Plan your trip from Manchester Airport
Drive into Manchester, the UK’s northern capital of cool. There’s much to see, from the 2.8-hectare Museum of Science and Industry in the city’s 19th-century heartland to Old Trafford, home of the world's most famous club. Visitors here can tour the stands, the players' lounge and walk down the tunnel to the pitchside dugout.
Motor east for the mill towns and rocky beauty of the Peak District National Park or head north from Manchester for the Minsters and small-town charm of Yorkshire, Wordsworth country amidst the idyllic Lake District or the sparsely populated, picture perfect Northumberland coast.
Drive south to drop in on Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, before hitting the tearoom-filled villages of the Cotswolds and the ancient academy towns of Oxford. Further south, take in Bath, a spa destination since Celtic times, or cross into Wales for the second-hand bookshop capital of the world, Hay-on-Wye, or Swansea’s sublime, sandy neighbour Rhossili.
