This weekend I went to Manchester, which is situated in the North-West of England. Here are some lovely Pinterest pictures of the city itself. Usually tourists tend to think of only going to London when visiting England, but Manchester is a city with so much to offer. Here is a taster of some things to do there:
- Manchester used to have a huge cotton industry so it used to be teeming with mills, and at the same time it is also a hub for scientific research. You can find out all about the history of Manchester’s cotton industry and contribution to science at MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry).
- Arty types should visit Manchester Art Gallery which is beautifully decorated and has both classic and contemporary art.
- John Rylands Library is a simply stunning library housed in a neo-Gothic Victorian building.
Food wise: For a quick and cheap lunch, visit Katsouris Deli on Deansgate. If you want traditional British grub for dinner, try Tom’s Chop House. If you can manage to push the budget a bit, try fusional restaurant Australasia.
Overall I highly recommend Manchester! Have you been to Manchester before? What did you think of the city?
