Your group stay in Manchester
A city of rock and football, home of Oasis, Joy Division and the Smiths or Georges Best and Eric Cantona, Manchester is the symbol of the great working class cities of the North of England, which have managed to rebuild themselves and become, today, very popular destinations.

Before you arrive in Manchester, forget all your preconceived ideas about the big working class cities of northern England. Of course, Manchester remains, like Birmingham or Liverpool, marked by the 19th century with its landscapes of red brick factories and chimneys. But the city has radically changed its face since the 2000s. Two districts symbolize this evolution. Castlefield, once an industrial site, has become a pleasant place to stroll with canals whose banks have been built and Northern Quarter whose brick walls are covered with street art and where Manchester's alternative culture has settled. The architectural enthusiasts of your group will be delighted by their visit to Manchester with a strong contrast between the industrial wasteland areas, which will delight photographers, and the neo-Gothic style of some of its buildings. Manchester is also a pilgrimage city for football and rock enthusiasts. The city has indeed seen the birth of some of the biggest English rock bands and still has a very dynamic music scene. It is also home to two major football clubs, including the legendary Manchester United, which dominated English football for two decades. A visit to the Old Trafford Stadium, the "Théâtre des Rêves" is the perfect place for your group.
