Enjoy Manchester

Manchester is a dramatic mix of old and new, combining its strong industrial heritage with the 21st century to create a cosmopolitan, vibrant city.

The people of Manchester are well known for their easy-going, friendly nature and you are sure to make new friends on a visit to one of Manchester's many traditional English pubs, bars or cafés. Restaurants in Manchester are of an excellent standard and offer all kinds of cuisine from the Mediterranean to the Far East and not forgetting traditional British classics such as fish and chips.

If it is culture you want then you will be spoilt for choice with Manchester's many  theatres, galleries, museums and cinemas. The city also has a strong musical heritage and an abundance of live music venues to choose from. Shopping in Manchester is world class, you will find everything you want in the vibrant shopping centre, from stylish department stores to quirky, typically British boutiques.

And for sports fans let us not forget our famous football teams, Manchester City who play at the City of Manchester stadium, which was originally built to host the Commonwealth Games 2002 and Manchester United who are based at the historic Old Trafford football ground. Both stadiums offer fantastic tours, definitely worth a visit!

ACCORD Manchester will help you to find your bearings and settle in quickly. We will also be happy to help you organise outings and excursions, give advice on seasonal events, help you to book visits to the theatre, cinema or live events and more.

Trips outside Manchester

To help you to discover a more traditional way of life in England and explore more than just the city centre here in Manchester we recommend events, visits and excursions.


Beautiful British countryside such as the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, rural Lancashire and the historic cities of York and Chester, Cheshire and its grand stately homes are all easily accessible from Manchester. All provide a relaxing and peaceful day out away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Business and Social Programme

ACCORD Manchester is one of the only English language schools in England to offer business events and activities for its Business English students. We can offer our students the chance to meet with contacts in our business network and experience how British companies work.

We enable our learners to get an insight into British working life and experience working environments by taking our students to business networking events or on company visits whenever possible to meet with local business people. Our business contacts also come to the school to talk about their professional activities and make presentations about their business.
