Top UK Travel Destination For 2023

The 2023 edition of Lonely Planet's “Best in Travel” list has chosen Manchester as one of its must-visit destinations for 2023.

This year's list centers expert local perspectives at the heart of each destination, and are split up into eat, journey, connect, learn and unwind category.

Manchester features under “learn”, praised for its dynamic arts scene, and described as a place that has “grown in both size and renown in recent years, metamorphosing into a brilliantly creative, proudly musical and gastronomically diverse hub. Quite simply, it’s one of the best – if not the best – cities in the UK, with something for everyone.”

Manchester’s citation highlights the February reopening of Manchester Museum, the recently expanded Manchester Jewish Museum, and Factory International, a cultural hub set to open next June, after delays and £100m over budget.

What To Do In Manchester

As the world’s first industrial city, Manchester has always been about redbrick urbanity and vocal street culture, but in 2022 something changed: it got greener.

Whether you’re seeking culture, nightlife, history, or just good fun, there are plenty of things to do in Manchester.

Lonely Planet singled out the National Trust’s project to turn a disused railway bridge into a park called Castlefield Viaduct.

If you are into gothic architecture, you can visit John Rylands Library and Manchester Cathedral. You can also visit Manchester Museum and the Imperial War Museum North to discover old and new history.

For those who enjoy getting active, a short journey from the city centre provides access to beautiful scenery in Hollingworth Lake, Heaton Park, Sale Water Park and Haigh Hall. There are also many opportunities to go sightseeing in Greater Manchester, with a number of walking tours, bus and taxi tours such as the Sightseeing Manchester Bus Tour.
