Leisure Facilities

The city is famous for its arts, culture and social scene. The museums and galleries are second to none with the new-look Whitworth Art Gallery being named the best museum in Britain in 2015, and in 2019 Manchester will open a £110million arts space at the old Granada TV studios. Home to the Manchester Arena, the city attracts some of the biggest international artists but it is also famous for its home-grown comedy, music and acting talents.

The city is also known for its sporting heritage with Manchester United and Manchester City attracting the best players from across the globe, while our athletics, swimming and cricket facilities are regularly visited by world-class athletes and sporting personalities. The National Football Museum is also located in the city.

Food is at the heart of the city’s culture and Manchester caters for every type of cuisine imaginable. From fine dining experiences to gastro pubs, street food and bargain bites, restaurants are opening at a faster rate than anywhere else in the country, including London. Manchester institutions, such as San Carlo, El Rincon De Rafa and The French at The Midland, have been joined by new favourites including Manchester House, Abode, Australasia and Hawksmoor.

Local Shopping

Home to two of the UK’s largest shopping centres, the Arndale Centre and the Trafford Centre, as well as an array of high street and designer stores, and world-renowned department stores, such as Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, Manchester offers an exceptional retail experience. There is also a thriving eclectic and vintage shopping scene that draws shoppers from across the world.

Manchester has a world class, multimodal, integrated transport infrastructure which provides connectivity across the immediate conurbation and wider North West region and direct access to the rest of the UK and world.

Manchester Airport is the largest airport outside London flying to more than 225 destinations worldwide. Served by all major airlines, Manchester is truly internationally connected and Manchester Airport is the North’s only major international gateway.

With Manchester’s central geographical position in Great Britain, the city’s orbital and linear motorways provide direct and easy access to all UK cities.

Manchester offers fast and regular connections to surrounding conurbations and all major UK destinations, with high-speed rail services to London Euston, Birmingham, Liverpool and Edinburgh and a selection of cross country services.
