Re: Suggestions for a 10 day stay in Manchester

Depends what you'd like to do.

There are 3 theatres showing different types of shows, The Opera House, The Palace Theatre and then the Lowry centre. Theres quite a few museums and art galleries dotted around the place. Theres a good museum in the uni campus lots of good biological stuff if you're into that.

Pleanty of shops for shopping and bars and stuff if you like drinking.

10 days in Manchester? Suggestions?

Take a Virgin Train down to London your 3rd/4th day there

Not more than 2 hours I believe.
If you're in the North, you should go to York. York is a nice city .
I think you catch the Manchester Airport - Scarborough train from either the Airport or Manchester Picadilly.

I think its around 2 to 2 and a half hours to London.

I've lived in Manchester for 5 years on and off for Uni and i really like it. London on the other hand is horrible, too big.

what the fuck does one do for 10 days in manchester? its such a horrible place.
take the fastest train to london or even further to paris and spend of the rest of the time there.

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Try to get a ticket for the greatest football team on earth, Manchester City!

There are also beautiful National parks within daytrip distance, (Peak District, Lake District) maybe go on a guided tour? Liverpool would be worth a daytrip too...

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!
