Car in Manchester is necessary if you are not staying in the city. In the city, there is definitely sufficient public transportation and a lot within walking distance. If you are staying outside of the city or need to go somewhere outside of the city, having a car definitely makes it more convenient. Manchester overall is a lovely city with lots of restaurants and pubs. It is an easy walking city, has oldest Chinatown, Media City area is fun to visit and see a show at Lowery.
