If you’ve been to Manchester, you know how much it rains. It can also be difficult to find something to do which doesn’t leave you stuck outside in the cold. Here are five places you can visit, regardless of the weather!
Breakout Manchester is a live escape room game located in the city centre. Players are locked in a room with up to five people (friends, colleagues, family – we recommend you pick people you can work with), and you all have an hour to solve a series of puzzles and tasks to escape. There are no physical activities or challenges involved – it’s based purely on your own intelligence.
The Museum of Science and Industry
The Museum of Science and Industry is a short walk away from Deansgate tram stop. The museum is home to the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station and the first railway warehouse. Apart from trains, the museum hosts a range of amazing objects, with interactive exhibits to engage both adults and children alike.
Part of the University of Manchester, Manchester Museum is the UK’s leading university museum. With exhibits about dinosaurs, Ancient Egypt and plants, there is something to interest everyone. The museum is now open again to members of the public – just in time for the colder weather!
Almost 600 years old, Manchester Cathedral is an important landmark in the city centre. The cathedral is open every day and is free to enter, however if you wish to take photos, they ask visitors to make a small donation. Full of history, you don’t want to miss one of the most interesting churches in the country.
The Trafford Centre
Located just outside the city centre, the Trafford Centre has everything to keep adults and children entertained. All under cover, there are a range of shops and different eateries to experience. If you are worried about children getting bored, there is also an arcade, a cinema and sea life centre. The Trafford Centre really does have it all.
With a range of activities on offer, the rain won’t hold you back!
