A true story of underdog success: Manchester began as a small civilian settlement established by the Romans. The city has since seen vast change, with pioneering developments in industry, expansion and social revolution. Abandoned warehouses are now being renovated, old Victorian architecture has received a timely make-over, and the famous Manchester Docklands have had a £200 million restoration; all these developments have added charm to Manchester’s famously gritty cityscape.

Where to Stay in Manchester

There are a wealth of accommodation options available in Manchester, from a city centre apartment to accommodation a bit further out in the bustling suburbs of Didsbury and Chorlton. The Northern Quarter, the city-centre district, is often dubbed the cultural heart of Manchester. Thanks to its recent redevelopment, the area has blossomed, with new creative agencies, bars and restaurants moving in every month. The area is also home to the iconic Afflecks Palace, with its cosmopolitan mix of shops and eateries. Manchester is also a really child-friendly city, so if you are bringing a family or group make sure you search for a flat with extra bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms or children’s facilities.

Things to Do in Manchester

Manchester has a fantastic array of museums, art galleries, world-class sport teams and great shopping facilities. The Science and Industry Museum gives a fascinating insight into Manchester’s industrial past, while The People’s History Museum tells a more personal story. Manchester even boasts a “museum about cities”, the world famous Urbis. Art lovers should head straight for the Manchester Art Gallery or Whitworth Gallery. Whether you love or hate Manchester United, a stadium tour is a must. The Football League (the top­ level league before the Premier League was created) even originated in Manchester. If your idea of fun is more high street than spherical-shaped ball games: Manchester is a shopping paradise. Check out premium brands at Deansgate, or visit the Trafford Centre, one of the UK’s largest malls.

Eating and Drinking in Manchester

No trip to Manchester would be complete without a visit to the legendary Curry Mile, located in South Manchester’s Rushholme area. The road is famous for the number of restaurants specialising in Middle Eastern and South Asian cuisine. A swing through Manchester’s Chinatown ­is also well worth it - enter through its distinctive dragon archway, and fill up on some reasonably priced dumplings in spicy soup, noodles or dim sum. Of course, it is impossible to talk about Manchester without mentioning Oasis, the Smiths, the Stone Roses, or one of the many other insanely successful bands that have called the city home over the years.

Getting Around Manchester

Manchester is a very accessible city. You can cover the city centre on foot, or use the ubiquitous yellow trams or local train network. Buses run 24 hours and a weekend pass is reasonably priced. If public transport seems a bit much to deal with at 4am, you will find the local taxi firms are competitive, professional and plentiful. A great deal of the centre is pedestrianised and very flat, so it is also an ideal destination for cyclists. The free Metroshuttle service connects Manchester railway stations, shopping centres and businesses and there are three lines traversing the city centre.
