    33 year old visiting Manchester in October. Other than what you find online as far as things to see and do, any tips or things to do from some blues out there? I got a full day before and after the game. Thanks

    National Football museum & tour of the ground should fill the day after the game, just drink beer on matchday. ;)

    As blueb4 said , national football museum and city stadium tour are worth a look . Also in city centre is the air/space - science museum which is worth a go . Decent traditio British pubs I can recommend are .....peverevil of the peak , Britons protection , mr. Thomas chop house , marble beer hall , the angel . Have a great trip

    Thanks all! Traveling over there solo so I'm going to hit as many spots as possible being on my own timeline. Whats the favorite spot pre-game where I won't run into any other Americans lol?!?!

    I did the stadium tour last week. I'd highly recommend to book online before you go. Get there early so you can properly experience the memorabilia in the waiting area.

    Isn’t the Football Museum charging silly money when it used to be donation only?

    It’s a tenner for a year’s pass. It’s free if you live in Manchester IIRC

    I’d have to go twice to make it worthwhile. £10 for one trip seems expensive.
