Dear Need To Know Members,
This month, some of our writers show you around their home cities so you get an insider's view, and because it's summer in the UK, we're keeping focus there for the June round-up – everything looks better in the sunshine.
The glories of ManchesterTwo of our writers Rob Martin and Rhonda Carrier live in Manchester, and they recommend the best places to eat, drink, do, stay and shop. From Indian street food and a restaurant saving waste by making the menu from salvaged foods to a Tudor mansion in Salford and independent art and craft sellers residing in a former fish market, you'll find some of the city's highlights.
Find Bath's best cafés and restaurantsFood writer Jenni Muir divides her time between London and Bath and finds there is life beyond the chains prevalent in the Roman spa town's centre. Discover French-style bread and cakes, a modern take on genteel dining, and top notch coffee.
High points in Brighton and beyondBella Todd made Brighton her home a decade ago preferring it to London. In the centre, head for the vertical pier or an open air theatre created from a former bowling green. Further afield in Lewes recommendations include a stunning lido and the bakers of the best sourdough in Sussex.
This month's most eye-catching nominations from membersThanks to Susie Malakar for nominating Bici Café in Ulverston, Cumbria and to Larry Angsty for nominating Max's Sandwich Shop in Stroud Green, London. Our writers have put those on their list of places to visit. Dave Cook reviewed last month's nomination by Holly Bygrave, Mr P's Curious Tavern.
