Manchester is a city that easily blends historic sites, quirky areas such as Chinatown and The Village, with buzzing cultural life and, of course, its major sporting attractions. These sports grounds centre around test cricket at Old Trafford and the stadiums that are home to Manchester City and Manchester United football clubs, all of which offer visitors' tours. Castlefield is both the ancient Roman and old industrial heart of Manchester. Home to the Castlefield Canal Basin and the Museum of Science and Industry, it was the United Kingdom's first UNESCO Urban Heritage Site. Take a drive around the city to get your bearings before planning an action packed day out.
If your passion is history then head towards Wales and visit the fascinating Roman sites at Chester. Stroll around the Roman city walls and browse shops that line the narrow cobbled streets. Roman remains include the Amphitheatre and Roman Gardens, while some city centre shops and cafes have basements that reveal ancient archaeology. Chester is also home to a world-famous zoo, known for its elephant collection and unique bat cave. A fun and educational visit for the whole family.

The city is home to several conference and exhibition centres but the main ones are EventCity and the Manchester Central Convention Complex.
