Manchester game's buses

by Kiskillas

I'm from Spain and I would like go to see a match of MU and I would like to know what buses there are to travel from London to Manchester. How much money? How long is the trip? Thank you

Ola,
You can take the train, bus or fly from London to Manchester. The bus takes 4.5hours and is definitely the cheapest but slowest option, For time tables and prices here is the website http://www.nationalexpress.com

Just remember that tickets for MU are very hard to get - don't go along to the ground and expect to get in.

Re: Manchester game's buses

by Gillybob

The cheapest bus form London to Manchester is MegaBus. www.megabus.com/uk/

Buses for today's travel were £10 a seat but for a Saturday in May tickets were available from £1.00 to £5.00.

As others have noted, tickets for MU games are hard to come by and should be sourced in advance if your intention is to come up for the game alone.

Travel Tips for Manchester

City of Manchester Stadium

by Ben-UK

The XV11th Commonwealth Games were held at the then new City of Manchester Stadium (Eastlands) in 2002. After the highly successful games the 48,500 capacity stadium became the new home to Manchester City Football Club who had occupied their old Maine Road ground since 1923.

The area is known as Sportcity as the facilities in this huge development include the National Squash Centre, the 6,000 capacity Regional Athletics Arena, the Indoor Tennis Centre and the National Cycling Centre at the Velodrome.

The futuristic sculpture outside the stadium is called 'B of the Bang' -- designed by Thomas Heatherwick, it's 50 metres high and made from 180 steel spikes -- it's the largest free-standing sculpture in the UK. It's name comes from a quote from athlete Linford Christie who said that at the start of a race he wanted to start not at hearing the bang of the starting pistol, but at the 'B of the bang'

Main stadium website: http://www.stadiumguide.com/cityofmanchester.htm

It's about a 10 minute bus ride from Piccadilly -- many buses go that route, including the 216, 217 and 230 -- if going by car, find the A662 east of the city and there are signs for Sportcity.

English Hospitality

by JamalMorelli

I wandered around the simple brick-based houses in the neighborhoods of Manchester and found the natives, called 'English people', to be very hospitable.* Almost everywhere I went someone was saying hello and or inviting me to a traditional plate of battered fried fish and fried potato slices with their family and friends. A naturally warm and talkative people, they asked me about Morocco: "But are they considerate of the stranger and hospitable like us, these... Moroccans? " I say and have said, "They are. Yes. Even they, those North African Moroccans, are somewhat known (as are well known the English) for their exceeding warmth, generosity and convivial natures."

At times, the 'English' could not believe there were others like them! - A place where household doors opened to absolute strangers without concern of exploitation or judgement when I told them. "I would love to see this Morocco!" I said, "You only need look inside your own heart! All the brilliant cooking and food sharing, innate sense of rhythm and musical lives, over-the-top kindness to strangers, gregariousness in the streets - these all are qualities Brits prize! So, of course, you have Morocco right here!"

Historical bits.......

by leics

There are some less obvious historical bits of architecture remaining in the city centre, if you keep your eyes open.

Try to look up more than at the modern shop frontages.

Just occasionally, you will get a glimpse of the grimy, cramped Victorian powerhouse that Manchester once was.......

Jewish Museum

by Chamsa

Location: 190 Cheetham Hill Road (about 10 minutes walk from Victoria Station), Manchester M8 8 LW; Open: Mo-Thu 10:30-4, Su 10:30-5
It's really amazing! I spent there two hours and learnt a lot about the Jewish community in Manchester. A nice lady explained me the former Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, built in 1874 and used for worship until 1982. In the museum you'll find pictures of the 19th and early 20th century as well as interviews of senior community members.

The Triangle

by Ben-UK

Situated in the old Corn Exchange Building which was badly damaged in the 1996 IRA bombing, the Triangle has emerged as fashionable shopping venue, home to the likes of Ted Baker, Henri Lloyd, adidas, Jeffery Rogers.

The area is being developed as the Millenium Quarter with the nearby Urbis museum and the Printworks a very popular venue for shops, restaurants, bars, nightclub.

Location: Exchange Square -- from Piccadilly, go down Market Street and turn right at Marks & Spencer -- Exchange Square is just along there.
