Fly to Manchester

Rich in history, generous with attractions

Such is Manchester’s vibrant, modern individuality it is occasionally known affectionately as ‘Madchester’. The city has a confident swagger to it confirmed by new and imaginative transformations of several major quarters. Inspirational industrial and architectural heritage has been fondly preserved and improved, to complement the emergence of multi-cultural attractions, theatres, top-class shopping, pavement cafes, restaurants and canal-side bars. Manchester’s legacy of proud Victorian buildings adds distinctive character to the streets – don’t miss Albert Square’s 19th century triangular town hall.


This is a city that constantly ups its game

Especially when the games are football and cricket – in welcoming and entertaining its visitors. Award-winning museums such as the Manchester United FC Museum and the Museum of Science & Industry commemorate a vivid present as well as a remarkable past (after all, north-west England was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution). The Whitworth Gallery and the Lowry Centre, which is not far away in Salford Quays, offer exceptional exhibitions of visual art, and the music scene is a Wonderwall (see what we did there?) of great names.

As for shopping, you’re in the right place – explore Market Street and the Arndale Centre, or the neo-classical Trafford Centre, just five miles out of town, with its 200 stores and three miles of granite and marble boulevards.

Need a breath of fresh air? Go east of the city and discover the memorable countryside of the Pennine moors and upland valleys and country parks.
