What to do in Manchester
Manchester is famous for many things – being one of UK’s innovative cities, as the home of Manchester Unites, and giving the world popular soaps like Doctor Who and Coronation Street. But it’s also a top tourist destination because it has a lot of exciting things to offer you for an unforgettable trip.
Like all visitors, you’ll love the city’s historic architecture, culture, sports clubs, and the transport systems that will help you wander Manchester easily.

You won’t need filters to make your photos here stand out.
Visit the museums for your fill of the city’s culture. Go to the Manchester Museum to see different collections of nature’s wonders, and then observe art at Manchester Art Gallery and the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Art. For a more interactive experience, you’ll have a lot of fun at the Museum of Science and Industry. If you’re a football fanatic, time will just fly at the National Football Museum and the Manchester United Museum and Stadium Tour.
Since most museums in Manchester are free (which is just brilliant), go spend your Pounds shopping. Looking for mainstream shops? Hail a cab to Exchange Square, Millennium Quarter, and Arndale Centre. Go sightseeing as you shop at the beautiful buildings of Corn Exchange and Primark, where you’ll also bag bargains. For your quirky and vintage tastes, head to Northern Quarter. But if you want unique and modern items, Trafford Centre is your best bet.
Continue shopping at Market Street, where you’ll also find great outdoor cafes, then walk along Curry Mile for Indian food, sari, and jewellery. There are plenty of other things you can do in Manchester, or you can even try things you didn’t know you could do in Manchester. We just know you’ll have a smashing good time.
