1903 Lounge At Manchester Airport

When you're travelling, the most important thing is to ensure that you have a calm relaxing atmosphere before you step on board your flight. At Manchester Airport, there are plenty of lounges to choose from. The 1903 Lounge at Manchester airport is situated upstairs in Terminal One and finally I was fortunate enough to be able to check it out, dragging along my suitcase, despite for that first sip of coffee. Despite arriving a little later than planned due to traffic, the lady in charge, Sophie, guided us round the lounge and offered us a quiet spot to sit, in a little secluded spot, with a beautiful view of the runway. Fortunately the day was clear, so it was great to look out and watch the world go by.

What's In The Lounge?

The lounge was full of little places to sit, from easy chairs and sofas to upright chairs and a business area. Complete with WiFi, magazines and newspapers, I was really impressed with the intimate but comfortable layout. The decor was modern and chic, plenty of art and colours, and of course the best of all, the range of food and drinks available. The lounge also overlooks the runways and so you can see planes coming and going which is such a thrill on a bright day. It is a great escape from the busy terminal and can get you well prepared for your flight. 

Benefits:

  • Never gets overbooked so always somewhere to sit.
  • Great choice of food, hot and cold
  • Magazines and things to read
  • Computers if you need to double check travel arrangements 
  • Great high speed WiFi 
  • Airy and feels spacious 
  • All different types of drinks available 
  • Toilet in the lounge itself
  • Easy to book
  • Screens to keep track of flights
  • Easy chairs and chairs suitable to work on laptops




From herbal teas to coffee (decaf included), with the tap of a button on the screen, you are able to get your drinks easily and comfortably. There is a range of hot and cold buffet food, made to order and also if you really want to tempt the tastebuds, champagne and guacamole! It doesn’t get better. Although our time was limited, I opted for some fresh juice, decaf latte, egg sandwiches and of course some cheese and crackers - it was a lovely bonus to find Brie this time of year, I definitely felt festive after that! I also tried their chilli con carne which was delicious, as well as a chocolate muffin which was very quickly devoured!



The lounge also has its own facilities with its own toilet which is definitely a bonus. From friendly staff and plenty of good food, 1903 is definitely a great choice especially for people wanting to escape the business of the airport terminal and away from rowdy crowds, the lounge provides solace and comfort and I can’t wait to return to spend more time.
