Before planning my trip to Manchester, I have sought suggestions and opinions about the city. With huge surprise, most of them were negative ones: “It’s just a grimy city made of old dirty bricks”… “Industries, industries and industries. That’s all” … “There’s nothing interesting”… “Don’t waste your time and money in Manchester”. You know what? Those words made me more interested and motivated to leave.
So, I bought my Lonely Planet travel guide, booked flights, hotel and packed my luggage.
If you like sunny and warm places, Manchester (and England in general) isn’t the right place for you. But, if you like the iconic old Brit bricks, live concerts, beer, pubs, football, history and innovation… well, be my guests!
Starting with the old town you can’t miss:
- John Rylands Library
- Town Hall and Albert Square
- Tib street Market
- Graffiti of the Ancoats area
Feeling hungry and thirsty?
And bare in mind: do not let others’ opinions be your final choice. Never!
