Treat the family to a magical winter break


Manchester really does have something for everyone to enjoy, with a huge range of family friendly activities and attractions.

First on the list of things to do with the family should be a trip to the East Lancashire Railway. Not only full of heritage, this historic site is also the home of festivity this winter and a great day out for the family. Enjoy fine cuisine whilst riding across the beautiful Lancashire scenery and even get some Christmas shopping done at this popular family attraction.

Richmond Tea Room is a delightful hidden gem in Manchester and is the perfect place to take the family. With a lavish décor in a stunningly beautiful building, guests can enjoy a wide range of food and drink whilst enjoying the scenic atmosphere of this family friendly destination. For a balance of comfort and price, the centrally located Arora Hotel is ideal for families looking to stay in the heart of Manchester. Book early to save even more and select from a great choice of rooms including a family room feature with two double-size beds that can accommodate two adults and two children.

For a day of entertainment, Manchester’s theatres are the place to be. With regular shows, pantomimes and musical performances designed for families, places such as The Lowry, The Palace Theatre and the Royal Exchange Theatre are all perfect destinations for families looking for a laugh.
