If you’re visiting Manchester then there a range of places you should make sure to visit and hotels to stay in. A great place to stay would be the Pendulum Hotel, website: www.pendulumhotel.co.uk, which has an overall rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars, many people in their reviews have said the food was nice, that the staff were really kind and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and a fair price; many also said that they would definitely be coming back some time soon, especially those travelling for business. On display in the hallway there is a stunning Foucault pendulum, the pendulum is used to demonstrate the rotation of the earth. A great thing about the hotel is that it’s in the perfect location, as it’s not actually in the busy city centre but it’s just a 15 minute walk away and if the Manchester Oxford road train station is just 12 minutes away. In all of their rooms there are tea and coffee facilities as well as wifi, in the suites there is also sofas and work areas. The hotels amenities include a restaurant, bar and coffee shop.

A great thing to do on an evening if you feel like doing something which tests how well you can solve riddles then you should try out of the many escape rooms. There’s a wide selection available including detective, military and science themed ones. These require you to work in a team of at least 2, the best amount being 4. You have to find clues and work out riddles to unlock padlocks and open doors, so you can complete the game and escape; these tend to last an hour. If you like more intellectual, artsy hobbies then you could visit a museum or art gallery, to learn about the past of the world or view the work of some amazing artists. Depending on the time of year there are some great festivals which go on in Manchester, these are a great way to socialise and meet new people. You can listen to music from some of your favourite bands whilst having a few drinks and having fun with your friends. His is great if you aren’t from Manchester and don’t live there because you can view the different sights and attractions during the day and do something more fun and busy on a night. You may just want to go to a nice cafe for a hot drink, they have some great themed cafes too like ones off of TV shows including friends and also some vintage ones too.
