City information

Manchester is a beautiful city, where you can find history and different things to do in every street. Manchester is, in general terms, a safe location. However, we recommend that you abstain from visiting isolated areas during the night. Taxis are cheap, so we advise that you take one rather than walk for long stretches at night.

If it’s your first time in Manchester, you can access for all the activities in the city here.
