Budget breaks in Spring

Enjoying yourself doesn't have to burn a hole in your pocket. Manchester has plenty of quality things to do that will hardly cost you a penny.

Manchester can easily be enjoyed on a budget. A night at Hatters Hostel in the eclectic Northern Quarter will set you up for a fantastic inexpensive break with friends or family.


During the day explore one of the country's finest art museums, Manchester Art Gallery, which houses a diverse collection and offers free entry.


Feeling inspired? Why not take a short walk to the mesmerising gothic building that is The John Ryland's Library and take peek at its world famous literature collection. However, don't be surprised if there's a chill in the air as the oldest part of the library is said to be haunted.
