About Manchester

Including tips for the best time to visit Manchester

Manchester is the third-largest city in England and has its roots in industry and expressionism. It's the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and home to some of the UK’s most celebrated musicians.

This spirit lives on in a thriving media industry and an array of great museums. Visit the Museum of Science and Industry to learn all about the city’s industrial past and scientific achievements, or delve into sports history at the National Football Museum.

If you're looking to catch a game, head straight to Old Trafford to watch the country’s biggest football club, Manchester United. If tickets are all sold-out, you can either take a stadium tour or just watch their rivals, Manchester City, on their home turf.

Manchester is also famous for its nightlife and music scene. Roam the bars and clubs lining Oxford Road or the Northern Quarter for indie anthems and dance classics by bands like Oasis and The Smiths – two of Manchester’s greatest rock‘n’roll exports.

The city is well connected by trams, buses, and trains to Manchester Piccadilly, the central train station.

Stayed in Piccadilly gardens, this was central to the city centre for shopping, dining and bars. Visited some excellent restaurants, and a short 20 min walk to the Opera House theater, which was the reason for our visit.

I was disappointed with the city.

January 5, 2020

I was disappointed with the city. Really nothing to do. Boring. very dirty place, a lot of beggars and homeless. every bar was filthy and stinky. Not even one decent restaurant all crap franchise... Toilets - OMG, it was a nightmare, really. The only place that was OK was the shopping mall.

I was only in Manchester two times this past December so I really only have the feeling that it is everywhere. The train station for its size was easy to navigate, taxis were easy to find, and out hotels, the Townhouse, and the Crown Plaza were perfect and the views from our windows interesting.
