Your next Greater Glasgow to Manchester adventure awaits
It'd be hard to disagree that Greater Glasgow to Manchester flights connect one great post-industrial city to another, except perhaps to politely point out that Glasgow got there first. Over the last few decades, Manchester has completely re-invented itself and is now a beacon of modernity in Northern England, especially with its recent skyscrapers that have boldly pushed its skyline where few UK cities dare – the jaw-dropping Beetham Tower being a case in point. Another highlight is the alternative club scene that is still the driving force behind the UK music scene. There will simply be something for everyone on your Greater Glasgow to Manchester adventure?

What to do when in Manchester
Manchester has a myriad of monuments to explore. There are Roman remains, a medieval castle and Victorian warehouses. Its Gothic Cathedral has a sombre charm, while Manchester Central Library is a veritable temple to the art of writing. If you head to the Northern Quarter, you'll find yourself in the hippest part of town, where vibrant graffiti is scribbled across cutting-edge galleries. However, the spirit of Manchester truly sparks in its people, and their warmth and embraces are enough to dispel any rainy-day blues.
