Manchester has a network of interconnected 'quarters' ensuring there's something for everyone.
There's something for everyone in Manchester from top-notch restaurants to fun-filled attractions, as well as a few hidden delights for the curious tourist.
Often dubbed the Capital of the North, Manchester is one of the most dynamic and lively places in Europe. A big city with a compact and friendly centre, The Stone Roses singer Ian Brown famously said “Manchester’s got everything except a beach”.
Over the last few years an extensive regeneration project has resulted in a new shape to Manchester’s skyline; notably the Hilton Beetham Tower. The city boasts two of the biggest football clubs in the world; Manchester United and Manchester City, which can be found within 3 miles of Manchester Piccadilly train station. With a vast array of shops, shopping in Manchester is well worth more than just one day's attention, so why not book into one of Manchester's many city centre hotels to make the most of your visit.
