Manchester, the heart art of Northern England, living up to its name of the “first modern city”

Manchester, once the world's leader towards industry and mechanisation, is the heart of Northern England and living up to its name of the “first modern city”, it is very well connected by air – flying to around 225 destinations worldwide, ground – with train lines connecting to the whole of the U.K. as well as useful trams and buses in the greater metropolitan area, and water – being home of the world's first industrial canal.

The perfect first or last stop on a bigger itinerary, Manchester itself is a destination with a lot to offer, and while neighbouring cities for fun adventures include Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle, and York, all cities are surrounded by sprawling, alluring countryside ready to explore. 

Here are just some of the destinations in Northern England that may appeal to your clients:

Chorlton
Just a 25-minute ride from Manchester central is Chorlton, a neighbourhood known for its bohemian population. With plenty of nice restaurants and bars, great places to walk and green spaces including River Mersey, Ivy Green, Turn Moss, and Chorlton Water Park.

Chester
Chester is a picturesque walled city that is just an hour by train from Manchester. Encircled by a glorious 2-mile ring of Roman and medieval walls, it is the most complete walled city in Britain, and also said to be the best place to live in the U. K. Visitors shouldn’t miss the Rows, black-and-white, postcard-perfect 700 year-old-two-tiered covered shopping galleries, which are unique in England. And serious shoppers may like the Cheshire Oaks, the UK’s largest designer outlet village just 10 miles from the city centre. 

Hadrian's Wall
The Roman fortification is a walkable World Heritage Site which stretches 73 miles across the far north of England from the banks of the River Tyne near the North Sea to the Solway Firth on the Irish Sea. Along the way, walkers will discover fascinating border towns and villages, such as the picturesque market town of Brampton.

The Lake District National Park 
A place of superlatives, the Lake District National Park is the largest in the UK and boasts England’s highest mountain – Scafell Pike – and its largest lake – Lake Windermere. The area has long been a magnet for artists and writers. Beatrix Potter penned many of her famous works at Hill Top cottage, and William Wordsworth’s home, Dove Cottage, is now a quaint museum packed full of memorabilia.

The Yorkshire Dales 
With famous rolling green fields, divided by drystone walls, the Yorkshire Dales are quintessential English countryside. Hay meadows and green pastures full of wildflowers dip into glacial valleys and reach right up into the Pennine hills, where you'll be treated to some incredible views. Rolling hills, deep ravines, and waterfalls make this some of England's most rewarding landscape, and you'll find cosy little villages throughout.
