A city rich in Industrial Revolution history, Manchester is also a great base from which to explore the north of England given its easy access into the Peak District National Park. Here are a few ways to see the best in and around England’s second city from London.

Manchester Highlights
  • Take a stadium tour of Old Trafford, home of Manchester United Football Club—one of the United Kingdom’s most famous soccer teams.
  • Step back in time to the days of World War II and learn how Manchester’s residents survived the Blitz, at the Imperial War Museum North.
  • Stroll through the Manchester Museum, home to valuable treasures from the natural world spanning thousands of years.
  • Explore one of the largest collections of rare books and manuscripts in the United Kingdom at the John Rylands Library.
  • Wander among ancient trees and see the changing of the seasons in Didsbury Park, Fletcher Moss Park & Botanical Gardens, Parsonage Gardens, or St. John's Gardens.
  • Admire top attractions and landmarks such as Albert Square, Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, and Manchester Cathedral on a city walking tour.

Things to Know
  • Manchester lies 200 miles (322 kilometers) northwest of London, a journey of about 4.5 hours by road.
  • For a quicker trip of about two hours, many travelers visit Manchester by train from London to Manchester Piccadilly station. Once you’ve arrived, there’s an extensive bus network.
  • Manchester is a large city, but the majority of the top attractions are within walking distance—good walking shoes are recommended.
  • The weather in the north of England is notoriously changeable, even in summer, so packing a waterproof layer is recommended.
