What to do in
Manchester ?

But that’s not all it contributes to the realm of Elisabeth II. Great shopping, a dynamic student population, and home to several of the biggest names in British rock as well as Eric Cantona, Manchester today is one of the best destinations out there for discovering 21st century England.

    Manchester has long been called the Rainy City. It’s a reputation that’s been exaggerated: on average, it rains 14 fewer days in this part of England than in the rest of the UK! And really, the rain isn’t that bad. But if you're set on a rain-free holiday, plan your trip between June and August. Mild, agreeable weather will make your wanderings here a pleasure, even in the middle of summer. What's more, its also festival time in the city: the Manchester International Festival, a renowned biannual art festival which takes place every other year in July, and Manchester Pride in August. What about the rest of the year? The air is cool, but generally mild. In contrast to the many rock scenes in the city where things are hot and frenzied. In short: don't mind the weather! Whether it’s pouring it down or sizzling hot, the ambiance in Manchester is always dazzling!
