Modern city with fascinating past
Manchester offers so much from a hotel stay – whether you’re interested in history, like football, want to shop until you drop, love soaps or simply want to potter about. Walk along Rochdale Canal, the first industrial canal, to Castlefield, with interesting architecture and lots of places to eat and drink. The interactive Museum of Science and Industry is free and well worth a visit. Football fans can tour Old Trafford and the Etihad stadium then visit the National Football Museum, the biggest football museum in the world.
The Good Hotel Guide offers a choice of Manchester accommodation – from a hedonistic city-centre hotel to Victorian villas in the leafy suburbs. As well as fantastic city-centre shopping explore Chetham’s library and John Ryland’s library which are hidden gems, full of historic artefacts. In the summer months walk the famous cobbles of Coronation Street and see behind the scenes of the soap sets.
