I am planning to visit a friend in Manchester around 3/14 - 3/21.
She is in the area for work for a month
Can you recommend a place to stay (several price ranges would be good), what to do in Manchester area, we will not have a car which is probably a good thing since I can't drive a standard shift and it is on the other side of the road. We might spend the weekend in London. Is this a good idea? Where should we stay? Any suggestions about the train from London to Manchester.
I am thinking of flying in to Heathrow and taking the train to Manchester rather than waiting 3-4 hours for the 1 hour plane trip. Is this a good idea.
What about pubs and such in Manchester and London?
Affordable theatre in London?
I have never been to England and I am so excited.
Any and all suggestions appreciated.
