Don't Go Home Without

The unforgettable Canal Street, 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, is the heart of Manchester's Gay Village, the setting for the popular TV show "Queer as Folk." A centre for LGBT culture in the UK, the street has also become the site of Manchester's most vibrant nightlife. There are bars, pubs and clubs of every stripe, as well as annual events such as Manchester Pride.

Must See

Quarry Bank Mill in Styal, Cheshire, England, is one of the best preserved textile mills of the Industrial Revolution and is now a museum of the cotton industry. It is one of Britain's greatest industrial heritage sites and is home to a complete industrial community. The mill is situated only 4.5 miles from the hotel, and it is a great family day out with the National Trust.

Must Do

Catch a top-class Premiership football match at Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium or at the Etihad Stadium, home of local rivals Manchester City, both under 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. If there's no game during your visit, book a behind-the-scenes tour to visit the pitch and the dressing rooms, meet local football legends, and relive iconic sporting moments in the clubs' museums.

Local Tips

You can combine shopping with a family day out at the The Trafford Centre, 15 minutes from the hotel by car. Browse more than 200 stores, from designer boutiques to high-street favourites, and choose from dozens of restaurants and cafés when you need a break. Restless kids can try rock climbing and laser tag, spot sharks at the SEA LIFE Aquarium or build models at the LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre.
