Greater Manchester

From the world’s first industrial city to a multicultural urban paradise, a Manchester visit is rich in cultural highlights, with the Transport, People’s History and Science & Industry museums offering a great insight into the area’s history. A city steeped in sporting glory, take a tour around England’s National Football Museum or the world famous football stadium, Old Trafford. Food lovers will love the vast selection on offer, and no trip to Manchester would be complete without a trip to Rusholme’s curry mile, which features around 70 different Indian restaurants. On the cusp of the Cheshire countryside, start making your plans to visit Manchester and enjoy the fruits of the north-west’s premier city first-hand.
