Where can I drive to near Manchester?

Liverpool: Around an hour’s drive from Manchester is Liverpool — one of the North West of England’s most vibrant cities. Famous for being the home of The Beatles, Liverpool has regenerated into a centre for culture, sport and shopping. Don’t miss the Maritime Museum, Anfield (Liverpool Football Club’s stadium) and the Liverpool One shopping centre.

Southport: Just over an hour away, Southport is a traditional Victorian seaside town with a pier, sweeping sand dunes, golf courses and great shopping. At the heart of the town is Lord Street, a wide boulevard famous for its shopping, formal gardens and restaurants. If you love beer, you are in luck — Southport is becoming known for brewing award-winning beer, as well as its real ale pubs such as Tap and Bottles, the Guest House and The Inn Beer Shop. However, don’t drink and drive.

Lake District: Immortalised by Wordsworth and frequented by Beatrix Potter, the Lake District has inspired writers and artists for hundreds of years. The hills, lakes and fells are popular with walkers and mountain bikers, and the national park is home to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike. The Lake District is not all about outdoor pursuits — there are a number of historic buildings to visit, such as Rydal Mount and Gardens (the former home of poet William Wordsworth).
