A 15-minute train ride or 25-minute car ride from Waterside and you will find yourself in Manchester’s vibrant city centre.

One of Britain’s largest and most diverse urban spaces, built upon a sturdy foundation of innovation and determination, Manchester was formerly recognised as a global centre for the cotton trade, and has continued to expand and grow ever since to become one of the most successful creative business hubs of the UK.

Fringed by the Cheshire Plain and the Pennines, which are commonly referred to as the backbone of England, Manchester is a great place to stay if you hoping to enjoy a city break with access to the beautiful countryside.
