Places to stay in Manchester

Known the world over for its contributions to popular music and sport, Manchester is jam-packed with fun activities for all the family. The city's choice of museums and art galleries is plentiful, with the period since the industrial revolution turning this once small market town into a truly cosmopolitan city.

If you are in need of some greenery, head out to Greater Manchester, or even a little further to the Peak District for a ramble across the beautiful countryside.

Five Free Things To Do In The Lake District

National Football Museum
In a city so famous for its football clubs, it is unsurprising that the National Football Museum is now a major attraction, and is ideal for football fans of all ages.

Heaton Park
The 600 acre Heaton Park brings the countryside into the city, and is the perfect place to let your children stretch their legs and use up a bit of energy in lush, leafy surroundings.

Roman soldiers marched into the north-west of England in 79AD, and selected the location of Castlefield to build their fort. This historic space is now a conservation area within the city of Manchester itself, and is a must visit.

Museum of Science and Industry
The Museum of Science and Industry is a huge museum devoted to the development of science, technology and industry, with a special emphasis on Manchester's achievements in these fields.

Upper Derwent Resevoir
Not far from Manchester, in the middle of the Peak District National Park, is the Upper Derwent Resevoir, an awe-inspiring structure once used by the famous Dambusters squadron for training - it is now used for walks and fishing too.
