Manchester Weather

Manchester is not a super big city, so a good tip is to walk around there. Enjoy shopping and discover some of the best restaurants in town in the Canal Street area, Printworks or the Northern Quarter.

Among the main tourist attractions are the Museum of Science and Industry, the National Football Museum, the Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Cathedral.

But two of Manchester's biggest highlights are the city's football stadiums. Whether you're a fan of the sport or not, it's worth taking a tour of Old Traffod, Manchester United's stadium, or Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City.

Where to stay in Manchester

In Manchester, hotels in and around the city center are the best located. Staying in these areas, you are steps away from the city's points of interest. Portland Street is a great indication to make your reservation – there is even a Ibis styles on this street, for those looking for a hotel with well-known service.

The hotels in the city are varied, with good luxury options, good value for money, more focused on SPA services for those who want to relax, or even more distant accommodations, on the outskirts of the urban center, which follow the style of the English countryside. .
