How about a trip to Manchester after lockdown?

Last updated on May 5th, 2024 at 01:52 pm

Are you planning a trip far and wide? Or closer to home? There is no harm in getting a bit of inspiration while we are stuck indoors. What else is there to do? I know I have been looking for adventures that the kids and us, adults will both love.

Perhaps a trip to Manchester? We are lucky enough to have Manchester on our front door step. It’s such a lovely city with so much to do.

Have you been before?

I thought I would share with you a handful of our favorite activities to do and some that we can’t wait to try out soon.

We have done about 50% of things to do in Manchester and working our way through it. We can’t wait for lockdown to open up and get back to our family adventures. It’s really a great city to visit and worth a trip to Manchester.

We have been known to book a hotel in the city for a weekend getaway, for date nights and girlie weekends too. Granny babysits the kids and we get some adult time together. There is even more to do for couples wanting a weekend break.

Manchester really is a beautiful city that should be on your next travel destination list. It’s worth coming from a far if you aren’t near it but also just as much worthy of a trip even if it’s on your front door step.

Why not make a Pinterest board for your future travel plans. It really helps with lockdown when you can focus on something positive in the near future. Don’t forget this to your board to refer to later and share to your followers. They might need some travel inspiration too.

Please look out for any and all restrictions according to government website before making travel plans to this area.
