And on the 6th Day, God created MANchester...
Oh Manchester, so much to answer for! If you're looking for a city break to remember, then get your bags packed and book a holiday in Manchester. The city of Manchester is situated in England’s North West region. It lies in the county of Greater Manchester and is surrounded by some of the country's most renowned physical attractions such as the Cheshire Plain and the Pennines. Boasting warm-spirited locals and great cuisine (there's no chance of getting a chippy tea so tasty in London – and don't even get us started on the gravy!), Manchester’s numerous tourist attractions include Albert Square - a picturesque public square at the heart of the city. It is dominated by the famous Manchester Town hall and several beautiful monuments including the Albert Memorial. Indeed, the Albert Square serves as a great starting point for any city centre tours. Located close to the shopping district and the city's two great universities, you're well placed to visit the home of Manchester's 25 Nobel Prize winners and make a pilgrimage to Primark too.
Enjoy the cream of Manchester with a great apartment rental holiday
If you're on the pursuit of knowledge during your stay in our Manchester apartments, don't let your journey stop at the Universities. At the Museum of Science & Industry, you'll learn all sorts about the city's industrial heritage. With great interactive features that will keep both kids and big kids entertained for hours, your minds will be buzzing by the end of even a brief tour here. You're bound to have worked up an appetite during this time, so pick up your picnic matt and head out to one of the city's great green spots and enjoy the sun... or more likely, the glorious Manchester drizzle. Hey, count yourself lucky, we have to live with it all year round! Moving beyond the city centre, you'll find plenty of activities to engage in if you're a fan of the great outdoors. Manchester’s six splendid local nature Reserves - Blackley Forest, Highfield Country Park, Clayton Vale and Chorlton Ees, Boggart Hole Clough, Ivy Green and Chorlton Water Park - are certainly well worth visiting and have been at the forefront of teaching natives and tourists alike about the city’s flora, fauna, wildlife and geological features.
Champione Champione – there must be something in the water!
It wouldn't be right to talk about Manchester without mentioning its incredibly successful sporting teams. With Manchester United and Manchester City the city is home to some of England's most celebrated football teams. Less celebrated, but equally successful is the region's ice hockey team, Manchester Phoenix. English Premier League winners during the 2010/2011 season, the team will soon be launching another attack for the up-coming season from their base at the Altrincham Ice Dome. Under the watchful eye of Britain's very own 'Great One', (Sir) Tony Hand and boasting some of the best young talent in the United Kingdom, you'd have to fancy their chances. So if you're looking for a great-value night-out amongst the North West's most passionate sports fans, bring all the family down to the Phoenix's nest and enjoy some fast-paced fun! To make the most of your time in this great city, be sure to book Manchester accommodation in advance and close to the region's public transport network. That way you'll be able to get from the city centre to Altrincham and beyond!
