Manchester, United Kingdom for David Shrigley Exhibition

We arrived to Manchester on an evening train from London on a Friday night, so you could say our stay there started with a bit of a bang. Only stopping to Didsbury to drop off our bags, we then went on to have some fun along the Canal street and the surrounding bars and pubs that were chock-full of freshers who still haven’t figured out their drinking limits.

In the morning, I was taken down Oxford Street for what I was told was the best dingy pizza place in the world. And it turns out they were right! I don’t know what was in it, but it definitely recuperated me after the rough night of fatigue and partying. In the afternoon, we visited the legendary Cornerhouse to see David Shrigley’s exhibition and enjoy some simple line art that dealt with the most existential of problems. Feeling like we need something to take the edge off, we went into the little tea/cake shop in Cornerhouse and ended our little Manchester trip with a delicious lemon tart. Great fun!
