Exploring Manchester

Manchester boasts plenty of culture, charm and shopping as well as a vibrant and lively nightlife.

Yet, while some people relish the call for adventure, some are more reluctant to travel unprepared – especially if you are bringing your family with you. 

To help with this, here's a brief guide to Manchester, with some tips on what you can expect.


The city has a very unique culture. Manchester has absorbed influences from all over the world, which can be seen primarily through in its vast range of food and, perhaps more importantly, its shopping.

Whether it’s the Arndale shopping centre, the unique stores in the North Quarter or the surrounding areas, Manchester delivers unique experiences that will surely please shoppers. Whatever you're after, it caters to all walks of life. 

Likewise, it also has some great art and history museums which offer slightly more relaxing pursuits.


If you're not bringing the children with you, however, Manchester is also ideal for a night-life. It can range from a relaxing evening at a restaurant or quiet bar to a long and busy night out either Deansgate or the North Quarter – both are known for some unique and special experiences. The little pubs, cafés and restaurants can be found all over, too.

Getting around

So how do you get here?

Manchester is a big city but the centre itself can easily be travelled by foot. If you're coming from a distance, taking a train to either Manchester Piccadilly or Oxford station is a good option - they’re only minutes away from the centre - but you can also travel by taxi for a more convenient door-to-door service.

Of course, some journeys can still take a long time - particularly during busy periods. In this case, taking a taxi from Minicabster can get you to your destination – the city is well connected and its road system offers direct access. Minicabs are also much quicker and more efficient than the bus system.
