Live departures & arrivals

Experience this exciting cosmopolitan city, with its dramatic industrial heritage, and rich cultural diversity, offering something for everyone. Over the centuries, Manchester has reinvented itself from industrial heartland, to a centre for arts and high-end retail. 

With a full range of attractions from the Sea Life Centre, the interactive Science and Industry Museum, and the innovative Spy Mission Treasure Trail, there’s something exciting for the whole family. 

Vibrantly cultural, the range of theatre performances is eclectic and varied, including classic plays, alternative comedy and live music, and a full calendar of year-round festivals and events showcase a constant turnover of talent destined for the West End. Award-winning restaurants, art galleries and museums vie for your attention alongside the wide range of retail opportunities. 

Both Manchester Arndale and intu Trafford retail outlets rival London’s Oxford Street for designer stores, with the latter incorporating the IMAX cinema, and Legoland Discovery, but away from the bright lights and large high street names, there are architecturally attractive arcades full of quirky artisan boutiques, showcasing one-off pieces and high-end craftsmanship, perfect if you’re after a unique gift for yourself, or, if you must, others!  

So whether it’s a business trip, or a luxury night out with fine dining and a show, Manchester has something that’s just right. 

We have a range of ticket options available, designed to save you both money and hassle. By downloading our easily accessible app, you can find the best deals and our lowest available fares.
