Old Trafford, nicknamed "Theater of Dreams," is a famous football (soccer) ground located in Greater Manchester. Opened in 1910, it is home to the celebrated Manchester United Football Club. It has been the setting for prestigious tournaments like the FIFA World Cup, Euro 96 and the 2003 UEFA Champions League Final. The venue was chosen to host nine football matches for the 2012 London Olympic Games. Apart from football, games like shinty, baseball and cricket have also been played here. Legendary artists like Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen have hosted their concerts at Old Trafford. The space is also rented out for private events and functions like weddings and Christmas parties. Tourists can be a part of the regular stadium tours arranged here.

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.

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.

Band on the Wall

Situated out beyond the Northern Quarter, this is a 240-capacity venue with a character and niche of its own. The interior is dark and atmospheric with burgundy-painted fittings and a fantastic little balcony offering an eagle-eye view of the stage. Its strength lies in the diversity of the live music it puts on. There is a continual program of non-mainstream specialist music including jazz, reggae, dub, African, folk and Latin, attracting a multicultural audience of all ages. As a club venue at weekends, it hosts a selection of genuinely inventive club nights that attract an eclectic crowd.

Imperial War Museum North

The Imperial War Museum North is one of the branches of the Imperial War Museum in the northern part of England. Housed inside a magnificent structure which was designed by Daniel Libeskind, it was opened to the public in July 2002. Most of the permanent collection of the museum can be found in the first-floor gallery, which comprises artifacts such as the Russian T-34 tank, a World War II 13-pounder field gun, and the Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier jet among others. The walls of the museum are used as screens for several slide projectors placed inside the museum to showcase photographs and audio-visual presentations related to war. Another section inside the same complex hosts temporary exhibits. With droves of visitors flocking here every year, the museum is among the most visited in England.
