See lots, do lots and spend very little in Manchester with a visit to the city’s many budget-friendly festivals and events this summer.
Summer sees the heart of the city transformed into a network of living streets at Dig the City, Manchester’s urban garden festival. Spend time perusing gardens, sampling food or getting the kids digging, and best of all, this urban oasis is free to attend.
After sampling all that the city’s streets have to offer, enjoy delicious food from Crazy Pedro’s in the city centre, shortlisted for the Manchester Food and Drink Festival Cheap Eats of the Year 2015. Then round off your trip with a budget stay at Hatters Hostel in the heart of Manchester’s self-styled creative quarter. Housed in a former bowler hat factory, this lively hostel provides private rooms, ideal for all the family.
Explore the world's largest football collection, learn about the history and culture of England's national sport and take part in other footy-related indoor activities at Manchester's National Football Museum.
