Destination guide

Greater Manchester encompasses loads

Greater Manchester is the area that encompasses the self-proclaimed capital of Northern England. Within, are the roaring terraces of Old Trafford – the home of Manchester United – and Manchester City's Etihad Stadium, the industrial-chic bars of the Northern Quarter and the buzzing media institutions of Salford Quays. But that's not all. Greater Manchester vacation rentals might also pepper the edges of the beautiful Peak District, sit between the rolling hills of the English countryside or offer a gateway to more off-the-beaten-path towns, like Bolton and Rochdale.

Things to do

Greater Manchester bursts with museums

There are plenty of museums to keep you going on those not-so-rare rainy days in Greater Manchester. Tales of soccer greats twist and turn between the trophies and vintage kits of the National Football Museum – hailed as one of the finest sporting exhibits in the world. Something totally different beckons in the Imperial War Museum North, on The Quays. Behind its UFO-like shell, there are Soviet tanks and strips of metal pulled from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. The Museum of Science and Industry is another must, home to locomotives, jet aircraft and spinning machines.

Activities

Greater Manchester is a hubbub of city life

Get ready to really feel the pulse of the happening North. Greater Manchester is filled with hip neighborhoods, like the Northern Quarter and Ancoats, each home to interesting clutches of Britpop music dives and jazz joints and cocktail bars. If you manage to wake without a hangover, then you could join the roaring fans on the terraces at Old Trafford or the Etihad, watching hard-fought soccer showdowns between the city's 2 top-flight teams. Meanwhile, staying in Greater Manchester vacation rentals in the countryside is a chance to hike the Peak District or cruise along a canal on a barge.

Weather

When to make the most of Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester might not be known for its sunshine and warmth, but it's certainly likely you'll catch days without rain in the summer season. That runs from June to August and is a great time to seek out Greater Manchester vacation rentals – the Peak District looks beautiful and the city's beer gardens are in full swing. To dodge the biggest crowds, seasons like fall – October and November – and winter – December to March – are perfect. It does get wet then, though, and cold, so be sure to bring a coat and an umbrella.

Natural features

Getting out of Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester might seem like an urban destination, but it's not. The sprawling region sits right in the middle of some of England's most iconic national parks. It even pokes a little into the Peak District, a handsome length of hills and valleys that rise and trough over quaint English villages and pubs, awash with herds of red deer, dotted with little caves and leading to the foothills of the Pennines. Head northwards and you could be walking the Forest of Bowland in less than 1 hour. It's a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, crossed by bogs and moors and stone-studded ridges.
