Greater Manchester is one of England’s largest metropolitan areas, with more to see and do than could be covered in a single trip - the heart of the city holding cultural highlights like Castlefield, its birthplace, and the Museum of Science and Industry.
But outside of the centre, Greater Manchester has plenty to offer - Bolton is famous for its pasties, ciders and ales, which are often enjoyed in combination at Ye Olde Man and Scythe Inn. The town’s many traditional pubs are served by a local independent brewery, and offer a range of hard-to-find ales. You can also try and catch a football match between Bolton Wanderers and their local rivals in Bury!
Further south lies Stockport, where alongside another range of excellent pubs, the UK’s only hat museum can be found, as well as the imposing Stockport Viaduct - once the largest of its kind in the world. Adventuring further will lead you to Wigan, famed for Rugby League prowess and homemade meat pies - both should be sampled by savvy visitors.
