Manchester United

I surprised my husband on his 30th birthday with a trip to Manchester (He is a huge Manchester United fan)! We traveled the end of March (weather was chilly but tolerable) and stayed for three nights at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate. We had the best time exploring the city by foot, chatting with friendly locals and cheering on ManU at Old Trafford.

Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel

Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable. They also have a nice gym, indoor pool and hot tub. But what I loved the most about this hotel is the location. We were able to explore the whole city by foot! And the tram station to the stadium was a 2 min walk away. You also must check out Cloud 23, the trendy cocktail and champagne sky bar on the 23rd floor. You will get an amazing view of the city! (View in photo is from our hotel room not Cloud 23**)

Alberts Schloss

Albert's Schloss, Peter Street, Manchester, UK

I LOVED THIS PLACE! Naturally my favorite bar in Manchester ended up being the German beer hall. Definitely your traditional German food and Pilsner beer but the atmosphere was fantastic! We went on a Saturday around dinner time and the place was packed. We didn't even have a place to sit but they had amazing live band and everyone was dancing and singing along.

BrewDog

BrewDog Manchester, Peter Street, Manchester, UK

If your looking for really good craft beer this is your place! We passed by while exploring and decided to pop in for a drink. The Bartenders were very helpful and picked out a great selection based off of our taste.

The Trafford

Old Trafford, Sir Matt Busby Way, Stretford, Manchester, UK

If you are a football fan you have to find a way to get tickets to a Manchester United Game at Old Trafford Stadium. If not and you want to see what true European football fan culture all about I highly suggest you go check out the buzz around the stadium and pubs that are walking distance. The Trafford and The Bishop Blaize were two of the best! They are only open on match days and the rowdy fan chants will be stuck in your head for the rest of your trip.

Pho

Pho Manchester, Manchester, UK

I feel like anytime we wanted to eat we just walked into a random restaurant that looked appealing and lucky for us it always worked out. This place had delicious Pho and it was adorable inside.

Federal Cafe Bar

Federal Cafe Bar, Nicholas Croft, Manchester, UK

Small, busy and trendy cafe with good lattes.

The National Football Museum

National Football Museum, Todd Street, Manchester, UK

Pop in to check out the worlds biggest football museum! It’s free and they have bunch of cool memorabilia!

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home, Manchester, UK

Delicious and lively! A trendy restaurant where we had a fantastic breakfast. It had a very Williamsburg Brooklyn vibe.

Curry

Spice Lounge MCR, Shudehill, Manchester, UK

Do not leave without getting some Indian food! There has to be a restaurant on every street.
