Our home in the North

Visit the city that’s had more than its fair share of football glory, home to not one but two premier league winners. Take a trip to the iconic football stadiums: Old Trafford, home to Manchester United, and Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City, learn about their long-standing rivalry and maybe even pick a side.

If football is not your thing, book a tour at Cloudwater Brew Co. – a must visit for beer enthusiasts or stop by The Arndale for a bit of shopping. If you’re around during winter, don’t miss the festive annual Christmas Market and sample international cuisine or shop for gifts handcrafted by local producers.
