Music in the North of England is thriving, with a bold sound that's pinned the cities of Manchester, Sheffield and Liverpool firmly on the map.
Discover live music any night of the week in the city of Manchester in the northwest of England. Book a 90 minute walk or specialist bus tour with Manchester Music Tours and see places associated with famous British bands like The Smiths, Joy Division, Oasis and The Stone Roses.
Manchester’s regional rival when it comes to music is Liverpool, home to the legendary rock band The Beatles. The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour is a fascinating two-hour journey into the lives of the ‘Fab Four’, including guitarist John Lennon’s childhood home and the Cavern Club where The Beatles played their early concerts.
Lastly, Sheffield’s nightlife scene has been going strong for years, producing top acts like Arctic Monkeys and Pulp. This city in Yorkshire is a 2 hours 15 minute journey from London by train, with quirky venues like The Leadmill, set in a former flour mill.
