"Manchester's a great place but..." Crime and Safety Tip by Paul_Cheak

Crime and Safety, Manchester: 21 reviews and 3 photos

Manchester's a great place but there are many places that you've got to try and avoid or at least have your wits about you when travelling both in the day or night. Town and most places of interest are quite safe in daytime and when there is a healthy crowd. However, try not to wander into underpasses or council housing areas as people there can get quite nasty. Don't wander around too much in the night and if you go out, go with a group of friends. Watch out for out of hand party revellers and (sometimes) youths on bikes may turn quite menacing (personal experience). Also stay away from Rusholme and Trafford during football matches. Jams caused can be a nuisance.
