From picnics in lush parks like Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden to self-guided walking tours of the city's street art and vibrant neighbourhoods, there's no shortage of budget-friendly activities in this bustling city. And if you're looking for something a little more active, why not try a dance lesson, or rent a tandem bike and take a scenic ride through Heaton Park? You'll not only get some exercise, but you'll also have the opportunity to bond and create lasting memories.

For a truly unique experience, explore the city's rich history and cultural heritage by visiting museums and galleries, such as the People's History Museum or The Whitworth Art Gallery, unfortunately, Manchester Museum will reopen on the 18th of February. You'll be amazed at how much there is to discover, and best of all, many of these attractions are free to visit! Take a stroll through the galleries and exhibitions hand in hand, admiring the works of art and stopping for a coffee or tea along the way.
