Without a doubt, Manchester is an unmissable destination in your UK tour. Perhaps you are taking a business trip to the city, or maybe you just want to roam the streets, ready to marvel at the architecture, museums and cosy local cafés you encounter. The old warehouses, the canals, the Chinatown district, Manchester Cathedral, the Imperial War Museum and Albert Square –to mention but a few attractions- have already made thousands of visitors fall in love with the stories within its walls. However, one might as well say that football lovers are the ones who enjoy Manchester the most, having the chance of going inside Old Trafford Stadium (the historic home of Manchester United team), taking a fan tour and complementing the experience with a visit to the National Football Museum.
In view of the above, staying in a hotel in Manchester city centre is strongly recommended, as commuting between different sites of interest, art galleries, restaurants and shopping areas can be done smoothly by bus, tram or train. If you are arriving by air to this part of England, know that only a short train journey (of about 20 minutes) separates the downtown from Manchester airport: you must take the Skylink to the airport’s railway station first and then hop on a Northern Rail or Transpennine Express train towards Manchester Picadilly Station. Find some recommended accommodation options below and choose the one that best suits your interests and travel budget.
