Some other places that you could take day trips to are Liverpool, Sheffield, Birmingham, and Coventry. Let’s go a little bit more into detail about some of the lovely places that you can travel to from Manchester.

Liverpool: Where The Beatles Began

Liverpool is among the most well-known British cities. It only takes a short train ride to get there. People all around the world come to Liverpool to see the place where The Beatles began, as well as enjoy some of the local sights - Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, for example. Beatles’ enthusiasts always pay a visit to the refurbished Cavern Club, where the group performed in front of local crowds in the 1960s before making it big. Another place not to miss is Paul McCartney’s childhood home, which is now a Beatles’ museum. There are souvenirs sold all around, and fans are sure to find something they’d love, whether it be shirts, artwork, or photos. If you want something a little bit more structured, sign up for a Cavern Walk, which is a walking tour covering many of the main Beatles attractions.

Little Moreton Hall: English Rural Life

In the village of Congleton lies Little Moreton Hall, slightly over 30 kilometers away from Manchester. People around say that it is one of the most beautiful half-timbered mansions remaining in England. This Hall is over five centuries old and is very well-preserved. It is built with exceptional materials and amazing workmanship, which is probably why it has stood the test of time. It houses a lovely courtyard, moat, and garden. You will be transported into another world as soon as yous tep pass the threshold of this mansion. The National Trust owns and manages this property, and there are quite a few tour options if you’d like to gain a little bit more information. The property also often holds events and programs that you can take part in.

Salford: The Works of L.S. Lowry

Salford is a mere 5 kilometers away from downtown Manchester. It is a university town, but has a lot of fantastic attractions. Ordsall Hall, for example, is several centuries old and houses a gorgeous Great Hall. You should definitely stop at Bridgewater Canal, a well-preserved waterway that has been in use for years. One of the main things that people stop by Salford for, however, is the art of L.S. Lowry. His works are showcased in an art gallery on Salford Quays. The Lowry Centre is beautifully constructed, and ornamented with Lowry’s inimitable work. The most iconic are those of Salford scenes, with “matchstick” figures. The Lowry Centre is also home to two incredible performing arts theaters.

Altrincham: The Old Market Town

Altrincham is known for being a market town. It has been operating for over 7 centuries, and people come from far and wide to pay a visit. You can stop by Stamford Park and take in some history. The town’s medieval market square is a great stop, though it can be depressing to take in the restored whipping post and the stories of thieves and accused witches that once stood there. One place that you shouldn’t miss is the Dunham Massey Hall. This property isn’t quite as old as the others covered in this article, but it has lovely architecture, grassy grounds, a deer park, and even a watermill. You are sure to enjoy the sights of this National Trust-owned hall.
