An introduction to Manchester
Manchester is a major city in the north-west of England, with its roots dating back to the 1st century AD. Once a small town, Manchester flourished during the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries, when the area was best-known for textile manufacturing. In recent years, the city has been extensively regenerated and old buildings sit comfortably beside modern skyscrapers, making it a fascinating destination for people on weekend city breaks.
Manchester in brief
Manchester lies in the north-west of the country, with the Pennines to the north and east of the city. An estimated 512,000 people live in Manchester, but many more visit for business and leisure purposes. In fact, the city is currently the third most visited in the UK, with only London and Edinburgh attracting more foreign tourists.
What not to miss
Visitors staying in holiday apartments in Manchester often go for weekend breaks, meaning they have limited time to take in the city's many sights. Here is a short list of landmarks that are often included on tourists' itineraries:
Manchester Town Hall - This is often described as the most important Victorian building in England. Built in the neo-Gothic style and completed in 1877, the structure features an 85m-tall bell tower with 23 bells and houses the city council and various local government departments.
Manchester Monastery - Built between 1863 and 1867, this impressive building once housed the Franciscan order until they left in 1989. It has since been restored and visitors can take guided tours around the architectural masterpiece. It can also be hired out for events such as weddings.
John Rylands Library - This ancient-looking building was in fact only constructed just over a century ago. Visitors are advised to make the most of the guided tours of the library, which houses a number of interesting items, including the oldest surviving fragment of the New Testament.
Stockport Air Raid Shelters - Those interested in the Second World War should make time to visit these reconstructed tunnels, which were the largest purpose-built air raid shelters in the country. Up to 6,500 people were able to shelter beneath the town centre, and those visiting the tunnels today can hear wartime stories as told by local people.
How to get to the city
Manchester is easily reached from Manchester Airport, which is located less than ten miles from the city centre. An airport railway station enables visitors to reach the centre in under 20 minutes, while cheaper but slower journeys can be made by bus.
When to go
There is always something going on in Manchester, so there isn't really a bad time to visit. However, Britain is notorious for its grey weather, so those wanting a chance of sunshine would do well to travel to the UK in the summer months.
If you're planning a trip to the UK, why not take a look at our holiday apartments in Manchester? We offer high quality accommodation in key central locations that is often much more affordable than staying in a hotel.
