Manchester also has dining districts, such as Hardman Square and Canal Street, where international cuisine is found in abundance: Thai, Chinese, Indian, American, Mediterranean, South American, and more. The Central Retail District harbors street vendors in every nook and cranny as well as delicious local food. Spinningfields is an area where some of Manchester's biggest events take place.

Hotels to fit every budget are scattered across the city in the various cultural areas, and while travel through the city is relatively simple, it's always fun to stay in a hotel situated near a few things that interest you. Also keep in mind that you will most likely be traveling by “tube” or train, difficult when your arms are full of packages. Whether planned or unexpected, it's something to consider when you are on foot and taking trains to and from your hotel. Not all city blocks are square, and you can't always go around the block to get where you started.

Manchester is filled with beautiful hotels at reasonable prices in close proximity to travel and attractions. Think ahead to what shopping you might do as you study the map and plan your budget and hotel. There are many hotel choices in a city as large as Manchester, so don't short-change yourself by not doing your homework. Keep in mind that when the competition is stiff, the quality often improves.

Sweater Seasons in Manchester, England

Manchester, England has a lot to offer the adventurous traveler, but smart travelers should be prepared for cooler weather. During the summer months of June, July, and August, the highest temperatures hover around 68 degrees F, quickly dropping to the 48-to-63-degree range for fall. Winter months remain temperate, however, and for the most part stay in the forties, which is nice for those who don't like freezing temperatures. Also expect rain, since there is an average of twenty days of rain every month of the year. Knowing this fact offers visitors an easy solution: bring a trench coat, sweater, umbrella and shoes that can withstand the damp. Manchester has a lot to offer, so don't let the weather stop you!

If you're feeling weather shy, don't travel in the wettest month, October, and do travel in December, when there is the most sunshine. Watch out for holiday travel, though. During Christmas season, hotels fill up fast! In February, Manchester hosts a large festival celebrating the Chinese New Year. The parades and many activities are outside, so plan to stay warm and dry when you come to this event.
