A guide to Manchester’s Pride Parade 2023

Living in the heart of Manchester is truly an unparalleled experience, given the city's many bustling events and activities. Living in one of our luxury apartments in Manchester like AXIS, Manhattan, or Oxygen places you right at the heart of all the excitement 

This year, we’re so excited that we’ll be providing a warm welcome for visitors and festival goers with our collaboration with Manchester Accommodation BID and Marketing Manchester. We’ll be showing some spectacular rainbow artwork lighting up our giant AXIS screen all weekend. 

One of the most anticipated events this year in the city, the Manchester Pride Parade, is returning on Saturday, 26 August. The theme this year is 'Queerly Beloved', and promises a mesmerising blend of colour, celebration, self-expression, and the power of dance. 

Navigating the vibrant streets during the Manchester Pride Parade can be an exhilarating experience. Living in one of our central Manchester apartments means you’re never far from the action, but here's a clear guide to ensure you catch all the highlights of this year's parade route and find the best vantage points: 

The route   

The parade kicks off at Deansgate, right from its junction with Liverpool Road. Following this, the parade will head towards and turn right onto Peter Street, offering spectators views of the iconic Great Northern Warehouse and Central Library. Moving on, the procession will continue onto Oxford Street and then make another right onto Portland Street, which runs alongside the bustling Gay Village. The parade will then take a right onto Princess Street, before turning left onto Whitworth Street. The grand finale of the parade is set to occur at Fairfield Street. 

For those looking for the best viewing spots, consider positioning yourself at the base of Beetham Tower for a panoramic view. The corner of Deansgate and Peter Street offers a unique vantage point as the parade transitions streets. If you're keen on soaking in some of Manchester's historical ambiance, right outside the Central Library is a prime spot. Lastly, any location along the Portland Street stretch guarantees you'll be in the heart of the parade's energy. 

Make sure to arrive early to secure your preferred spot and enjoy the festivities to the fullest! 

Beyond the parade  

The end of the parade is just the beginning of an electrifying celebration. The Gay Village, not far from our luxury apartments in Manchester, will host an array of events, performances, and parties. Notable headline performances feature the likes of Danny Beard, Conchita, and many more.
