Summer in Manchester

by jaydigity

Myself and a couple of friends are thinking of working for the summer in Britain. There're a few cities we are considering going to and to help us narrow our (very long) list I was just wondering if anyone would like to offer some input as to whether or not Manchester would be a good choice for the summer.
We'd be looking for somewhere where
- Job availibility won't be a problem
- A decent nightlife for 20 year olds
- Cheap cost of living, or at least, not expensive
- There's a nice amount of touristy things to do.

Edinburgh, for example, is exactly the kind of place I'm looking for, but I've already visited it, so would like to try somewhere new

Really, REALLY appreciate feedback!

Re: Summer in Manchester

Hi, I live in Manchester, so I'll try to answer your questions...

Jobs - it depends on what kind of thing you want to do, but there are enough bars, restaurants, etc, that temporary work should be quite easy to find. I'm originally from Birmingham and I notice a LOT more young foreigners here so I think jobs must be easy to come by.

Nightlife - lots of clubs, pubs, bars, live music. Definitely enough to keep you from getting bored.

Cost of living - there are lots of students in Manchester (someone told me the city has the largest number in Europe) and areas that cater for them, so I guess there will be opportunities for cheap short-term lets when they go home for the summer. Outside the student areas, though, you'll probably find it hard to rent somewhere for just a few months and it will cost. Areas popular with young people are Withington (very studenty), Chorlton and Didsbury (the most desirable, can be expensive but great bars and restaurants).

The tram is pretty expensive, but buses are cheap depending on the operator. There are good cheap places to eat out - try curry in Rusholme (you can get better curry elsewhere, but the main street is a real spectacle) or Asian buffets in China Town, said to be the best Chinese food in Britain.

Touristy stuff - There are good museums like Imperial War North, Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester Museum (great Egyptology section, the Museum is a leader in this field) and lots of little art galleries. China Town is interesting too. South Manchester has some stately homes like Tatton Park and Dunham Massey. You can also see the old industrial areas. Outside the city, the Lake District is close by, as well as historical cities like Chester, York, etc. Blackpool would be make a good visit if you want to see the traditional Northern seaside town. North Wales is also very close, and beautiful. As well as the restaurants mentioned above, there are good British restaurants in Manchester and around. Yes, it does exist!

You mention Liverpool in another post - the two are close and you can live in one and go out for the night in the other easily, so bear that in mind.

Manchester is a young city and there's a lot of civic pride - it's a kind of unofficial second city (though being from Brum I wouldn't necessarily agree - Birmingham is the true Second City!). Let me know if you want more specific advice :)

Thanks very much for such a great reply Blue, really appreciate that! Manchester does sound great so I'm going to have to put a bit more research in.
Cheers again

If you're looking for accommodation, I know people who've stayed at the Y-Club - I think it's a YMCA or Youth Hostel in Castlefield which is in the City Centre. I also believe the Universities let out some of the Halls of Residence during the summer, so that may be worth looking into.

Travel Tips for Manchester

REMEMBER PAST TIME

by Andrew_Liu

Walking on a road from Salford to Manchester town center, I find a small museum-The National Gas Gallery. Before the door an old man, worn out dressing, holding a long pole, to light a street gas lamp.
People often like to remember past time. It’s an elegant culture. English bring this into full play.

Emotional Pygmies of Mancunia

by JamalMorelli

THIS DOES NOT AT ALL APPLY TO EVERY MANC:

Mancunian Emotional Pygmies 'strength of feeling' ranges are diminutive because in their early teens they do not experience the growth spurt normal in most other humans. This is an environmental adaptation, called insular dwarfism; smaller emotional ranges have evolved independently in non-human species in response to isolation on the small island. By natural selection, the environments in which the ancestors to Emotional Pygmies lived favored decreased sensitive responses over many generations, and today they dominate the gene pool. Most Mancunian Emotional Pygmy tribes have a small range of expresssions ranging from "Rubbish" (Bad) to "Not bad" (Very Good) The smallest ranges are to be found among the hordes of Tracksuits from the Picadilly Area in around the station; shaved head, sometimes of muscular body build, and have longish legs that sharply contrast with their miniscule expressive power. Their low physical mobility is evident from their rigid joints and budding-to-full beer bellies. They have highly developed posterior pelvic tilt (extreme Kyphosis), a trait that they share with neighboring Stockport Caucasian populations resulting in a boredom induced Scheuermann's Disease.

Old reminiscences from the past still lingering...

Nice buildings some are reduced to one bit...others being reconstructed for posterity. Great libraries, art exhibitions, Museums, don't know much about the night life...many vegetarian restaurants...

by iceblue

Haigh Hall is set in acres of woodland and provides an ideal setting for walkers and nature lovers. The hall itself can be hired for functions such as weddings and parties and the grounds host a number of the town's annual events, including Bank Holiday fairs, motoring exhibitions, demonstrations, and most famously a pop concert. The grounds are accessible from a number of entrances and facilities include a golf course, children's play area, handicraft stalls and demonstrations and a refreshments area. There is also ample car parking for visitors and a scenic train ride around part of the grounds.

Everything that's wrong with trendy shops

by monkeyfeesh about The Triangle

The Triangle inhabits the former Corn Exchange building. It used to be one of the main regional trade centres for agricultural produce, where farmers would come to sell all sorts of raw materials and foodstuffs like cheese and vegetables amusingly shaped like various anatomical regions. I'd have used the word "infests" rather than "inhabits" in the first sentence, but I wanted to sound a bit more rational than I actually am. Before the 1996 IRA bombing, which caused considerable damage to the building and particularly its glass-dome roof, the Corn Exchange had been home to a rundown-looking alternative market for some 15 years or so. It was full of all sorts of interesting shops selling all manner of goods, and was infinitely more characterful than the hideously expensive shopping centre that replaced it. While they preserved the exterior of the building, for me they totally ruined the interior, ousting every last ounce of humanity and character which inhabited the building for the benefit of the minority of people who can actually afford to shop there now. While it may be nice a place to window-shop if you like that sort of thing (I would generally rather dig my teeth out with a spoon, especially in a place as soul-crushingly bland and wallet-emptyingly expensive as this), if you want to buy anything you'll need to have a fair few quid in your pockets, which rules out me and most of the population. For reference, here are a few of the shops which inhabit the place:

Rodier, the French fashion label.
Space NK: a load of American beauty products.
Nailed: a "nail bar" that does manicures and has its own range of products.
CK Underwear: You can probably guess.

There are also some restaurants: Pizza Express is notable for being the most affordable one; Zinc Bar & Grill is more expensive.

Did I mention that I'm not a big fan of the place? You'll melt your credit card in here if you've more money than sense.
