Culture and nature in abundance

Manchester boasts numerous magnificent museums. In the Quays district there’s The Lowry, the city’s arts and cultural centre, with galleries to visit and two in-house theatres where you can see a show. Within a stone’s throw sits the Imperial War Museum. The building, designed by the renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, is worth a visit, if only for the architecture. The interactive Legoland Discovery Centre is great if you have children in tow.

From the 'Curry Mile' to Beetham Tower

Constructed from glass and at 165 metres tall, Beetham Tower is the UK’s tallest residential building, making it an ideal vantage point. In good weather, you can even see as far as Liverpool and Blackpool. Manchester caters for foodies too. More than 200 mainly Indian and Pakistani restaurants on ‘Curry Mile' form a jumble of illuminated façades and neon signs. Craving something else? The hip Ancoats district has trendy restaurants galore. And Europe’s largest Chinatown is the place to go for Chinese food.
