No Time To Be Lazy In Manchester

Jul 19, 2008
Manchester is fast becoming the capital of Britain. Its city centre is on the same scale as London and it has a plethora of gorgeous shops including designer boutiques and bespoke little shops tucked away in nooks and crannies that hold promises of previously undiscovered gems of the type of creativity and artistic skills that Mancunians are so rightly proud of.

All this shopping is bound to make you hungry and Manchester is second to none when it comes to its choice of eateries. Any culinary dish your palette desires can be found somewhere in this great city and the atmosphere is beyond compare with the people of Manchester being open and welcome to all visitors and newcomers.

However, Manchester is about so much more than simply the city centre. If you have time on your hands and your visiting this place, then use car hire at Manchester airport and you will be set for a treat as you tour all of the surrounding areas sights, sounds, famous monuments and breathtaking scenery.

Given that it has an airport, flying is surely the easiest way to get yourself into the centre of Manchester. A relatively short flight from anywhere in the UK and you will find yourself at the true heart of the country. If you thought Manchester was all about coal and black pudding you are in for a pleasant surprise. Get yourself a comfy little ride from the car hire at Manchester Airport and treat yourself to a tour of all Manchester's world famous sporting establishments.

If eating black pudding is the means to how Manchester managed to produce such great sporting people as Fred Perry, Freddy Flintoff and Paula Radcliffe then maybe we should all eat up! You can, of course, use your car hire from Manchester Airport to drive up to Old Trafford and see the famous sporting ground for yourself or the city of Manchester Stadium where many events take place.

There is so much in Manchester for the budding sports person in you that you will have to use car hire at Manchester Airport as you'll have no chance of walking anywhere once you've had a go at the abseiling, diving and fishing. Given the surrounding countryside, there are plenty of chances for mountaineering in Manchester and if that's not your thing try your hand at bowls, boxing or golf.

There is a sports venue to cater for every possibility in Manchester, for the young or simply the young at heart. Martial arts, hockey or gymnastics are balanced out by the more refined past times of lacrosse, hot air ballooning or sailing. You can even go skiing on the indoor ski slope if the mood takes you or you need to brush up on your skills ready for your winter holiday.

If you want to test your own skills, there are fields and tracks where you can push yourself to the limit and follow in the footsteps of Olympic sportsmen and women who have trodden this ground themselves. A little light ten pin bowling makes a great evening out for a couple of even the whole family but if it's a lads trip you could always go to the wrestling.

Whatever you need in Manchester to whet your appetite for sports with get up and go, you will find it here. And that is exactly why you will need to hire a car to get you between venues.
