Attractions in Manchester England
As the second largest metropolis in England, Manchester has plenty to offer in the way of attractions and delightful things to do. The Manchester Museum houses over four million specimens and objects, as well as the oldest collection from Egypt in the United Kingdom. Additionally, the Museum of Science and Industry offers an interactive experience, outlining the scientific and industrial history of Manchester.
For those looking to view inspiring art and collections of creative relics, the Manchester Art Gallery provides access to more than 25,000 works. Notably, the Gallery of Costume has recently opened to the public again after a massive renovation. Those interested in the history of fashion will find the displays to be an incredible treat.
The Manchester Cathedral on Victoria Street, also known as St. Mary's and Christ Church, is one of the city's oldest landmarks. Built in the late 1400s, the church has undergone several restorations, most notably after the Manchester Blitz during the Second World War. The ancient architecture of this gorgeous cathedral is definitely worth a visit.
For a unique experience and stunning views, the Wheel of Manchester is an excellent choice. At 60 metres in the air, with 42 capsules capable of holding eight passengers, the ride provides views of Manchester that are unique.
Manchester is also a city full of architectural delights, and there is no shortage of shopping and entertainment options. The Printworks is a state of the art entertainment complex near the city centre and this self-contained megalith is home to restaurants, bars, a gym, and a cinema.
In the surrounding areas near each attraction, there are several Manchester hotels, with several clustered near the Cathedral and the Art Gallery.
