Flights to Manchester, the world’s very first industrialized city
Say Manchester and the next word that seems to directly follow is “United” or “City.” This city lives for football (or, for its friends on the other side of the Atlantic, soccer). You can catch a game at Old Trafford (United) and visit its museum or at City of Manchester Stadium (City). If you just can’t get enough, schedule in a visit to the National Football Museum to get a glimpse of famous trophies and other football artefacts first hand. Another popular educational visit directly related to what makes Manchester so special is the People’s History Museum, which covers labor and politics over the past 200 years. Admission to both museums is free. The Museum of Science & Industry plays homage to the city’s industrial past and looks to its innovative future. If younger members of the family accompany you, the museum has all sorts of things for children to tinker with and get creative. The Manchester area was where the vegetarian movement began in the late 19th century and the city has tons of eateries that offer meat-free options. It also has nearly 20 halal restaurants.
Travel with ease from Riyadh to Manchester
Manchester is a UNESCO City of Literature, one of under 30 worldwide, due in part to it being home to the UK’s oldest public lending library, the birthplace of Elizabeth Gaskell and Anthony Burges, and having the John Rylands Library, whose stained glass windows overlooking the stacks harken back to medieval places of worship. One major modern landmark in Manchester is the Beetham Tower, the tallest building in the city and tallest outside of London in the United Kingdom. The Tower emits a distinctive hum on windy days. Another, albeit very distinct, landmark on the monument-studded Albert Square is the Manchester Town Hall, built at the city’s industrial height in Gothic revival style to accommodate its growing needs in the late 19th century. One of the most modern buildings in the city is One Angel Square, completed in 2013, which is amongst the most sustainable large buildings in Europe with rainwater harvesting, double-skin façade, biodiesel cogeneration for heating and power, and waste heat recycling.
