Top 3 Things To Do in Manchester

Imperial War Museum North, Manchester

Imperial War Museum North

This multi-award winning version of its London counterpart is a gem in Manchester’s glittering gallery scene. The building, designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, is intended to unsettle the senses as soon as you enter in order to convey the unsettling nature of war. With poignant and thought-provoking exhibits – though not as melancholic as you might expect – you can get hands-on with some of the objects and venture up the 29 metre Air Shard viewing platform to take in panoramic views across the city. Follow your visit with a walk through The Quays and MediaCity, home to TV studios, restaurants and The Lowry Centre. Or take a short tram ride back to Manchester city centre.

John Rylands Library

You’ll be forgiven for thinking you have walked into a gothic cathedral when you enter John Rylands Library for the first time. Opening in 1900, the library was a gift to the city of Manchester and its people. It houses medieval manuscripts, and a fragment from the Gospel of John – the oldest known piece of the New Testament – among many other priceless treasures. Located on Deansgate just minutes from Manchester city centre, it’s easily accessible on foot or free Metro-Shuttle buses run from Piccadilly, Oxford Road and Victoria train stations. Trains to Manchester Airport from Manchester Piccadilly, and other central stations, take just 20 minutes and run every 10 minutes, seven days a week.
