What do computer science, Rolls-Royce and the band Oasis have in common? They’re all from Manchester, England! Yes, the Mancs have contributed much to modern society—and not just the magic that is the song “Wonderwall”.
This city has museums, history and heaps of English charm, all rolled up into a totally manageable size (lookin’ at you, London). Book one of Wotif’s awesome Manchester car hire deals, and you’ll really be able to see it all.
Hit up Manchester Cathedral for photo ops, the Museum of Science and Industry for history, and Old Trafford for some rowdy, beer-filled shouting at a football match. When you need some quiet time, just take your Manchester car rental to Heaton Park, 7km north of downtown. Visit classic English gardens, learn what a “dower house” is and join—or just watch—a friendly game of rugby.
What’s more British than that? Drinking tea in a famous author’s Victorian mansion, for one. Go back to a time of tea cakes and rose gardens at Elizabeth Gaskell's House, just 2.5km from the city centre. Prefer your villas to have royal residents? Check out Wotif’s London hotels and make the hour flight south.
Did you catch the quaint countryside bug back at Elizabeth Gaskell's House? We’ve got the cure. Hop in your car hire in Manchester, head south and hook up with the A537, aka “Cat and Fiddle Road”. One of England’s “bendiest” roads, you can look forward to a roller coaster ride of twisty turns and steep drops—oh, and some beautiful landscapes, too.
Don’t throw a strop; searching for mint car hire deals on Wotif is no mither. Ahem, sorry, we got lost in Manchester for a minute there. What we mean is, Wotif makes booking your own set of wheels as easy as mincemeat pie. Plus, we offer top Manchester holiday packages, so you can save even more cash. You’ll be mad fer it, we promise.
