MANCHESTER ARENA

Things to do in Manchester

Whether you’re seeking culture, nightlife, history, or just good fun, there are plenty of things to do in Manchester.

Be absorbed by the beautiful gothic architecture at John Rylands Library and Manchester Cathedral; take in fine art at Manchester Art Gallery and the Whitworth; discover history, old and new, at Manchester Museum and the Imperial War Museum North; see contemporary arts redifined at HOME; or even learn to ski at Chill Factore.

Of course Manchester is synonymous with football: it’s written in it’s DNA. So make some time to tour of the grounds of Manchester United and Manchester City, and discover the social history of the beautiful game at the National Football Museum.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, a short journey from the city centre provides access to beautiful walks at such as Hollingworth LakeHeaton ParkSale Water Park and Haigh Hall.

And if you need to keep the kids entertained, there’s plenty on offer. The Museum of Science and IndustryPlay Factore and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre are great fun for all the family.

Or, if a good night out is more your thing, Manchester’s food and drink culture is thriving. With new restaurants, bars, gastropubs, and cafes opening weekly, the city is establishing itself as one of the UK’s most exciting nightlife destinations.  We advise booking ahead at restaurants you may want to visit and it’s better to also book in at many of the busy bars and clubs.
