Do you know England’s “Second City”? It’s Manchester, former industrial hotbed and current trend-setting “Capital of the North”. From gothic architecture to good old-fashioned pub crawls, Manchester is quintessential England. Download a few football chants and have chin wag with your seatmate. You’re in for a smashing good time!
Flights to Manchester Airport (MAN) land about 15km south of town. You can hop on the train to the central station or hook up with the Metrolink to get to other parts of the city. Metrolink can get you to most attractions too, and taxis can cover the rest.
Looking to explore that old English countryside? Wotif’s car hire deals are a sweet addition to any holiday.
Just because you land in the early morning doesn’t mean you have to wait to get your British on. Head to Albert Square and relax with a black tea and crumpet in the shadow of the stunning Town Hall. Afternoon arrivals can get right to the sightseeing with a tour of the medieval Manchester Cathedral. Manchester flights touching down after sunset have plenty going for them, too. You can spend the whole night in the Northern Quarter, from devouring a delicious dinner to dancing until morning. Then book one of our London packages and take an hour’s flight south to compare the two. Your England tour is now complete.
OK, you can probably never be as passionate about Manchester’s football team as the local Mancs. But you can have a crazy day pretending! Book hotels in Manchester near Old Trafford Stadium and get ready to sing “Come on, you Reds!” with 75,000 other fans. Don’t shout too hard—you’ll need your voice to make friends with the locals in the pub after.
