Peveril of the Peak

In case you didn't know, Peveril of the Peak was the name of a stagecoach that journeyed from Market St to London via Derbyshire in 23 hours. And Peveril of the Peak was a historical Derbyshire character who inspired the novel by Walter Scott. A plenty of Northern connections in one spot in Manchester city centre.

The pub has stood on this spot since 1820, but the unique tiled exterior dates from 1920s. It is a traditional English pub, so don't expect to find anything fanciful... except, of course, the name and the exterior of this little gem.
