Destination guide

Manchester – a city of reinventions

Football mad and set to the soundtrack of Oasis, Manchester has come a long way since it was the industrial powerhouse of the North. In place of Victorian mills and smoke-belching factories, this great city nurses creative design studios and jazz bars. Along the canals, where trading barges of coal once drifted, shiny exhibition centres, like the Imperial War Museum North, now stand tall on the quays. Sport is massive, with historic footballing sides cranking up the volume at the stadiums. And there's hip and happening areas like the Northern Quarter, riddled with boho bars and eateries and characterful Manchester holiday rentals.

Things to do

Manchester – a place to understand the North

Manchester is a fine place to start unravelling the fascinating story of Northern England. Tales of industry, strife, sporting successes and more pile up. Start at the Imperial War Museum North, where the collections showcase WWII weaponry, propaganda, uniforms and photography. Manchester Museum is a fine all-rounder, complete with Egyptian mummy masks and some Roman relics. Then there's the Museum of Science and Industry, which picks up from the city's merchant-manufacturing past to talk of robots and futuristic tech.


Get sporty in Manchester

If it's the rush of a goal and the tactical passing of the English Premier League that floats your boat, then Manchester holiday rentals in Old Trafford could just be the perfect choice. They'll not only be a stone's throw from the legendary home of the Red Devils, Manchester United, but also promise a gateway to one of England's most acclaimed cricket pitches. The Etihad Stadium – where Man City play – is on the other side of town, while the acclaimed National Football Museum sits in the heart of the city.


Seasonal ups and downs in Manchester

Manchester locals will wax lyrical about just how awesome their city can be in the summertime. Months like June, July and August coax the pub-goers of the Northern Quarter out into beer gardens and patios, adding good vibes to both the days and evenings. They might not be so enthusiastic about the winter, which sees oodles of rain, occasional snow and low temperatures descend across the North. That said, those booking Manchester holiday rentals between December and March will get loads of football matches to watch, and the museums to enjoy – without the crowds.

Natural features

Manchester – just a hop into nature

Manchester is often seen as one of the gateways to the great national parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Northern England. Basing yourself in the city means staying just an hour's drive from the Peak District, for example. That's got access to the long-distance Pennine Way hiking route, which weaves between rock-spotted tors and river-slashed valleys. The Forest of Bowland is to the north, its naked moors and heaths flown over by rare hen harriers.
