Unofficially dubbed the Capital of the North, Manchester is known for its influence on industry and music, as well as its world-renowned connection to sports.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Manchester: Northwich (Vale Royal Falconry Centre & Stockley Farm Birds of Prey Centre), Norton Priory Museum and Gardens (in Runcorn) and Liverpool (Mendips - John Lennon Home, Williamson’s Tunnels – Friends of Williamson’s Tunnels, &more). Pack the 15th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at York Maze. There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Great Orme, get engrossed in the history at National Railway Museum, explore the activities along Easedale Tarn, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

Plan my Manchester trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
