Manchester’s Stock Exchange first opened its doors in 1906, before making its final trade in 1979, later becoming a restaurant. Seven years in the making, this Edwardian jewel has now been meticulously restored as a 40-room boutique hotel, encompassing signature suites, a penthouse apartment and event spaces.
From an original concept as a private member’s club akin to the historic Arts Club in London, the Stock Exchange development evolved over years. Eventually, it was decided that, in essence, the building belongs to the city.
“The more we researched the building and its history, the more stories we unearthed,” says Gary.
