    Our photo of the day: Apples on sale at Bury Market near Manchester

    Jul142011

    While I was in Manchester, I made the short trip out to the ‘World Famous Bury Market’. Hop on the tram in the city centre and you’ll be out there in no time at all. A smorgasbord of locally-sourced treats awaits you there, from fruits like the shiny apples you can see here to creamy cheeses, fresh seafood and more. Definitely one for the ‘foodies’ out there.

    A great way to keep the costs down on your trip is to download our free Manchester pocket guide. It’s filled with great tips on how to save money by visiting the city’s free museums including the Manchester Museum and the Manchester Art Gallery.

    Some of the city’s top shopping spots are also covered in this guide. If you’re a shopaholic, you’ll have a fantastic time in Manchester as it’s filled with fab shopping streets, big malls and even some great alternative options. My favourite place to shop in Manchester is Affleck’s on Church Street in the undeniably cool Northern Quarter. Stroll through the different levels and you’ll find a great selection of independent traders selling everything from bright t-shirts to army surplus gear, plus plenty more. If you’re visiting Manchester, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

    Don’t forget, if you are heading to this city in the north of England, we’ve got a great selection of hostels in Manchester for you to check out.
