Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England with a rich industrial heritage. The Castlefield conservation area’s 18th-century canal system recalls the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, which continues to this day with billion pound clothing company boohoo. The revitalised Salford Quays dockyards now house the BBC and Media City. Our trips to Manchester have been created to make it easy, affordable and a great way to dip your toe into business travel experiences.
