Vibrant Manchester

A lively and fun-filled city, Manchester knows how to party. Let the good times roll.

Manchester’s long been famed for its music scene and now literature, food and drink festivals also fill the cultural calendar. The city also boasts world-class sport, shopping and theatre too. If you fancy hitting the bars, Canal Street is the liveliest part of the city.

The bold mix of old and new, as Manchester’s industrial heritage meets cutting edge waterfront developments, makes the city great just to wander around. Or head to the inspiring mountainous landscape of the Lake District and recharge your batteries.
