Manchester

Travel guide - Manchester

Famous for its two major football clubs, Manchester, in the North-West of England, is well known among fans of the beautiful game. Although Manchester United and Manchester City are the pride of Mancunians, the city has more than one string to its bow when it comes to attractions.

Among the major sights of the city, Manchester's architectural heritage is a highlight, notably at the Manchester Town Hall and the John Rylands Library. Even Old Trafford Stadium is considered a historical monument!
Any visit to Manchester should include a detour to the Stockport Air Raid Shelters, which were used in the Second World War.

Manchester is a city which certainly knows how to party. You will find a wealth of events and occasions to have fun with friends in Manchester, such as the Manchester Day Parade which celebrates the city.

If you are visiting Manchester in winter there are plenty of festivities to warm you up: the flames and fireworks of Bonfire Night are followed shortly by the festive cheer of the traditional Christmas Market. Drink to Manchester at the National Winter Ales Festival! The Manchester Irish Festival offers a fun family day out.

Although a sport-mad city, Manchester is also a city of culture, as evidenced by the Manchester Fantastic Film Festival and the World Dance Masters, an international dance competition.

To complete your stay in Manchester, discover some of the many exhibitions as well as classical music concerts which are held on a regular basis, ensuring a lively and interesting cultural programme.
Or if pop or rock music is more your style, head to the Manchester Evening News Arena, the main concert venue in Manchester. It must be said that when it comes to music, Manchester (the birthplace of Oasis) knows its stuff!
