At Inner Space we offer a reflective and calm environment for individuals, local communities and businesses to access, right in the heart of the city.
City life can be extra stressful and if you’re looking to take a short break from your busy schedules, the network of Inner Space centres offer a supportive, inspiring environment to find peace and tranquillity - just a few steps away!
Manchester Inner Space is just one in a chain across the UK. As a service to the community, Inner Space charges no fees for any of its activities. It is funded by voluntary contributions run by an extensive network of experienced presenters who have volunteered their time and resources to make a difference.
What we offer
We offer a range of talks, courses, workshops, tips & tools to help you detach from daily pressures and learn a more positive approach to life.
We also have a very special 'Quiet Room' - a peaceful oasis available for you to drop-in to...sit back in chairs, take time out, recover and refresh your energy, with relaxing music in the background or just quiet if you prefer.
Here at the Inner Space, we work as a team, meditate together and give our time freely to create an all-year-round programme of events.
We aim to nurture the very best in ourselves so that we can naturally enjoy sharing something of value with others. Whether your stay with us is a couple of hours or a half a day, we aim to make it easier to connect to a place of tranquillity within and see life from a higher perspective.
No.14 Byrom Street is a distinctive red brick and sandstone building dating back to 1896, with a history of serving the community.
It was originally constructed as offices for the County Court (now known as Cobden House) on Quay Street. The building was later named “The Old Schoolhouse".
From 1999 till 2004 the building served as head office to the Rechabite Friendly Society, which originated in 1835 when a small group of men in Salford, seeing the poor social conditions of the day, decided to set up a friendly society to support members at times of sickness or death.
It is designated at Grade II in 1989 both for its architectural interest and the strong visual, historical and functional relationship with the grade II listed County Court.
