Under the current UK regulations offering escort services in Manchester is tolerated. Running a brothel, or walk the street is a different story though. As usual, an online search for girls offering escort service in Manchester is the way to go. Kommons International (https://kommons.com/) is a nation-wide catalogue. Its Manchester escorts segment is quite significant with over 1300 ladies to choose from, which is almost half the total number of sex workers advertising with them. The classifieds ads site Vivastreet (http://www.vivastreet.co.uk/) functions like a classic online market place where people can sell and buy goods and services and the portal has a fair amount of escorts and masseuses covering the greater Manchester area.
A popular escort agency in Manchester is The Bond Girls (https://www.thebondgirls.co.uk/). I am not sure if all their “agents” can compete with a regular Bond movie girl when it comes to appearance, but the photo galleries on the site look pretty promising. Their girls offer both incall and outcall service and some of them could also be booked for a getaway to the Algarve or other international trip. Most girls seem to be British but they also have some Russian, Moldovan, Hungarian and other Eastern European girls in their stable. I am not that familiar with British porn stars but they claim they have some local adult movie stars working for their agency. So if one of those “agents” would be open to role playing you both could play a scene from your favourite cops porn movie, provided that would be your fetish. Manchester Elite (https://www.manchester-elite.co.uk/) and Secret Babes (http://www.secretbabes.co.uk/) are agencies that offer both elite and regular girls that are shown on their page at a daily rotation. It is stated on the site that escorts, however, have the right to refuse a booking if they don’t fancy the client. Some might find it annoying but I think it’s not more than fair and reminds you are not visiting a brothel.
There are a few brothels in Manchester but they're illegally run by criminal circles and risky places to be. In such cases erotic massage parlours are a safer bet. As for red light districts, there isn’t a clearly defined one but when it comes to sex shops, sex workers and all that good stuff Fairfield Street hits the spot.
The area around Piccadilly Station is filled to the brim with streetwalkers. Just keep in mind that it is illegal, and slightly dangerous out there at night time. You can get a quick blowjob for as little as £10, which could be appealing for the ones to whom price matters. Taking in account the risks and no matter your available budget I would always advice you to stick to escorts since quality comes at a price.
