Explore Greater Manchester’s scenic countryside on an Instagram tour

Manchester, Greater Manchester

Manchester is a thriving metropolis well-known for its busy city scene, but there's a quieter side to the region with acres of beautiful countryside.

Dove Stone Reservoir is a picturesque gem nestled on the border of Oldham and the Peak District National Park. Here, visitors can explore the many footpaths and walkways, see breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape and take superb pictures of the wonderful countryside.

Go to Bury and it’s hard to miss Peel Tower standing tall on Holcombe Hill. The 128 foot structure offers incredible views of the surrounding areas and overlooks the valley below, presenting ample opportunity for picture-hungry Instagrammers to get stunning shots of the region.

Staying in the Hilton Deansgate, the 11th tallest building in the UK, will offer guests luxury and rarely seen views across the whole of Greater Manchester. Not only is this the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of snapping, but it is also in a prime city centre location with easy access to all countryside hotspots.
