Manchester is such a good city to experience life as student. Its a step down from London in price but has near enough the same amount of things to do! From the Curry Mile, Oxford Road & Manchester City Centre, Chorlton, Northern Quarter and Didsbury theres loads of places to go for food and drinks. TRANSPORT Manchester is also super accessible as daytime and night buses run throughout Manchester frequently - and not just the city centre. Theres also the metro link, train and Uber (if you're lazy like me). NIGHTS OUT Theres so many fun nights out too: you've got NQ for a more casual bar crawl night, deans gate locks on a Friday or Saturday for a more dressy night and club liv If you really wanna go all out! I defo recommend you check out events at Viva if you're into RnB and hip hop too! SHOPPING Manchester is home of the Trafford centre and Manchester Arndale as well as many other retail parks... COOL STUFF If you want some different yet cool stuff to do, the NQ has lots of quirky things and places to develop new skills. Take a visit to the Cat Cafe, or take a dance or pole fitness class at Studio 25! Around Christmas there are the German Markets on Market street in the city centre, theres an ice rink in The Trafford Centre and some really beautiful Christmas decorations.
