Manchester is a wonderful city to live in, for a whole host of reasons, from the astounding citizens to its vibrant culture and exciting atmosphere. While there’s no place like home, it’s still nice to get away for the day, the week or even longer! Making this city even more wonderful is how easily accessible it is to visit other places. Here are four easy places that you can visit from Manchester.
Who doesn’t love a day out at the beach? Blackpool incorporates all the usual seaside town attributes; fish and chip restaurants, arcades and tourist shops. However, it’s so much more than that! The pleasure beach is a magnificent funfair that can be enjoyed by everyone from little children to thrill seekers. There is also Madame Tussauds and the famous Blackpool Tower for plenty to see and do. Travel time from Manchester is approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes.
Usually accessible in around 1 hour, Chester is a beautiful city. Founded as a Roman fortress, Chester still encompasses every sense of its roots with stunning architecture and the remains of a Roman amphitheatre.
