Manchester is a city where visitors can really benefit from hiring a car. Doing so allows them to experience not just the buzz of city life, but also the tranquillity of nearby rural areas.
The city centre is home to some of the best shopping outside London with a host of famous names and boutique stores and if you can't find what you are looking for in the city then take a trip out to the Trafford Centre, one of Europe's largest shopping centres.
The city is also known for its two major football clubs and you can pay a visit to either of the grounds. Both Old Trafford and the City of Manchester Stadium are just a short drive from the city centre and offer guided tours for those who want to get a sense of the clubs’ respective histories.
If you prefer things a little more sedate, you will not be disappointed. Manchester is surrounded by amazing countryside. To the north, you will find the Forest of Bowland and beyond that the fabulous Lake District, while to the south-east, you will find the Peak District National Park.
