The Manchester Experience

Things To See & Do in Manchester

Whether you’re seeking culture, nightlife, history, or just good fun, there are plenty of things to do in Manchester.

Be absorbed by the beautiful gothic architecture at John Rylands Library and Manchester Cathedral; take in fine art at Manchester Art Gallery and the Whitworth; or discover history, old and new, at Manchester Museum and the Imperial War Museum North.

Of course Manchester is synonymous with football: it’s written in our DNA. So make some time tour of the grounds of Manchester United and Manchester City, and discover the social history of the beautiful game at the National Football Museum.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, a short journey from the city centre provides access to beautiful walks at such as Hollingworth LakeHeaton ParkSale Water Park and Haigh Hall.

And if you need to keep the kids entertained, there’s plenty on offer. The Museum of Science and IndustryPlay Factore and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre are great fun for all the family.
