    Car Hire Manchester

    Manchester Car HireVisit the cutting-edge city of Manchester. Now a sleek, hip city with a buzzing night scene and café culture, the skeleton of the city's heavily industrial pasts still remains, giving the city character and contemporary charm. While in Manchester, don't miss the city's renowned Museum of Science and Industry, which sits conveniently along the canal in Castlefield Urban Heritage Park. This location is deeply linked with the city's history, serving as the site of Britain's first modern canal as well as an ancient Roman fort and the world's very first railway station. Spend some time perusing the shops and cafes while you take in the surrounding scenery. Also of note is the Whitworth Art Gallery, run by the University of Manchester. Here you'll find an excellent and diverse collection of artwork with heavy representation from British artists. You can also explore the neighbourhoods of Manchester, including the fashionable Didsbury, China Town and the entertainment district of Salford.

    Manchester is located toward the north west of England, which provides an excellent starting point for travel around Scotland and England. Head to Liverpool to visit the Cavern Pub on Mathew Street, the spot where The Beatles were discovered by their former manager, Brian Epstein. While the current pub is not the original, it has been recreated and holds an excellent collection of Beatles memorabilia and tunes. You can also travel to the town of Buxton for a trip back in time at Little Moreton Hall. Tour this Tudor-era manor and gardens with costumed guides, then enjoy a traditional English tea in the manor's tea room. From Manchester, you can also reach the Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh to the north or head south to London, all four hours or less by car.
