A keystone of the North, a city of wild vibes and smiling people, Manchester rarely fails to enthrall. In this town of industrial proportions, where cotton mills and Victorian workhouses used to command the skyline, it's possible to roar on the Red Dragons and wonder at Gothic Revival masterpieces in the same day. The fabled Northern Quarter always beckons too, lighting up the senses with its gritty music dives and creative food kitchens. Multiculturalism oozes through the blocks at every turn, popping up with the dim sum houses of Chinatown, or bubbling in vats of Rajasthani curry in Rusholme. It’s a metropolis powered by students, loved by locals and exciting to travellers, and you can throw yourself into its energy by bagging one of the Manchester holiday rentals today.
If you're determined not to be just another fly-in visitor to this grand Victorian city, then it's certainly worth considering holiday rentals in Manchester. Offering lots more space, and all the features you're used to back at home – proper kitchen facilities, large lounges, multiple rooms for the whole family – they are great for experiencing town like a true local. What's more, ebookers makes it really easy to find holiday apartments in Manchester to suit any sort of trip, whether you’re heading over for a business break to a convention centre, a football jaunt to Old Trafford, or are poised for a hedonistic weekend partying through the Northern Quarter.
During the football season, you might just be able to hear the roaring crowds in Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium, while the cricket terraces and the rugby pitches come alive with thousands of fans at other times of the year. Joining the party to cheer on your team of choice can be a great way to feel the pulse of local life. If you'd prefer not to get sporty, then how about a trip to the acclaimed Imperial War Museum North to unravel sobering tales of World War 2, or an artistic foray into the exhibits of the rich Manchester Art Gallery? Night time provides visitors with a another top thing to do: partying in the Northern Quarter. Folk go there to hear twanging blues and jazz and independent rock, echoing between the craft bars and old industrial depots.
Manchester is home to one of the most efficient tram systems in the UK, so be sure to make use of those sleek, air-conditioned carriages if you're looking to whizz from place to place in the city centre. Buses are a fine alternative for getting to and from any Manchester holiday apartments that aren't close to a tram stop, with regular routes running past the main train interchanges of Victoria and Piccadilly. You certainly won't need to think about hiring a car if you plan on limiting your trip to the heart of the town and the Northern Quarter, but it could be useful if you're looking to bag a stay in the rolling backcountry of the pretty Peak District or Cheshire Plain.
