Accommodation

by Glen30

Hello,

I am flying to Manchester early next year to watch the LIVE Stictly Come Dancing.

http://www.strictlycomedancinglive.co.uk/default.asp?contentID=644

The show will take place at the "Manchester Evening News Arena". Could someone recommend some B&Bs which are within walking distance from this Arena. I don't have to worry much about transport after the show.

Thanks
Glen

There are no B&Bs within Manchester city centre. What is your budget? I'll see what I can come up with from that.

Re: Accommodation

maybe about 60 pounds for a night

Get in touch with these

Stay Inn
Premier Inn
Travelodge

They all have hotels within 10-minute walk of the Arena and offer budget rooms in your price range.

Manchester will be the home of Strictly Come Dancing when the BBC finishes its new Salford Quays recording studios.

I'm not sure when that will be, exactly, but you can check what tickets are available for BBC shows by clicking this link

There's Picadilly Gardens Hotel - friends stayed there last year for my Christmas Markets VT Meet and paid around £40 per night - its not great but they didn't have any complaints and I think that price included breakfast.

Travel Tips for Manchester

Old Trafford

by soccergrrl

See Old Trafford, home of Manchester United Football Club! The team are legendary, and the stadium is magnificent. You can tour the stadium and visit the museum, even if you can't get tickets to a match. Watching a game at the Theatre of Dreams.

Don't look for trash cans

by gal_flower

Well I travelled from Manchester to London and back with few stops
but I couldn't find almost anywhere a trashcan.
I come from Bulgaria and I'm used to throw my trash in the trashcans
on the street but in UK that's not the case.

I suppose there they are considered dangerous and they just don't use it.

Anyway you have 2 choices : either throw your stuff on the street (don't worry
they'll be cleaned in a while) or keep your stuff in your pockets (my choice )

Sports Cafe

by surfluvr641

The Sports Cafe is definitely a place to watch American as well as European sports. We were able to catch the baseball playoff games and american football, as well as some Manchester United matches. Pretty good food as well.

Bury

by Toyin

This is George and Dragon. The place was not openedas the time I took the picture, but while waiting for my Bus which took ages to come, because it was a Sunday; the place was opened, only when a couple physically banged on the door. And that seemed to be the signal for business to began. Its an old joint, if you know what I mean.

Cheap cheap cheap

by susiederkins about Primark

Primark is impossible to miss. It's the most prominent shop in Piccadilly Gardens, and has a massive sign proclaiming its presence on the side of the building.

A weekday trip into this shop will reveal the Mancunian masses. Don't even bother trying to shop here on the weekends unless you like a challenge. Here is where you'll see a lot of scallies buying too-small clothing and speaking in broad accents. You'll also see a cross section of many other Manchester residents and tourists alike, all drawn by the sheer value of the goods here. There is a very good reason it's so packed, and why you'll see a plethora of Primark bags while wandering around town. The quality of the clothes is decent (for women, men and children), and the prices are unbelievable. I recently picked up a pair of sporty capri trousers for £3.50, and a pair of trainers for £5. Jackets are typically about a tenner.

Ground floor: Women's wear and Men's wear
Top floor: Ladies' lingerie, shoes, Children's / Babies' wear, Homewares.

The basement is home to TK Maxx, where you will find brand name clothing, shoes, accessories and housewares at discount prices. Worth a browse. Depends on how much you buy. Approx.:
Trousers: £3.50 - £10.00
Tops: £2.00 - £8.00
Shoes: £3.00 - £20.00 (boots)
Hair accessories: £1.00 - £3.00
Sunglasses: £2.00 - £3.00 (note: the quality varies but the pair I bought pass for a much more expensive pair)
