This is Manchester, we do things differently here


The cosmopolitan city of Manchester has always been a draw for anyone looking for a break from the dull day to day. Ranging from areas like the Northern Quarter full of artsy bars, shops and stalls to Spinningfields where everyone is keen to partake in a day drink or two, there is no cap to Manchester’s allure.

Deansgate Locks is a great place to indulge in a pub crawl, or the popular music scene offers a different approach to a night out. The shopping is unrivalled, and the Football history is intriguing- even if you don’t support the teams themselves. Manchester is the perfect place to pop off for a weekend break or a proper holiday.

When to go?

Manchester is another city jam packed with events throughout the year and with two huge football teams in Manchester Utd and Manchester City there is plenty of excitement and visitors when these two play. March-December would be the best times to visit with the most things going on and Christmas is extremely festive with the plethora of Christmas markets but be aware there will be a lot of tourist traffic! With plenty of different districts including a lot of cool and funky bar/restaurants always buzzing throughout the year but like with any city in the UK, Spring/Summer is the best bet!

How many days?

As mentioned above Manchester as quite a few different districts such as Picadilly, Deansgate, Spinningfields so if you wanted to get the most out of visiting Manchester we would suggest 2-3 nights, if you live in the UK easy enough to split up into a couple of trips if you are impressed!

How safe is it?

Manchester is a generally safe city and is well under surveillance after recent events. We would advise to stay away from North Manchester areas as they tend to have a reputation for petty crime but again common sense prevails in not walking around on your own late at night.
