Have you recently booked a staycation in Manchester and are looking around to see what this wonderful city has to offer? Our Serviced Accommodation in Manchester is close to the revitalized Chapel Street, between Deansgate and Salford Quays. It is perfect for both holidaymakers and business travellers, and it serves as an excellent starting point for experiencing the various sites and attractions that Manchester offers.
Although London may be the obvious choice for many tourists in the United Kingdom, Manchester, its northern neighbour, offers a comparable blend of culture, excellent dining, and excitement. For many years, Manchester United, the city's football franchise, has ranked it as the third most popular tourist destination in the United Kingdom. Thanks to the well-developed public transportation infrastructure, it is easy to go about. It's a great place to explore popular tourist sites like the Lake District or Liverpool.
Planning your visit
The weather in Manchester is moderate for much of the year, although summer and early Autumn are the best times to enjoy the outdoors. By going in late October, you may avoid crowds and take advantage of shorter queues at popular attractions. Even though it rains far less than you might imagine, make sure to carry an umbrella and a jacket.
Language: English, although many other languages, including Spanish, French, and Arabic, are spoken across the United Kingdom.
The pound sterling (GBP), sometimes known as "the pound," is the national currency of England.
Getting Around: Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), the city's comprehensive public transportation system, connects the city centre with the suburbs via bus, tram, and local rail. Taxis and Uber are available, as well as car and bicycle rentals.
We recommend allowing at least three days to see everything Manchester offers. The city has several communities and suburbs worth seeing, and you'll want to allow enough time to experience all of the city's cuisines and cafes. Museum-lovers will have a lot to see, so prepare ahead of time and prioritize your plans.
Things to do
Manchester, like London, is a diverse and lively city with a wide range of things to see and do, depending on your tastes and interests. The National Football Museum and the Imperial War Museum North are among its museums and its strong football culture. Manchester is frequently included in longer itineraries by visitors since it is adjacent to several natural sites, such as the Peak District and the Lake District. You can take several day excursions from Manchester, many of which are accessible by rail or bus.
A few places we would recommend visiting are:
Visit the National Football Museum before going to a Manchester United game at Old Trafford Stadium.
The Old Wellington, a historic pub dating back to 1552, is a brilliant spot to eat. The food is traditional and rustic, including classics like fish & chips and burgers with plenty of beer.
Visit the Pankhurst Centre; Emmeline Pankhurst's old house commemorates the Suffragettes' inaugural gathering. We definitely recommend paying it a visit.
