Outings in the city
Anyone remotely interested in soccer can’t visit Mancunia without taking a tour of Old Trafford, home of the world’s most famous football club, Manchester United. Fans can jog down the players’ tunnel, and try to kick a ball as hard as Wayne Rooney in the stadium’s museum.
Those who consider shopping a sport love what Manchester has to offer. For a high-end, big-brand spree, King Street is the place to be. Travellers can find quirkier one-off items and local talent in the Northern Quarter at stores like Retro Rehab and No Angel.
Food and Tea Rooms
A great new addition to the city’s landscape of eateries, Richmond Tea Rooms is a Tim Burtonesque take on British tradition. Clashing and colourful, it takes high tea even higher.
Food lovers head to Isinglass for its down-to-earth Mancunian approach to going local. Traditional British dishes like Cumberland Sausage and Mash are made with ingredients sourced from close-to-home.
