With a small museum and heritage centre, The Pankhurst Centre stands as a proud legacy to the Suffragette movement and the Pankhurst family. Offering a unique place where women can learn, work together and socialise, the centre also houses a women’s community centre.

The Pankhurst Centre, or 62 Nelson Street, was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her family from 1898 until 1907. A truly important heritage site – the first meeting of the Women’s Social and Political Union, the movement that became known as the Suffragettes – took place in the parlour of the house. Continuing the fight for women’s equality, the building is now the headquarters of Manchester Women’s Aid.

Vibrant and welcoming, the centre also hosts a number of women’s organisations, projects and events, supporting women’s activism in local communities across Manchester.
