In and Around Manchester
Manchester is the UK's third largest city and the North of England's leading business centre. Jam-packed with extensive history and culture, combined with a modern international flare, there is so much to explore when visiting this great city.
If you are looking for the perfect day trip, then why not take a visit to the innovative Museum of Science and Industry. This family-fun attraction lets you discover and experiment with scientific theories, along with fun interactive games that will get the kids' minds thinking.
For the best shopping experiences, make a visit to The Lowry, based in the popular Salford Quays district on the outskirts of the city centre. Overlooking stunning docklands, this centre houses 2 theatres, galleries, exhibitions, shops, restaurants and bars. A great shopping experience with a great range of designer shops, with prices lower than the high street.
Alternatively, The Trafford Centre is predator in the world of designer and high street stores, with over 100 shops including a 3-floor Selfridges. Also, if you are looking for a break from shopping or wish to treat the kids to something special, The Trafford Centre now houses Manchester Sealife Centre and Legoland.
Manchester is also home to some of the best that British football has to offer, with Old Trafford Football Ground, the home ground of Manchester United and Manchester City's Ground, the Etihad Stadium.
