Four days in Manchester

Jump to last reply

Hi, our plans are shaping up for later this spring/summer and I just wanted to run this rough draft by you -- thanks for your feedback. There will be four of us (two parents, two teens) and it's possible the kiddos may split off to do some of this on their own or do different things altogether. This is a budget trip for us with a primary focus on checking out the uni one daughter likes and getting a feel for the city/area before we head on to London and Frankfurt.

Day 1
- arrival in Manchester 9am
- take Nat'l Rail from airport into city so we get free public transit the rest of the day
- drop off luggage early at hostel, then get SIM cards and groceries
- explore Deansgate/Castlefield area
- check into hostel, nap if needed
- optional: evening, explore intu Trafford Centre and Chinese lantern festival

Day 2
- a.m. check out John Rylands Library and/or city hall
- weather permitting, day trip to Edale for short Peak District hike (get Wayfarer tickets which are cheaper than buying individual tickets)

Day 3
- use free Metroshuttles to get around
- day: uni visit for daughter
- evening: Canal Street, Chinatown? (or relax in hostel)
- night: laundry and pack up

Day 4:
- use free Metroshuttles to get around
- a.m. uni visit continued
- early afternoon: depart for London
