1. Junkyard Golf
Yup, it’s a pretty self-explanatory title. It’s a mini golf course made out of stuff found in junkyards… and it’s so FUN.
There are a range of different courses; including Bozo, which has a dark and twisted circus vibe, Pablo, a building site-meets-jungle meets-ocean themed vibe, and Gary, a true scrapyard course.
It costs about £8 per person, with Students and emergency service workers entitled to 50% off on Mondays and Tuesdays.
2. Albert’s Schloss
A bar inspired by Bavaria (where they consume the most beer on the planet) aaaaaannd Bohemia (where they make the best beer on the planet) Albert’s Schloss is far from a one trick pony – they have an incredible list of cocktails, including an Apple Strudel and Black Forest Bramble – as well as a hearty offering of house-made Schnapps, an in-house bakery and themed live music nights every night of the week.
Heaven on Earth.
3. Richmond Tea Rooms
This is a lovely little spot just off Canal Street where you’ll find some of the most sought-after afternoon tea in Manchester.
Alice In Wonderland inspired and Tim Burton-esque, the tearoom boasts an intricate, quirky decor and the staff are passionate about everyone having a great time. The more you look around you, the more you’ll notice, and all the little features are worthy of appreciation.
Why not have a peek at their afternoon tea menu here?
4. Whitworth Art Gallery
Once you’ve soaked up all the culture that The Whitworth has to offer, take a step outside to Whitworth park – a haven of green peace and quiet amongst the concrete jungle of Manchester.
5. The Museum Of Science And Industry
Packed full of informative exhibits the museum also features many interactive attractions such as the “Experiment!” exhibition where guests can “stare into the mirror of infinity, create a tornado, and watch your own skeleton ride a bicycle!”
Opening Hours 10am to 5pm every day except 24 to 26 December and 1 January.
6. Go Vegan (temporarily)
Ok ok, so we’re not suggesting indefinitely, but Manchester’s starting to catch up to London in terms of its veggie and vegan offering and the choices are gorgeous.
The now-famous Picudas burger from the Northern Quarter’s West Corner is the one to try if you’re fancying a guilt-free yet satisfying lunch, Bundobust Vegetarian Indian Street Food is one of our favourite places to go by Piccadilly and V Revs Vegan Diner on Edge Street serves to remind us that veganism ain’t always so clean after all 😉
7. Sip cocktails at Manchester House
Need any more convincing?
8. Party til late at the Liar’s Club
With a huge selection of tropical cocktails, a real sand beach bar and bangin’ tunes to boot, it’s a complete no-brainer.
Tiki as fuck.
