One of England’s largest cities, Manchester has a rich industrial heritage. The Castlefield conservation area’s 18th-century canal system recalls the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry. With a population of over 2.55 million, Manchester is perfect for a busy city break.
Manchester is a vibrant, busy community with so much culture and so many attractions. If you're a music fan, the popular Manchester Arena and O2 Manchester Apollo have you covered with a wide variety of concerts for every genre of music. A large array of shops, your perfect shopping trip could be ahead of you. Home to two world-famous football teams - Manchester United and Manchester City, you can visit Old Trafford and City of Manchester Stadium, taking in the iconic history of these teams, and you could also go see them live in action. Manchester also plays host to a colourful and popular LGBT scene, specifically the Canal Street gay village boasts a range of clubs, pubs and restaurants, which take in 20,000 visitors every weekend.
Manchester is also under an hour's drive or train ride from Blackpool and Liverpool, meaning the iconic Blackpool promenade; dominating Blackpool Tower; exuberant Blackpool Pleasure Beach; a Beatlemania experience; or the Liverpool F.C's Anfield Stadium could be part of your trip.
