  • The Portico Library – sumptuous interior of a hidden gem.
  • The Art Gallery – One of the world’s greatest collections of Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
  • Central Library – built to look like Rome’s Pantheon, in honour of London’s Pantheon, with a nod to St Peter’s Basilica.
  • Midland Hotel – the city’s most famous hotel, lovingly created by the railway people, temporary home of US president Woodrow Wilson, Churchill, Albert Tatlock and Boris.
  • The Hidden Gem – the city centre’s only Catholic church, setting for the greatest new British religious paintings of the 20th century.
  • John Rylands Library – a Gothic gem housing the oldest piece of the New Testament in the world.
