Manchester United Museum & Trophy Room

The legendary Manchester United Football Club opened Britain's first purpose-built football museum in 1986. It charts the history of the team for over 100 years, from its birth in 1878 to the present day. Using photographs, sound and video, the museum excels at capturing the imagination and transporting it to important games and events which have marked United's eventful history. With over 1000 exhibits and displays where you can add your own match commentary or check out the FanZone, there is plenty to see. You can also join a guided tour of the stadium, which are held at regular times throughout the days the museum is open.

Manchester Art Gallery

Within its impressive neo-Grecian surroundings, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and decorative arts abound, including an internationally famous collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Landscape painters such as Stubbs, Gainsborough and Turner can also be found here. Other family-orientated facilities include a cafe, restaurant, gift shop, information center and children's gallery. Admission is free, and the museum is accessible until 9p on the first Wednesday of every month.

Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens

Named after a local politician named Fletcher Moss, this famous botanic garden is set atop a prominent hill in East Didsbury. Meandering footpaths are skirted by a smattering of identical-looking trees, while walks along these routes take visitors along the banks of the serene River Mersey. A refuge for native vegetation, the garden overflows with royal fern, walnut, and mulberry trees. It's quite easy to get lost amidst the natural beauty present here. Additional amenities include a small, old-fashioned tea shop that sells hot drinks, fantastic home-made cakes and ice cream, playing fields, well-kept tennis courts, and bowling greens.

The Whitworth Art Gallery

The Whitworth was originally founded in 1898 and the University of Manchester took over responsibility for it in 1958. Within its pleasant, open-plan Scandinavian-style interior you will find collections of watercolors, textiles and wallpapers by internationally renowned British artists as well as contemporary and historic prints, drawings and paintings. In addition to these, there are sculptures to be found in a mezzanine court, and temporary exhibitions held throughout the year. If you fancy a coffee or a light meal, there is also an excellent cafe-bistro on site offering home-cooked food during the day.
