Take the kids to Quarry Bank Mill, near Manchester airport. Great insight into Manchester's industrial heritage; the weaving machines are great when working (from 12pm onwards), and they'll enjoy the tour of the Apprentice House (where kids who used to work in the Mill used to live); will help them see how good things are these days.
