A capital of the north

As the unofficial capital of the region, Manchester makes an ideal base for exploring the North of England. For days out head for the stunning countryside of the Lake District, Lancashire and the Peak District or make the most of the city’s transport links to visit local market towns, the vibrant City of Liverpool (European Capital of Culture 2008) or the historic cities of Chester or York…
A unique energy and drive makes it a destination to be fully explored and a great range of parks, pools and city districts gives plenty to see and do..

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Excellent range of attractions, good transport links, energy
  • Cons:Book in advance, a good range of hotels, but pricey
  • In a nutshell:Worth a visit!
