Hi!
A friend (17) and I (18) will visit Manchester in 2 weeks. We were wondering if there is a possibility to get into a club / discoqtheque in Manchester. Is every discotheque strict, or is there a possibility that my friend can walk through? And if so, which club?

memorise a date of birth which makes u both 19 ( always better to make more convincing then saying 18 ) - if they ask u for ID just put on very broken English 'sowwy passport in hostel, I'm 19' - may work, may not - but always worth a try... some clubs are a lot less bothered than others :) good luck

bring a form of ID with you wherever you go as you wont get in any clubs without it. passport or European driving licence will be acceptable only

I also like history and art - so if there are some historic places or museums i shouldn't miss, let me know

looking forward to your suggestions

Hi,

there are several museums and galleries, all worth to be checked out:
Witworth Art Gallery
Manchester Museum
Crafts & Design Center

If you want to go on a hike, the Peak District is really close by and very nice.
Contact me, if you need a tour guide.

Hi,

If you like rock music I would check out Salisbury (Oxford Road), Rebelion (Deansgate) and maybe Grand Central (Oxford Road). In the Northern Quarter, The Castle & Gullivers - both on Oldham Street, are also great music orientated pubs.

Probably the easiest area for a walk is the Peak District; get a train from Piccadilly out to Edale, and look up some walks that go up onto Kinder Scout.

Hth,

Ian.

Cheapest way would probably be to get the bus from the airport to the city centre, then take a megabus (http://uk.megabus.com/) to Birmingham.. The bus to the city should be about £3.50 I think and the megabus needs to be booked in advance but can be had for as little as £1

Hi david....

Thanks alot for the information...
May i know the bus website from airport to city centre? Should i book in advance like megabus or just go show?

Sorry asking another question.

John W , Manchester, GBR, about 2 months ago

David gives some good advice but personally for that journey I'd recommend getting the train as theres a station at Selly Oak. Take a train from the airport to Crewe (no need to go then into Mcr city centre), then change to Birmingham New Street, then change again for a short journey to Selly Oak. Looking at the nationalrail website if you book in advance for two weeks time, prices are from £13. It really depends when you are arriving as turning up without train reservation can be a lot more expensive. Bus would be cheaper but a reserved train would be a lot more convenient for not much more money.

Martijn Vermaat, Zoetermeer, NLD, about 2 months ago

Soon I am going to visit a friend who lives in Ireland and I’m currently planning the trip. This time I want to try something new and instead of taking the plane I’m going by car. As this is a quite long trip I want to stop in a couple of places in England and visit the city while I’m there. Today I found out that in may there is a CS invasion in May and that sounds amazing. This means I will be staying in Manchester for a couple of nights and I need to stay somewhere.

My plan is to find a nice hotel. As you may know there are quite a lot of hotels in Manchester and I’m looking for some advice on this. Can you help me? I’m prepared to pay like 100 euros per night (like 75 pounds) and preferably in the city center (cheaper is better ofcource). Another problem that will arise is finding a good place to park my car. Usually in bigger cities it’s a good plan to park on the outskirts and take public transport to wherever I need to go, because this is a lot cheaper if you have to park for a couple of days. How is that in Manchester?

Thanks in advance for all your advice!

Antoinette Fourie , Manchester, GBR, about 2 months ago

Hey! Glad that you are planning to join the invasion. It is going to be a lot of fun! Is there a reason why you want to stay in a hotel? As it is a bunch of couchsurfing events, it might be fun staying with some. Otherwise i would recommend the backpackers (think its called madhatters) in the city centre. There is a number of carparks in the city centre, so don't think you need to park far out. The one I walked past this morning had an early bird special for 4.10 for 12 hours. You might be able to get a good weekend rate as well.

Shazia Mughal , Manchester, GBR, about 2 months ago

Hey Martijn :)
If you still want to stay in a hotel, booking.com is a pretty good website - you can see a wide range of what is available - different prices, check locations on the map, read reviews, search for only those with parking, etc.

The Hatter hostel on newton street is very nice,have stayed there many times,the price comes with a free breakfast,
