Top Attractions

Old Trafford

Home to Manchester United, one of England’s largest football teams – despite their recent decline. On a matchday, the stadium often hosts sell-out, albeit quiet crowds. If there’s not a match on, then book yourself onto a stadium tour, taking you pitch side and behind the scenes of the theatre of dreams.

Museum of Science and Industry

This museum is dedicated giving a great insight and telling the story of Manchester’s greatest achievements in the fields of science, technology and industry. With galleries dedicated to Air and Space, the industrial revolution, whacky experiments and so much more, there’s something here for everyone. Perfect for a family day out!

The Printworks

Located in the heart of the city centre, the Printworks is a vibrant hub for everything going on in the city. A complex of bars, restaurants and cinemas, the printworks is the place to be at the weekend and captures the true heart of Manchester’s nightlife.

National Football Museum

Like it or not, Manchester is one of the most successful footballing cities in England, so it seems appropriate that the National Football Museum is here. Here you’ll find a collection of footballing memorabilia, covering various periods of history from all over the world, such as match worn shirts, balls and trophies.  You’ll even have the chance to lift the Premier League for yourself, a foreign concept for any Leeds fans. There are also plenty of interactive activities so you can compete against your mates for ultimate bragging rights.
