Visiting Manchester around 24 November?

by Gillybob

If you are visiting Manchester at the end of November, you may be interested in this VT meeting to enjoy the delights of the Manchester Christmas Markets!

http://meetings.virtualtourist.com/meeting-4061-1-0-308843-Manchester---meeting.html

Come along and catch up with your fellow VT-ers, be a meeting virgin and find out what they're all about (they're great fun) or just come along for the stroll through the Markets.

We'd love to see you there!

Re: Visiting Manchester around 24 November?

Sounds like a good idea - does that also mean we get to have a glass of German Hot Gluwein - i had a glass of this last year - and its the best thing i've ever had to warm me up inside on a very cold day. Much better also than the English Mulled Wines I've had.
I would be interested to know if they ever have an outdoor ice skating rink somehere in Manchester for Christmas - i did not see one last year -but this year it seems doubtful with everyone going on about health and safety all the time and common sense going out the window. There was an Ice skating rink when i went Nice in France - it was lovely - that - and Croissants with Hot Chocolate sauce.

Oh yes, lots of Gluhwein stalls and hot chocolate stalls too (and you can get it with a little something extra like Bailey's). And, yes, there will be an ice rink (http://www.manchester.gov.uk/site/scripts/news_article.php?newsID=3096) in the same location as last year's - Picadilly Gardens - but, apparently, much bigger. In fact, it looks like they were starting work on it this morning and it will go across the full width of the fountain area there, blocking the through access to the bus station.

Lots and lots of things planned for around Manchester leading up to the festive period itself!

Travel Tips for Manchester

Castlefields

by sandysmith

The area around Castlefields is a pleasant place to wander around the canals. Many buildings here have been or are being converted into swish apartments and with the restaurants around here makes for a much improved area of Manchester. Nice spot for a few reflections too :-)

Like most places in a country...

by hayward68

Like most places in a country which enjoys its fair share of rain (though I didn't see much), when the sun shines you will find people out in the squares enjoying the sunshine. One particular square where I viewed and participated in this was St Ann's Square, a lovely pedestrian area which has been reconstructed after suffering damage from an IRA bomb in 1996. The city took the initiative to redesign this part of the city and its just a lovely area. Oh, and the EasyInternet is right there as well ;-)

Go and explore Fletcher Moss

by mikeajtaylor

Close to Didsbury Village is an area know as Fletcher Moss! There you'll find the Old Parsonage Garden which is built around the house in which Fletcher Moss, a local historian lived last century! It's situated close to the Old Cock Inn! There is also a magnificent rock garden and wildflower meadow! As I write this in July the old English roses are a treat to see and above all smell!! The aroma seems to linger for the rest of the day!! There is a lovely cafe selling home made cakes and tea! Just the job after a stroll around the extensive woods and meadows! It's amazing to think that you are so close to the centre of Manchester and yet in such a green and unspoilt area.

The Roman era in Britain...

by Nobbe

The Roman era in Britain lasted for four centuries, with continuous Roman occupation from AD 43 to 410. Hundreds of archaeological sites representing mixtures of Roman and native British cultures are known in England, Wales, and Scotland, ranging from large forts and towns to individual villas and small farms. At Castlefield near Manchester City Centre you can find the remainings of the old Roman Fortress. At its height, the fort and the spreading civilian settlement around it probably amounted to about 2000 people. The fort was abandoned in 411 AD, marking the complete withdrawal of Roman troops from Britain, and the township (the vicus) probably fell gradually into disuse. Over time the purpose of the ruined fortress was lost in obscurity, and 'the castle in the field' suffered as did most other ruins, as a useful place for locals to acquire (steal) ready dressed stones to repair their houses and barns.

Travel Clothing Store

by janiebaxter about Rohan

Rohan Travel Clothing is well known and the brand has been available by mail order catalogue and the web for a few years. Rohan are well known for their convertible trousers that can be changed into shorts by zipping the legs off (and back on again!) and the range of travel clothing that is easy to wash and fast drying. Not much point in writing much about the clothes as they are well known and details are on the website. Suffice to say there is now a store in Manchester City Centre, in case you lose your convertibles or some scally steals them - they can be replaced. Average prices - about £50 for trousers.
