Things to do in Manchester.
You have your reason for coming to Manchester, but you’d like to have a look around the city and get to know where places are.
Lots of choices again, as there are many excellent guide books available. Pop into the Visit Manchester shop, arm yourself with a map and start exploring. Use the free buses to get around the city, or buy a day ticket for the Metrolink system. Take a guided walk from The Central Library at 11am every day at just £8.00 per person, there’s no need to book just turn up.
