Choose any one of our two hotels in Manchester and a great city
is on your doorstep. It pulses with life, famous for football,
music and feisty attitude. Full of museums, art, and some of the
best shopping around, Manchester is as the saying goes 'mad for
'It' might be the magnificent and moving Imperial War Museum
North. This tells how war shapes life, through unique objects,
sounds and moving pictures. Local heritage sites celebrate
Lancashire's days of cotton spinning and textiles. In Castlefield,
you'll find traces of the world's first passenger railway and canal
system. The People's History Museum explains how other pioneers and
heroes fought to bring the ballot to the people. Modern heroes go
into battle in shining football stadia like Old Trafford, well
worth a tour.
Art lovers will adore the tribute to local artist LS Lowry that
is the Lowry in Salford. This stunning ship-like building on the
Manchester Ship Canal is full of drama, art, dance and family fun.
Typically Manchester, in fact.
