Instituto Cervantes Manchester, 326/330 Deansgate, Campfield Avenue Arcade, Manchester, M3 4FN – Visit Now

On the corner of Deansgate, close to the Science and Industry Museum, Instituto Cervantes quietly but purposefully curates some of the best Spanish language learning and cultural happenings in the city.

There is a well curated selection of Spanish classes for all ages and abilities on offer. Some take place within the architecturally stunning instituto and others can be accessed online. You can learn at your own pace and convenience, whether you want to sign up for a longer duration course or attend the odd workshop there are plenty of options available.

Outside of language teaching you can find a very full calendar of cultural events and happenings at Instituto Cervantes. There’s a regular film club and lecture series as well as book signings, exhibitions, installations and socials. Often the events are free to attend but it’s worth checking before turning up as sometimes you have to register.

Beyond the Manchester centre, Instituto Cervantes is a nonprofit organisation started by the Spanish government to share Spanish culture and language throughout the world. The name comes from Miguel de Cervantes the author of Don Quixote and one of the most important figures in Spain’s literary heritage.
