Manchester Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

A former industrial hotspot, Manchester has reinvented itself as a modern metropolis. As known for its distinct neighborhoods as it is for great museums, the city offers plenty for any curious traveler. Manchester is also near a surprising amount of beautiful natural areas that can be easily accessed with a car. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around this great northern city:

  • Curry Mile. While not strictly living up to its name -— it is only about half a mile (or 800 m) long and has a lot more than just curry — visiting this stretch of the Wilmslow Road in the central Rusholme area can be one of the most interesting gastronomic adventures in all of Britain. Mainly known for offering the whole diversity of the food from the Indian subcontinent, the area has also become a hotspot of culinary delights from the Middle East. Manchester is home to one of the largest Chinatowns in Europe, and the city is also a dream destination for all East Asian food lovers.
  • Imperial War Museum North. Opened in the 2000s and located in one of the most futuristic buildings of the city, the IWM North explores not just the conflicts that the United Kingdom has been involved in during the last couple of centuries but the wider societal and psychological consequences of these wars. Interactive and inventive, the museum has an impressive archive of written, artistic, audial, visual, and other sources arranged in a number of interesting exhibitions. Visit the museum’s website to learn more. The IVM North is in the Trafford area of Greater Manchester, about a 20-minute drive southwest of the city center.
  • Lake District. A large nature area and a national park, the greenery of the Lake District holds a special place in the public imagination of British society. Consequently, the area can be quite busy, especially during the holiday season, but that shouldn’t stop you from making the 80-minute drive north. Characterized by scenic villages, equally impressive lakes, and a myriad of hiking routes, the area is a joy to explore.

Nearest gas station

The best station at which to fill up before returning a rental car is a Shell station located on Styal Road. If coming from the M56, it requires a circle of a couple of miles, but there is no station located directly on the way to the airport. The station is more convenient if coming from the Manchester Airport Eastern Link on the Winslow-Handforth Bypass.

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.
