Travel to Manchester

Considered by many as the capital of the north, Manchester is rich in history, culture and friendly locals. Whether you’re looking to catch a show at the theatre, head to a gig at one of the many live music venues or sip cocktails at the feast of bustling bars and nightclubs, there’ll be something in this vibrant city to keep you entertained. 

If you’re looking for cheap travel to Manchester, with it being such a celebrated destination, landing a lift share is easy. As well as being popular with tourists, Manchester has one of the biggest student populations in the UK, so you’ll find plenty of people driving there from big cities such as London, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh

Things to do

Those who love to shop are in luck – Manchester boasts loads of shopping centres, one of the most popular being the Trafford Centre. It’s just 5 miles outside the city, and with over 200 shops, it’s one of the UK’s largest shopping centres. If you’d prefer to stay in the centre, the Arndale offers a fantastic retail experience. If you fancy a more alternative shopping scene, head to Afflecks emporium in the Northern Quarter – a treasure trove of vintage fashion, antique jewellery and eclectic homewares (be sure to visit the pun-tastically named Vinyl Resting Place record shop).

There are also plenty of museums to visit in Manchester, as well as Chetham’s Library – the oldest public library in the English-speaking world. There’s a thriving sports scene too, with both Manchester United and Manchester City being popular football teams. 

Exciting nightlife

Whether you prefer candle-lit bars or bustling nightclubs, Manchester can suit all tastes when it comes to a great night out. The Northern Quarter is the best place to explore different options for dining out – you can grab your fill of affordable, wholesome northern grub and still have change to splash out on a pint of real ale. You could also head to the Curry Mile, a part of Wilmslow Road in southern Manchester that boasts a huge collection of Indian restaurants and takeaways. After you’ve eaten, wash it all down with a hand-crafted cocktail at the Alchemist bar before dancing the night away or catching a live gig at one of the many venues on the popular Oxford Road.
