Hmmm - what to do in the Scousish north ? Head south !  Smile

There's the Peak district, which is lovely, and Chester, and Sale, if you like history. Granada TV Studios, if you like English soap opera, or there's the famous Flat Cap and Whippet Museum, always well worth a visit. Much as I shudder to recommend this, there's always Blackpool Pleasure Beach - very chavvish but a lorra lorra laffs, so I'm told (I haven't been).

Manchester's a fantastic and buzzing city (I'm very biased). None of the UK's big cities are quite as old as London, but what they might lack in splendour and history, they make up for in atmosphere.

Manchester is also within an hour's journey of some of the best of the UK.....for example Liverpool, and the ancient cities of Chester and York (a really beautiful place). If you're into the great outdoors, there's also the national parks of the Peak District, Lake District and North Yorkshire within easy reach. The scenery and castles of North Wales are worth exploring.

I've been here for 37 years and there's so much to see and do, I've hardly scratched the surface.

We have 2 Castles, neither of which is in Douglas, a working steam railway, a working electric railway (both more efficient than anything on the big island), sheep with horns that'd make kirkie wince, a thriving offshore banking industry - and people in Foxdale with two heads who have never been near Winscale!! Big grin

It is the City of Manchester stadium originally constructed for the Commonwealth Games which were held in Manchester (which turned out to be a big success) and was later installed as the new home of Manchester City.

You could always go and watch a game - there's always plenty of spare seats, unlike at Old Trafford where you join a five year waiting list...

Quoting LH477 (Reply 35):

The curry mile is absolutely fantastic. A night out with mates in Manchester always has to finish up somewhere along the curry mile. Not somewhere I'd really suggest to go during the daytime as a tourist attraction, but certainly go for a decent curry in the evening.

If you are planning on visiting the Peak District then Chesterfield is very nice, good market, nice scenery, and it has a good football team.

Quoting FLYtoEGCC (Reply 36):

I'll second that. The curry mile is a must. Best time is about 1am when it's absolutely buzzing, if you're out clubbing in the city centre it's about ten minutes by bus, which run frequently all night. Manchester is a very lively 24 hour city, hence its popularity with the young, and students in particular

Funny you should say that - it's my home town. If you head over that way, the town is worth a visit for the Crooked Spire and a walk round the market but I wouldn't say there's a whole day's worth of activity there; far better to go into the Peak District and visit Chatsworth, Bakewell and Eyam, all of which are pretty much between Manchester and Chesterfield.

I'll ignore the bit about the good football team... [hides head in embarrassment]

EDIT: I should add, if you're into beer, try making a night of the Brampton Mile - the mile of road from the centre of Chesterfield to the west contains 18 pubs, some of which do excellent ales (and some which only do lagery p*ss.) I've never done it, but I'm led to believe a pint in each pub followed by a few in the town centre can lead to a "fun" night and a not-so-fun next morning...
