Travel Tips to Manchester (MAN)
Manchester – football and more
If you´re a football fan, you will likely be familiar with Manchester United. However, Manchester has many other attractions to offer that you might´ve missed. For example: a flight to Manchester gives you the chance to stroll around sprawling parks and gardens, have a look at important art collections and visit the oldest railway station in the world. Manchester´s buildings have layers upon layers of history. In fact, some buildings date back to the beginning of the 19th century. Victorian buildings are especially impressive, like the Manchester Town Hall which was built in 1877.
Manchester’s amazing museums
The unique cotton mill Quarry Bank Mill functions as the only European museum that has a horizontal steam engine and a beam engine. Another highlight is the 50 tonne water wheel from 1818, and the 100-HP engine operated several machines of the cotton mill. After 1894, the cotton spinning mill was installed, producing cotton at the Quarry Bank Mill until 1959. These days, you can watch how cotton used to be traditionally produced in this very special museum. As well as a guided tour through the rooms, the tour also includes the former bedrooms, the kitchen and the classrooms.
Shopping in Manchester
You should bring ample cash with you on your trip, because Manchester is a shopping paradise. If your main interest is clothes then you should consider the Arndale shopping centre and Market Street: you will find many stores owned by several major fashion chains.
