Alan Turing Memorial, Manchester Reviews - Write a Review
I visited Manchester for the first time last month from Seattle, WA, USA and didn't know this wonderful memorial was here! It was a great surprise! The statue & plaque are a fitting tribute to a great mind and the grounds were well-maintained & quiet; perfect for contemplating the significance of his contributions to algorithms & AI. I hope I get to visit Mr. Turing (or at least his likeness) on my next visit!
A small, pleasant park surrounds the memorial. It's great that Manchester has a tribute to Alan Turing, and it's really close to the Village and city centre.
I'm a computer scientist... Alan Turing is almost the grandfather of computer science. It's always been a quiet contemplative place whenever I've been, unfortunately the surrounding green area can be littered. There's a plaque that can be interacted with using a phone or a web browser, which informs visitors a little more about the life and struggles of Mr Turing. I understand a volunteer organisation attempts to keep the grounds clean, however the park is situated near many clubs and I imagine this contributes to the littering issue, unfortunately. Sometimes people leave tributes to the great man and it's nice to see that his memorial is paid attention to. If you wish to learn a little more about him or like me, owe your career to him, it's worth spending some time visiting him.
The memorial is beautiful and we found it full of flowers. The park could be better kept.
You're only looking at this online because of this man. go see a man who saw the future and helped deliver it to you..
