Located in England’s heartland, Manchester is a diverse and lively city that comes alive at night with a seemingly endless list of things to do and see, while its surrounding landscape offers an abundance of natural beauty.
A Day Out In The City Of Manchester:
Home to two of world football’s biggest clubs, there can be no better place to start your day out than with the Manchester United Museum & Stadium tour. Following this, just a 15-minute drive away, is the Trafford Quays leisure village where you can delve into the exciting activities offered, such as indoor skydiving and skiing, a large children’s amusement centre and adventure golf.
Plan A Road Trip Through The Nearby Nature Reserves:
For visitors hoping to venture off the beaten path and enjoy Greater Manchester’s outstanding natural beauty then look no further than a drive into the Pennines. Kick-start the day’s excursion in the city centre by hiring an Enterprise vehicle at our Manchester city centre branch. Then, just a short drive down the road is Chetham’s Library. This historic building dates back to 1653 and is the oldest public library in the UK. Just a 20-minute drive further out there’s the Ordsall Hall; the gorgeous Grade I listed Tudor building dates back to 1177. It is rumoured to be where Guy Fawkes hatched the plan for the gunpowder plot and is supposedly haunted. From here, it’s just under an hour’s drive before you’re immersed in the Pennines and its array of luscious green hills and narrow valleys.
