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.
