Manchester

Manchester is a fantastic destination for those looking to plan a few days away or even a longer stay.

This area of Greater Manchester is home to some 400,000 residents.

The national capital of London is located 160 miles southeast of Manchester, while Dukinfield is 7 miles to the east.

Escape the adult world for a while and throw yourself into a world of enchantment at the Printworks and Legoland Discovery Centre. Wigan Roller Rink and Cronkshaw Fold Farm are also great places to visit if you're looking for more ways to keep little ones busy.

Find a seat among the action and enjoy the roar of high-performance engines at the Stonerig Raceway, the area's favored destination for speed freaks.

Want to challenge the blackjack dealer? Make your way to the Grosvenor Casino Bolton or the Manchester235 Casino.

Collected from the dry deserts to wet rainforests, the native and exotic flora at the Fletcher Moss Gardens are quite impressive. Many tourists also like to wander around the Denzell Gardens and the Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens.

Pack a picnic basket and take five in the tranquil, green surroundings of Heaton Park and Piccadilly Gardens. Whitworth Park and Peel Park are two more pleasant spots to while away a lazy day with a good book.

If you are searching for a bit of information about the area, talk with the staff at Pugin Heritage Visitor Centre.

Skim some stones across the placid water, listen to the birds and enjoy a picnic at Hollingworth Lake.

Want to escape the stresses of city life? Head out to Millennium Walkway and Peel Monument. Nature lovers will also enjoy Jumbles Country Park and Moses Gate Country Park.

See the world in a different light by visiting one of the area's educational exhibition spaces. Enjoy the cool and quiet interior as you admire the displays at the Urbis and the Imperial War Museum North. You might also want to consider a visit to the National Football Museum and the Museum of Transport.

Browse a wonderful range of scientific artifacts, models and displays as you wander through the Museum of Science and Industry, a well-known science institution.

The specimens and objects at the Manchester Museum aren't simply interesting to look at. They also play an important role in our understanding of the natural world.

Are you an art aficionado? You'll be spoiled with galleries of all sizes here. Immerse yourself in the cool atmosphere at the Manchester Art Gallery and the Whitworth Art Gallery. If you have time afterwards, the Chinese Arts Centre and the Bury Art Gallery and Museum are also well worth checking out.

Amateur historians can travel back through time at the People's History Museum and the Manchester Jewish Museum. The Portland Basin Museum and the Saddleworth Museum are also respected options.

Castlefield Roman Fort and the Abraham Lincoln Statue are certainly worth visiting, even if you're not that into history. More stories from a bygone era await at Lyme Park and the University of Salford.

Barton Swing Aqueduct will be of interest to tourists who are fans of civil engineering.

The spiritual side of the region is on display at Manchester Cathedral and The Monastery. If you'd be interested to look at some more religious sites, have a walk about St Mary's The Hidden Gem and Cathedral Church of St. John the Evangelist.

Before you pack your suitcase and head off home, be sure to stop at a few of the lesser-known attractions here. St. Peter's Square and the John Rylands Library are two recommended options. If you can fit it in, also check out Chill FactorE and Exchange Square.
