Manchester is a
distinctive and lively city
, offering something to please everyone with its vibrant nightlife, amazing restaurants and wealth of cultural activities. The city has undergone extensive renovations
in the last decade and has become one of the UK's most prominent cities.
While you're there, visit the National Football Museum
, where you can explore the world's finest collection of football artefacts and archives in one of football's greatest cities. Or try the People's History Museum
, charting the history of the struggle for equality and democracy in the UK, perfectly reflecting Manchester's radical roots.
And a trip to Manchester isn't complete without popping into the Manchester Cathedral
, housing a gorgeous interior with the best late medieval woodwork in the north - the spire and the ceiling are splendid and full of life.
Then, indulge in some of the city's best shopping, absorbing both vast shopping centres and the smaller local markets. Visit The Arndale Centre
for your high street favourites, or head to the Northern Quarter
, where you can get anything from vintage clothes shops to independent record and book stores, and edgy fashion labels to quirky gift shops.
