    Find Family Days Out In Manchester

    There are lots of things to do in Manchester to keep all the family, especially the football lovers, happy!

    The National Football Museum is a sport lovers dream. Take a walk through the history of the game and spot your favourite heroes or legends as you go. From iconic strips, to memorable goals, it’s sure to score high on entertainment!

    For hardcore Manchester United fans you can go behind the scenes at Old Trafford and see the pitch through the eyes of a professional footballer with the 80-minute Manchester United Museum and Tour.

    Kick off those football boots and head back into the city for a bit of bite-sized LEGOLAND fun. The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is a tantalizing taster of its older sibling in Windsor. Here you can sample Merlin’s Magical Potion Room, enjoy a ride or two and dive into the biggest box of Lego with over 2 million bricks!

    Manchester family days out adventures don’t come any better than the aquatic variety (just ask Nemo) and at Sea Life Manchester you can spot a clownfish, feed giant turtles and seek out an eight-legged friend in the Octopus Hideout.

    All of that excitement is bound to have worked up an appetite, so head to the Manchester Arndale where you can browse over 250 shops and choose from a wide range of eateries, guaranteed to satisfy your hunger after a full, fun day!

    Want to check when the next school holiday is so you can plan your family days out? We've got a handy breakdown of the UK school holidays to help. It's currently February half term and the next break is the Easter school holidays.
