Best time to visit Manchester

Manchester is located in the north of England and therefore can experience quite cold winters accompanied by snowfall. January and February are when temperatures are at their lowest. The summer months are the most popular time to visit the city, with a lot of events scheduled around this time. Rainfall is common in Manchester, so be sure to pack an umbrella. 

There are plenty of attractions to see no matter what time of the year you visit Manchester, but you may be lucky enough that your visit coincides with a football match. The city has two Premier League teams, Manchester United and Manchester City, so be sure to check the schedule. If you visit in June, there are plenty of events to keep you busy, whether it is a popular music festival Parklife or the exciting Manchester Day celebrations. 

Driving tips in Manchester

Once you have picked up your hire car, there is plenty to see.  After you have visited Manchester's top attractions, you might like to take a road trip to London. This route should take around 3.5 hrs to 4 hrs depending on local traffic. Congestion around the major cities in the UK is quite common.  Before hopping in your hire car, it is advisable to check the live traffic updates in Manchester so you can avoid getting stuck in on a congested road.
