The summer holidays may be coming to a close but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a city break with the kids in Manchester. Once they’re back at school, you could opt for a suitable weekend, bundle the stuff in the back of your car and head for this northern city once you’ve done the school run, returning on Sunday in plenty of time for them to have a good sleep for school the following day.

City breaks are a great way to spend a weekend with the kids, introducing them to things they may not have had chance to appreciate before. With plenty of Manchester hotels available that are family-friendly and centrally located, you know you’re in the right place for a fun-filled break and with Hotels4U, you can be sure of great value for money, too.

Stay in the city center and you have a wealth of attractions at your disposal. Perhaps the popular Museum of Science and Industry takes your fancy, or perhaps the marine life at the new SEALIFE Centre would be more up your street?

We all know kids love to run off some steam and with Chill Factore, they can do just that. Well, it’s not really running off the steam – more skiing and snowboarding it off, in an indoor snowpark that offers some great opportunities for everyone.

Head for the Eureka! National Children’s Museum which helps to introduce your kids to the world with the help of a novel, hands-on perspective. Alternatively, the LEGO Discovery Centre is awesome for budding builders.

Whatever you choose to fill your time with, there’s an abundance of activities and attractions in Manchester that are ideal options for those travelling with the brood. Take a look at this vibrant city for your family city break, today.

Fact: Manchester is the sixth-largest city in the United Kingdom.
