A fool-proof formula... for the perfect Bank Holiday

Ahhh the great British bank holiday! There really is nothing like a three-day weekend to put everyone in a good mood. But how to spend it?

Deliberating and debating over what to do can be a bit of a mood-killer so we've come up with a few fool-proof formulas for some guaranteed bank holiday fun!

Treetop swinging and Sunday lunch

Zip-lining, scaling swinging logs and tackling rope bridges 15 metres above the ground is a sure-fire way to work up an appetite.

Heaton Park's Treetop Trek is a family-friendly and adrenaline-filled day out — made even better when you know you're heading back into town for a mouth-watering roast at Store Street Exchange.

Think heaps of outdoor fun followed by herb-crusted Portobello fries, Chef's roast of the day, all rounded off with a few scoops of our handmade artisanal ice cream.


Crazy golf and cocktails

Putt your way through one of Junkyard Golf's bizarre courses. There's a scrapyard, jungle and freaky fairground themes to choose from. Perfect for big groups or challenging a friend or two!

Once you're all golfed out just head to Store Street Exchange and choose from our selection of thirst-quenching cocktails, from fruity Cosmopolitans to our unique take on a classic, the Smokey Manhattan.

Feeling particularly proud of your putting skills? You could always order a perfectly chilled bottle of Belstar Prosecco NV.


Arts and Afternoon Tea

If you're looking for something a little more educational this bank holiday, why not check out our local Castlefield Gallery?

Find out what actually lies behind the latest exhibition's ridiculously long name 'Oh, it is easy to be clever if one does not know all these questions' — as it explores the parallels between early-career artists in Manchester and Prague.

Once you've finished soaking up all the culture, you can stop by Store Street Exchange for a spot of Afternoon Tea. Choose from classic, cocktail or our speciality vegan and gluten-free options with a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and homemade cakes.


Escape rooms and SSE favourites

Get a group of friends together to tackle Lucardo's ultimate escape room challenge! Crack the codes and solve the puzzles to retrieve stolen documents from enemy spies, steal the world's largest diamond or catch a serial killer.

Afterwards, you can discuss your successes (or failures) over some of Store Street Exchange's best-loved dishes including Spiced Cornish crab & avocado on toast, rotisserie Goosnargh corn-fed chicken and 21-day dry-aged steaks. Sound good? We haven't even mentioned the desserts!
