The classic Manchester bar which still has the best views of the city skyline

We visited Beetham Tower’s Cloud 23 on the hunt to find the best skyline views of Manchester City Centre.

Cloud 23 in Beetham Tower in Manchester city centre is renowned for its breathtaking views of the surrounding area. Nestled 23 stories up in the Hilton hotel, the bar offers fantastic panoramic views of the city centre skyline as well as areas of Greater Manchester and the Pennines.

Anyone can visit for drinks and a view, and the bar is particularly busy during the evening, where you can get a glimpse of the bustling activity of the city from above, lit up by the bright lights at night.

We headed up the 23 floors to take a look at our ever-changing city and speak to people who get to view it from this height every day.
