All about Manchester

When to visit

Summer is when Manchester is at its best. Open-air concerts and festivals happen most weekends, and the Manchester Pride Festival celebrates the city’s LGBTQ+ scene with pizzazz every August. Whenever you visit, pack layers and an umbrella in your suitcase: Rain is common year-round, and even the sunniest of days can start with gray skies and showers.

Getting around

Manchester is well connected with an international airport and several major train stations. Compact and walkable, its central zone 1 is laid out largely in a grid system, making it difficult to get lost. Car rentals aren’t worth the hassle due to chaotic traffic and limited parking. To explore further afield, use the cheap buses instead; you can pay by card on board, or hop on the free bus that offers three city routes.

Traveler tips

Manchester’s neon-lit stretch of curry houses sprawls along Wilmslow Road in Rusholme. The vibe here is edgy—not so ideal for a family night out—but the array of authentic curry houses makes a visit worthwhile. After a 10-minute bus ride from the center, you’ll find Pakistani, Indian, Sri Lankan, and Bangladeshi cuisine at your feet. Most restaurants stay open until the early hours but are unlicensed for alcohol. If you want to drink, you need to bring your own booze.
