Manchester City Breaks

The place to be for shopping, night-life, art, music and industrial heritage.

If you're interested in really getting to know a city, then Manchester is the place for your Best Western short break! What’s more, our hotels boast prime positions in this popular city.

A Manchester weekend break staying at a Best Western hotel is highly recommended because of:

  • Arndale Centre
  • Salford Quays
  • Manchester Art Gallery
  • Old Trafford

From small, modern boutiques to large high street names, Manchester is a shopper’s paradise. With seven large shopping complexes in and around the centre of Manchester there’s something to suit everyone, and if you finally tire of shopping, you can visit one of the splendid art galleries, museums or restaurants.

So what is there to do in and around Manchester?

After your much needed retail therapy, take in a show at one of the numerous theatres, or rock til you drop at the MEN Arena. When you’re ready for a bite to eat then tantalise your taste buds at the UK's largest Chinatown or if spicy food is more your thing, then Manchester’s world famous Curry Mile is a must!

Manchester is much more than retail outlets and food emporiums - it's also a cultural paradise. No visit to this diverse city would be complete without a visit to The Lowry; or Ubris, Manchesters state-of-the-art urban life museum. The Manchester Museum houses over 6 million exhibits, displaying everything from a 200 million year old tree fossil to 'Old Billy', the skull of the world oldest horse (who lived to a ripe old age of 62).

Oh, and did you know that Manchester is home to one of the worlds' most successful football clubs ever? Of course you did! A tour of the 'Theatre of Dreams' is high on the list of places to visit by supporters of all ages.

Fancy travelling a little further afield?

Whilst Manchester itself doesn't have a beach, there are plenty of golden sandy stretches for you to enjoy within a short drive of the city centre.

Whether you fancy the bright lights of Blackpool, the secluded beauty of Morecambe Bay or England’s Classy Resort of Southport, where the legendary Red Rum trained on Ainsdale beach, there’s something for everyone!

Alternatively why not sail the tranquil waters of the beautiful Lake District, or visit the home of the Fab Four!

With so much to see and do in this buzzing and vibrant city, a trip to Manchester will live long in the memory!
