Manchester City Guide

Located in the North East of England, Manchester is a city with a rich industrial heritage, famed in recent years for its football and music scene helping to propel the city onto the world stage and make it a must see destination. A down to earth and friendly city that has had to overcome industrial decline, in the process becoming a confident and diverse city of well over two million people.

Manchester has a wide range of accommodation on offer to suit all needs and requirements from luxurious boutique spa hotels to the budget chain hotels.

If a night out is required in Manchester then you will not be disappointed with a number of specialist and popular nightclubs catering for all music needs with everything from dance, soul and popular indie music catered for. Don’t be surprised to stumble upon talented local musicians in many of the city’s popular clubs and bars; music is in the blood of many Mancunians.

For a complete view of Manchester and all its landmarks stop by Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre and enjoy a ride on the Wheel of Manchester where you can sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the city, ideal for planning your visit from.

A popular destination on any visit to Manchester is of course Granada Studios, the home of the great British soap Coronation Street. Members of the public are able to wonder down Britain’s most famous cobbled street where the show was filmed for over 50 years making it a true British institution.

Fans of football or those looking to experience an English match day atmosphere for the first time, then Manchester, a city with a deep footballing divide with two teams playing at the top of the English game is well worth a visit. Whether you’re a fan of the Red Devils of Manchester Utd or a Sky Blue Manchester City fan, or maybe you’re just a fan of football itself, a trip to Old Trafford or the Ethihad Stadium will give you a match day experience to remember for many years to come.

For art and science lovers Manchester is a gold mine of interest with Whitworth Art Gallery, the Lowry Art and Entertainment Complex and the Museum of Science & Industry all giving you ample choice where visitors are advised to set aside at least four hours for a visit where you will be taken on a journey through Manchester’s rich heritage. See first-hand what it was like to work in a Cotton Mill as well as observe the world’s largest collection of steam mill engines. For a closer in depth look at the Great War then the Imperial War Museum is also well worth a visit.

Manchester City Centre has many great shops ranging from high street brands that we’re all familiar with to smaller boutique shops where you can pick up something unique to take home.  Venture out of the city centre towards the Trafford Centre, a huge multi-story shopping centre that will cater for all your needs.  The inside of the centre is set in a cruise ship like surroundings for the ultimate shopping experience. With more restaurants than you’ll ever need to try when visiting Manchester, and a bowling rink and entertainment area, you’ll be able to spend plenty of time enjoying Trafford Centre.

When the sun comes out, take the kids to one of Manchester’s many parks, with Debdale and Didsbury parks both popular with locals, providing something for everyone to do, and a setting to lie back and relax on those rare days when the Manchester sky turns from grey to blue.
