A Weekend in Manchester, England

Travel blogger Amanda Martin's guide to Manchester, UK

Hi, hello! I recently visited the UK on a ten day road trip....though the majority of the trip was spent in Scotland (see posts herehere and here), I flew in and out of Manchester, England and spent a whole weekend there exploring the surprisingly fun little city. My great grandmother was actually born and raised in Manchester, so it held a special place in my heart!

Manchester is a very industrial city filled with thick accents, history and its fair share of old British pubs. Mostly known for its soccer (I mean football) team, Manchester United, the city has so much more to it than just sports! It is definitely considered by many to be "up and coming," but boy is it coming! The restaurants, bars, pubs and shops are filled with trendy foods and hip, young people. If I lived in England, Manchester is a city I could see myself hanging out in for weekend trips with friends...bar hopping and just enjoying life. That being said, I don't think Manchester itself is worth an international trip alone.....but it is definitely worth a stop if you're traveling around England / Great Britain.
