I liked Manchester, a little bit of old and a little bit of new mixed. I stayed near the Manchester Arndale, which is a mall in center of town.
Manchester is a great city to visit. There is some fantastic shopping and the nightlife scene is second to none, especially for LGBT travelers. Check out the Gothic city hall and the huge Arndale Centre. A great place to take the kids is the museum of science and industry.
