Flights to Manchester

Manchester is a city brimming with history and it’s been at the centre of innovation for decades – from building the first passenger railway station to the invention of the computer.

This is where Rolls met Royce, where Bob Dylan first plugged in his guitar and played electric and where the first public library was established. Will your flight to Manchester result in something similarly seismic? Or will you just enjoy some of the best restaurants, nightlife venues and hotels in the UK?

If you want to learn more about Manchester’s past, check out one of the many museums in the city. The Museum of Science and Industry and the National Football Museum are highlights. If the weather’s nice, make like the locals and head for the hills – literally. Manchester is surrounded by the Pennines and the Peak District, so it’s perfect for walking, climbing, biking and hiking.

Just make sure you’re back in the evening, when Manchester’s brilliant music scene comes alive. Few cities can claim such a cool musical lineage – for a taste, check out the Salford Lads Club, where you can re-create The Smiths’ iconic Queen Is Dead album cover. You can see up-and-coming bands at vintage venues such as the Deaf Institute and the Apollo.

In recent years, Manchester has become just as famous for its food as for its music scene, with lots of new restaurants raising the bar and causing a stir. Spinningfields has become a foodie destination to rival the best of them. And the Christmas markets pull in visitors from across the world as soon as the first hint of festive chill sets in. Add to that chart-topping bands and you’ve got a city with serious heart and soul. As Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown once said: “Manchester has everything except a beach.”

What to do in Manchester

Take a tram to Salford Quays

Salford Quays is a true culture hub. Media City, home of the BBC, offers trips behind the scenes at world-famous programmes such as Match of the Day, while the Lowry has a large collection by Manchester artist LS Lowry as well as exhibitions and theatre shows. The Imperial War Museum North is worth a visit too.

Get lost in the Northern Quarter

The Northern Quarter’s narrow lanes are a cool mishmash of art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, music venues, lounges, cafes, record stores and warehouse apartments. You could easily spend at least half a day just wandering around and exploring – start your exploration with a refreshing drink at Teacup.

Visit the National Football Museum

Manchester is the home of Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City. While the guided tours of both clubs are interesting, be sure to check out the National Football Museum for a fascinating and interactive look at the history of the game.

Where to eat in Manchester

63 Degrees (French)

The Northern Quarter is full of relaxed restaurants, cafes and lounges that don’t expect you to book ahead, so walk around and see what takes your fancy. 63 Degrees is a lovely authentic French restaurant that brings a little taste of Paris to the North West.

The French (British)

Simon Rogan – whose Cumbrian restaurant L’Enclume has two Michelin stars – came to Manchester in 2013 to work his magic on The French at The Midland Hotel. Be sure to try the 10-course tasting menu – it’s one of the top Manchester dining experiences.

Sam’s Chop House (British)

For an atmospheric slice of Victorian life, try this beautiful gastropub with a restaurant attached. Their corned beef hash – 10 days in the making and a classic British dish – is rightly famous. And if you can’t get a booking, try one of the other two Chop Houses – Tom’s and The Albert Square.
