, elegant Georgian terraces. There is a thriving café culture in the area, with local residents gathering in popular cafes such as Quarter, Kimos, or The Blackburn House. The Philharmonic Hall is just on the corner of Hope Street, along with the Everyman and Unity Theatres, and local pubs such as The Caledonia, The Blackburn Arms or Peter Kavanagh’s are perfect for a drink if you don’t fancy strolling down to the City’s main streets. Don’t worry too much about the morning after either, as from the Georgian Quarter you can roll out of bed straight to lectures.
