​​Destination: Manchester

Manchester is a fun and engaging city where the warmth of the welcome is apparent throughout the hotels, restuarants, shops and interesting attractions. A compact city, it is easy to navigate by foot or using the tram and bus services.

Visitors of all types will have plenty to do while they’re here.

There is art and culture around every corner, with theatres, concert halls and galleries showcasing a range of performing and visual arts every month. With a range of festivals, music events, parades and sporting events there is an extra reason to visit whatever time of year is being considered.

Visit the Quays waterfront and enjoy a cruise round the canals before visiting the thought-provoking Imperial War Museum, The Lowry art gallery and theatre and Media City for the BBC Tour. The Whitworth is an award-winning art gallery and is situated close to Manchester Museum so both are easy to combine in an afternoon trip.
