Manchester is a great place to be a student, with loads of different options for nights out, weekend activities and food and drink. The city centre has nearly all UK chain restaurants and bars, but also lots of independent options too. The Northern Quarter is great for a night out, but also for chilled drinks and brunch. There are lots of activities in the city centre, like crazy golf and bowling, both of which offer food and cocktail offers. The public transport is great, the Metrolink tram pass is good value for money and allows you to visit places like West Didsbury or Heaton Park and get out of the city centre.
