Manchester’s only 5-Star hotel was its greatest ever building, the Free Trade Hall, parts of which survive, as we discover on this tour. Here the Halle Orchestra played for 150 years, great statesmen like Disraeli and Churchill discoursed, Bob Dylan was booed and Tony Wilson fell in love with the Sex Pistols. Now it’s where the great and good stay in luscious luxury – Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Kylie Minogue and Sven – but not on the same night.
