Worsley Village with its picturesque black and white buildings, and the famous Market Street with its fine restaurants and shops. The world famous Old Trafford football stadium is here and equally as famous Manchester United football team. You can book tours to visit Old Trafford and its football museum, a football fans dream. The city can get very busy when matches are on and it's worth bearing this in mind by booking rooms well in advance as hotels fill up quickly when football is on.

John Rylands Library is a must do, calling this marvellous building a library is an understatement as it looks more like a castle or a cathedral. A truly breath-taking building with exquisite architecture. There are many art galleries and museums to visit such as The People’s History Museum, Manchester Art Gallery, Stockport Art Gallery and Salford Museum and Gallery are some of the best. However for something a little different try The Chinese Arts Centre, which along with the others can all be found in the Greater Manchester area. Manchester has a thriving gay scene, with hotels, bars and restaurants that are extremely gay friendly, all at the heart of Manchester’s Gay Village. The Urbis is a brand new museum, with modern exhibitions on show in a building that resembles a big glass triangle, an interesting day out for families and couples.

Manchester is like everywhere else in the U.K, as it has good road and rail networks, However Manchester also boasts a tram network in the city and its own airport, so unless you plan on travelling out into the countryside there really is no need to hire a car. Manchester has hotels to suit every budget and taste; the city centre can be expensive so it may be an idea to stay just outside the city centre in a B&B or guesthouse. Manchester isa city of diversity and history; a place to remember
