Manchester travel tips

1) Hula Tiki Lounge in Manchester offers outstanding night activities

Head to 11 Stevenson Square street in Manchester to join the “Rum Cruise” Hula Tiki Lounge on the last Thursday of the month for a free Caribbean rum tasting. Local DJs perform every Friday and Saturday. And on the last Monday of each month, they hold Sticky Tiki (a group drinking game with prizes with mixed music).

2) Head to Altrincham Market by car after 18:00 to get free parking

Bear in mind that if you come to Altrincham Market in Manchester by car after 18:00, you will be able to park your car for free. The food market and street food scenes are flourishing here. Being built in 1858, it will impress you with its beautiful design. Whatever you buy here, accompany it with cinnamon pies and eat on the go because you will not resist its flavour.

3) The best panoramic view of Manchester opens from a giant Ferris wheel

Get on the Ferris wheel in the Millenium quarter to see the best panoramic view of the city of Manchester. The height of the attraction reaches more than 50 meters above the ground. Try to get there in the daytime, when the viewing range reaches up to 30 kilometres.
