Explore Manchester in your campervan!

Manchester is one of the UK’s largest and most vibrant cities – and while it’s probably best known for being home to two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world, it’s got a real wealth of character and experiences for you to take in – and what better way to take a tour of the city and surrounding area than with a campervan hire from Easirent? With a simple pick-up from Manchester Airport, roaming the city’s culture and history on four wheels has never been so comfortable – nor so affordable!

So – what is there to see in Manchester? While there’s the already-mentioned football experience you could take on by visiting United at Old Trafford or City at the Etihad Stadium, there’s a great deal of history on display at a number of well-funded and collected museums that you may be able to hunt down on your travels. If you’re a technology or engineering buff you will love checking out the much-celebrated Museum of Science and Industry on Liverpool Road – which, incidentally, is only a few doors down from the soap-head’s dream : Coronation Street – The Tour – where you can take a walk down the famous cobbles and take a close look at the intricate history of TV’s longest-running serial drama.

If you’re more of a fan of world history and ancient artefacts The Manchester Museum is well worth taking in – as is The People’s History Museum if you are particularly interested in local social and economic history. We can assure you that it’s far more exciting and hands-on than we can make it out to be in a sentence!

After taking in culture and knowledge there’s a fantastic array of entertainment venues and theatres for you to sample if you’re looking into spending an evening in the city centre. Club venue and café Gorilla is a popular spot and has been earmarked as one of the best independent eateries in the city – and if you’re heading out for a laugh there’s the famous Comedy Store in the heart of Manchester which is regularly host to scores of stand up comics and generally funny people telling jokes – along with a wide selection of food and drinks. Both Gorilla and The Comedy Store are situated in the city centre surrounded by independent bars and cafés alike – meaning that you are truly spoilt for choice if you’re looking for drinks beforehand or afterwards!

If you’re looking for fun and unique experiences on your visit to Manchester there’s also a chance for you and your friends to try out The Escape Games – essentially large scale puzzle games that you can actively solve out in the open! Breakout Manchester is one such experience which sees a team of friends attempt to escape a locked room within sixty minutes by solving a number of puzzles and tricks – it’s an exhilarating and unique experience that you really won’t be able to find anywhere else!

On top of our suggestions there is of course the Manchester Evening Arena if you’re in the mood for a gig or a giggle – and if you’re looking to take in some retail therapy, The Trafford Centre is a true metropolis and shrine to everything shopping.

Whatever you choose to do or see in Manchester, why not consider taking a campervan around the surrounding area and go exploring? Hiring with Easirent is affordable and convenient, and is especially suited to weekend trips to a city such as Manchester where there’s a huge amount to take in through one sitting alone – why not go vanning and take a few days to enjoy the culture and the history and take comfort in that you’ll be driving your home around with you!

Campervan Short Break in North Wales.

For sheer variety of experiences, North Wales crams more into one small corner than any other region of Britain. I’ve tried to reflect that in this four-day Campervan tour. It begins in the Borderlands, just 1hr from our Manchester depot but you know immediately that you’re in another country, with its own pace of life, traditions, language & food.

Day 1 – Morning – Chirk Castle: The border between England and Wales has the richest concentration of castles in the world, and considering they were often built to keep us uppity Welsh in check, it’s ironic that we’ve now adopted them as beloved tourism attractions. Chirk Castle is a great example: built 700 years ago as part of Edward I’s ‘ring of steel’, it evolved into a Welsh stately home and is now in the care of the National Trust. The clipped yew hedges have something of the ‘In the Night Garden’ about them, there’s also a children’s play area and giant-sized family puzzles on the lawn.

Afternoon – Llangollen: Llangollen is barely seven miles from the border, but with a name like that, you know for sure you’re in Wales. It’s a swarthily handsome place, built on a major crossing of the River Dee, whose white waters boils picturesquely through the town centre. There are several companies that run thrilling rafting expeditions here, along with other adventure sports, wet and dry.

Day 2 – Morning – Snowdonia: Betws y Coed is Snowdonia’s main road hub, but this pretty town is much more than just a picturesque crossroads. It’s great just for mooching around, and there are good, short walks up to Llyn Elsi, or down to the Swallow Falls. Families with younger children will enjoy a trip to pretty Beddgelert, where they can seek the grave of Gelert, a legendary hound whose tragic tale is either, a) totally true, or b) totally made up by a 19th-century innkeeper to lure tourists. I’ll let you make up your mind on that one.

Afternoon – Portmeirion: Take the steam-powered Ffestiniog Railway to Minffordd, the nearest station to Portmeirion, an extraordinary Italianate fantasy village made famous by the surreally sinister 1960s TV series, The Prisoner. When the sun sets over the estuary, with the mountains looming behind, there’s really no place like it on earth.

Day 3 – Morning – Llŷn Peninsula: The Llŷn Peninsula has almost 100 miles of coastline, with dozens of beaches and coves to choose from. The south coast offers the region’s best water sports, notably at Abersoch, while the north and western coasts are wilder and more rugged. Do stop for a walk on the ‘whistling sands’ of Porth Oer, which squeak as you walk on them (it’s one of only two beaches in Europe with this special type of sand). Then head for lunch at Caernarfon, home to a magnificent castle and the Welsh Highland Railway, which steams down to Porthmadog along Snowdon’s western flanks.

Afternoon – Anglesey: Head for Llanddwyn Island, which is arguably Wales’s most romantic spot, with a lighthouse and ruined chapel dedicated to the Welsh patron saint of love. On the way, take your pick between Plas Newydd country house, Anglesey Sea Zoo and Foel Farm, before heading back up the Strait to Beaumaris, which has another castle, as well as some great shops and restaurants.

Day 4 – Conwy and Llandudno: Conwy is another classic castle with the added bonus of being set in a classic medieval walled town. It’s a chic, likeable town, with a lively River Festival every summer. Just along the coast, Great Orme is the perfect place for a family muck-around, with a tramway or cable car to the summit, and lots to do when you get there. Carry on a bit further and you reach the Welsh Mountain Zoo at Colwyn Bay, whose exotic species include snow leopards, chimpanzees, red pandas and Sumatran tigers.
Once you’ve exhausted the campervan itinerary it’ll be time to head back to our Manchester depot.
