What is the project?

With the UK’s 3rd largest airport, and direct connections from over 220 destinations, Manchester is an ideal gateway to the North of England.  Once birthplace of the industrial revolution, today Manchester is a vibrant city, home to two of the world’s greatest football clubs, BBC North, some of England’s finest shopping, and cutting-edge culture.

Now visitors can explore more of this lively city, with a range of new tours and experiences.  There’s also a whole host of new day and overnight excursions so visitors can discover what the rest of the North of England has to offer, from stunning national parks to historic cities, using Manchester as a starting point.
