The Chinese Arch, Faulkner Street
The Chinese Arch, Faulkner Street
The magnificent Chinese Arch stands proudly over Faulkner Street, proclaiming the important place Chinatown has become and celebrating the large Chinese community in Manchester and the North West of England.

The Arch, which has stood here since 1987, was gift to the city from the Chinese people and was the first true Imperial Chinese arch erected in Europe. Even more decorative than the one found in San Francisco, the arch is painted in red and gold and adorned with dragons and phoenixes, colours and symbols of luck and prosperity.
