Plan Your Manchester Holiday

Surrounding Manchester is a wealth of open countryside, canals, woodlands and quaint villages; the winter can be wet and cold, so if you hope to spend time walking or taking part in outdoor activities, the spring and summer months may be more suitable. If you plan to remain within the city, the weather will matter less with so many shops, restaurants and indoor attractions.

Finding suitable flight deals to Manchester is easy with Etihad’s deals. Tourism is thriving here, and as a city destination there isn’t really a best time to book your tickets to Manchester.
