This modest Georgian town house was the Manchester home of the world famous leaders of the Suffragette Movement, whose militant protests were instrumental in the introduction of voting rights for women during the Edwardian era. Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, and her daughter Christabel together formed the Women's Social and Political Union in 1903, after Emmeline's daughter Sylvia had been invited by a member of the Independent Labour Party to paint a hall in Salford in memory of her father, an active social and political reformer and lawyer, but was unable, by virtue of her gender to attend the opening meeting. The museum displays the work and struggle of women suffragettes, as well as reflecting everyday domestic life in the Pankhurst parlour. Also there are Meeting Rooms, available for hire.

The Pankhurst Centre is open Wednesdays and Thursdays 10-4; phone or email before visiting to check it is open.

Off Oxford Road/Wilmslow Road main south exit from town centre, about 2 miles, near University Medical School, and adjacent to Manchester Royal Infirmary Accident & Emergency entrance. Very limited parking.
