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 or motorhome hire from Easicampers? 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.
