What do you look for when you’re planning a family holiday? You’ll need somewhere safe, with good accommodation options and plenty to do to keep the little ones occupied. Manchester offers all of that and so much more! 2020 Is the year of the staycation and there is no better time to explore the beauty and wonderful attractions that are right on our doorstep. If you’re planning a family staycation in Manchester, here are our top family-friendly attractions for your entire clan to enjoy.

Manchester United Football Club

Chances are, someone in your household is a football fan, and what better team to support than the most decorated UK football team of all time, Manchester United. On your family trip, make time for a tour of the world-famous Old Trafford for an afternoon of sporting greatness you won’t soon forget. Whether you’re a football fan or not, you’ll know some of the famous past and present faces and learn about the sporting history of the city while you’re there. The Old Trafford Experience, which is designed for families, offers access to the tour, the museum, and a meal in the Reds Cafe. Its an educational and exciting day our for the entire family.

Sea Life Manchester

For another exciting family day out, drive 20-minutes from our serviced apartments in Manchester to Sea Life Manchester. While there, you can get up close to thousands of creatures including sharks, jellyfish and the two resident green sea turtles, Ernie & Cammy. Move between the themed zones, learning about the fascinating creatures and the environment they live in. In the interactive rockpool experience you can touch a real-life starfish and cleaner shrimp and other creatures, then descend 600 metres below sea level and find the giant Japanese spider crab. With educational talks and events all year round, it’s an experience not to be missed on your family holiday in Manchester

Museum of Science and Industry 

If your little ones have an aversion to learning when school is out, take a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry and trick them into learning while having fun! The museum is packed with fascinating objects and amazing ideas that may change the world we live in today. Unlike a stereotypical museum setting, this place is hands-on, and staff don’t shy away from getting their hands dirty, teaching kids about how things work. Your entire family will be inspired by the wonder of science, enjoy live demonstrations of working machinery from the past, science shows and much more. If you’re planning a staycation in Manchester with your family, we highly recommend a visit.

The Great Outdoors

There is nothing better on a family holiday in Manchester than taking the kids to a park, letting them run around and tiring themselves out for a quiet night in. Take advantage of the natural social distance offered by Manchester’s Parks, big and small. There are parks with cafes, picnic areas, sandpits, playgrounds and so much more. Best of all, it’s completely free! The closest park to our serviced apartments in the heart of Manchester is St Michael's Flags and Angel Meadow Park but if you’re willing to travel a little further afield, Heaton Park and Wythenshawe Park and Gardens are bigger with better facilities.
