3. Visit to somewhere new:

It is so easy to travel to somewhere new from Manchester using local transport. You can get to places including Liverpool, Chester and even the Peak District. If you want to stay a bit closer to home, you can take a trip on the Metrolink where you go to places such as Altrincham that has amazing food markets.

4. Get out in nature:

Manchester is one of the most amazing cities for access to nature. We have Peel Park right on our doorstep on our Peel Park Campus, an amazing spot for a picnic with friends or to go for a walk. Parts of the Peak District, such as Glossop and New Mills, are half an hour away on the train from Manchester; it’s a perfect escape for nature lovers.

Have an amazing Easter Break!
