About Manchester

Manchester may be a riverside town, but as the second most populated area in England, is certainly not a sleepy city. Home to a world famous football club and rich in history and culture, it’s a thriving, modern, financial hub. In fact, Lonely Planet listed Manchester as one of the Top Visit Cities for 2016. So, it is easy to see why Londoners are moving there and why it has become such a sought after tourist destination.


Best time to visit

As with most cities in the United Kingdom, summer is generally the best season. That’s when the weather is warm and there are plenty of outdoor activities and sightseeing experiences to enjoy. From June to August, Manchester really comes alive, but the period between September and December is also a great time of year to visit.


Transport from airport to city:

Manchester’s public transport system is top-notch and travellers have a wide range of options to choose from. You will find 8-10 trains running into the city every hour during the week and 4 every hour on Sundays. There are over 500 taxi companies operating from the airport, making this an easy and reliable choice. Skyline buses run every half an hour from Manchester Airport and there is also a 24 hour bus service available.
