Manchester, United Kingdom

Guitars, bands and live music is what this northern English city is famous for – but it’s much more than good tunes and rock and roll. Catch avant garde exhibitions at the Manchester Art Gallery, hit the club scene at Warehouse Project, comb through some classic vinyl at a vintage music store, or get right into one of the many festivals the city hosts throughout the year. Experience the highs of sporting culture at the homes of two world-famous football teams (Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, and Etihad Stadium, home to rival home team Manchester City) and the National Football Museum, before getting acquainted with TV soap opera Coronation Street on a set tour and enjoying some artisanal food and drink at the markets.
