GroupRail to Manchester

GroupRail to metropolitan Manchester for some fast-paced living. Manchester has it all from architecture, galleries and museums to fun and bustling bars, great places to eat and everything in between.


Architecture meets literature in Manchester’s two beautiful libraries, the John Ryland and Manchester Central. Expect more than dusty bookshelves.


Manchester is home to a multitude of museums. Get learning at the National football museum or if sport isn’t your thing head over to the museum of science and industry. For local history check out the Manchester museum to feel inspired by your surroundings.


Sporting fans should book a tour of the Old Trafford or the Etihad football stadium, pending on where your loyalties lie.

Get Active

Try something new at the Chill factore for some dry slope skiing or if you are feeling inspired by the Olympics have a go at cycling in a velodrome. It’s harder than it looks. For something slightly less technical jump for joy at the Go trampoline air park.


Art lovers will adore the Whitworth art gallery and home. The Manchester Art Gallery is also well worth a visit- the architecture alone is enough to warrant a trip.


Chinatown in Manchester is the biggest in the U.K outside of London. Just saying. If Chinatown isn’t for you Manchester also has a huge variety of other cuisines for you to enjoy.


Manchester Arndale will cater to your shopping needs. Home to over 200 shops you’re sure to find something you love.


Attend a show in Manchester’s stunning Palace theatre for a unique and exciting experience.


Wander around Manchester’s parks and green spaces. Visit Heaton Park or the Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden for some breathing time away from the city.

To conclude: A weekend in Manchester is never a bad idea.
