Manchester: England’s diamond in the rough

Packages to Manchester will not be offered during the 2022 summer season.

Picture an entire city repurposed: abandoned factories renovated into trendy lofts and boutique hotels, and dreary docklands turned into stylish new neighbourhoods. This is today’s Manchester, one of England’s most interesting cities. If you’re looking for things to do in the UK, head north for a rugged sort of charm.

Manchester Your Way

Couples
 
Cling to each other on the Haunted Underground Experience, all while learning about the history of Manchester. Flecky Bennett, your “Ghost Host,” is an excellent tour guide, keeping things entertaining and spooky, beneath the busy city streets. Re-enact Mr. Darcy’s first meeting with Elizabeth at Lyme Park, the country house where Pride and Prejudice was filmed. Stroll through perfectly manicured gardens and across sweeping lawns for a truly romantic afternoon.
Family playgrounds
 
Kids feel like they’re flying at Airkix, Manchester’s indoor skydiving centre. Have the instructor take them to the top of the column of air and they’ll spin around on the way down for an unforgettable thrill. Play in the snow all year round at the Chill Factore, the UK’s longest indoor real-snow slope. Ski, snowboard, luge, and tube on the coolest family day trip in Manchester.
Travelling with friends
 
Manchester, home to one of the world’s most popular and richest soccer teams, is of course also home to the National Football Museum. When you’ve finished perusing the most extensive collection of soccer memorabilia on the planet, take turns with your friends testing your own skills at Football Plus+, an addictive interactive feature.
