Manchester’s got everything except a beach.
There’s a lot of things to do around the city and it’s about time we take you on a tour around Manchester!
Get a Tram Travelcard from £5
The all day Metrolink travelcard lets you visit the city on the tram system around the airport, Manchester city centre, Bury, Oldham and Rochdale.
Visit the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Manchester
The Manchester Cathedral dates back to 1215!
Over 50 shops sell vintage clothes, crafts, plants and gifts. Plus, you’ll find free live music and great street food. It runs every Saturday from March to December.
Explore Manchester’s underworld
Take a tour around Manchester’s underground tunnels and hear ghost stories and hauntings.
Venture to Chinatown… at 3am!
Sure, you can go any time of the day but if you want to have the true Mancunian Chinatown experience, listen to us. But if you do go during the day, you’ll also find Chinese medicine shops, casinos and a ton of Oriental supermarkets.
Or head over to Curry Mile
Wilmslow Road in Rusholme is the capital of spicy cuisine and saris in Manchester. It’s a great place to have shisha and curry.
Have a drink + listen to live music in the Northern Quarter
Some of our favourites are The Blackdog Ballroom, Band on the wall, The Castle hotel, Night and day and Matt Phred’s.
Stimulate your brain
Visit the elegant Central library, the City Art Gallery, Whitworth Art Gallery and Cornerhouse arts centre or any of the theatres in the city.
Grab a bite in Spinningfields
Pop-up bars, restaurants and high-end fashion shops.
Indie-hipster-alternative stores galore! Vintage clothes, tattoo and body piercing parlours, skate shops and great people.
Travel back in time in Castlefield
Originally known as Mancunium, a fort in the Roman Britannia. It also represents the Industrial revolution in the UK. It also houses some of the best independent bars and pubs in Manchester!
Take a guided tour through the main rooms of the Town Hall
Neo-gothic architecture and amazing views of Manchester! Don’t forget to go up the Clock tower!
Manchester United’s Old Trafford Stadium
This is a delicate place to recommend, especially if you root for another team. Regardless, we recommend to take the Museum & Stadium tour to learn all about 130 years of history!
Platt Fields Park
Great for jogging, biking, picnics, tennis, barbecues, skateboarding, or to just go for a stroll.
