Manchester football clubs and stadiums

When asked what they know about Manchester most people mention football or music. The city is home to two of the world's biggest football clubs, Manchester United and Manchester City, which divide this great city into red and blue.

Many visitors drive to Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, for a tour of the stadium and museum and to learn more about the history of one of the most successful football clubs in the world.  Then, just a short distance across the city, you will find the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester United's fiercest rivals, Manchester City. Stadium tours are also available, and the opportunity should not be missed, regardless of which team you support.

Manchester and its music

Manchester established itself on the world map as a hotbed of popular music with the success of bands like Oasis, Joy Division and the Stone Roses; but there is more to it than that. With a multitude of venues including Manchester Arena (one of the largest in Europe), and pubs and clubs all offering live music experiences, you’re spoilt for choice.

Manchester’s history

Manchester has much more than music and football to attract the millions of visitors it welcomes every year. The city and surrounding area has a rich history spanning hundreds of years.

The Industrial Revolution saw Manchester's expansion from a small market town to a city, due to its place as a centre of the cotton and yarn industry.  Remains of this past can be seen throughout the city and surrounding areas.

Use your rental car to drive to the Stockport Air Raid Shelters and experience what it was like for the thousands of people cramped in there during the Blitz, or visit the Imperial War Museum, one of the finest museums in the country.

Not far outside the city you will find beautiful countryside, enticing you to take long leisurely drives. Explore the neighbouring towns and villages and take in the lush green fields and rolling hills of the Peak District National Park.
