English Tourism Week: 7 lovely villages & small towns to visit near Manchester including Disley and Glossop

It’s English Tourism Week 2023 and you don’t have to go far to visit some lovely spots in Greater Manchester and just beyond.

We’re so lucky in Greater Manchester to have so many pretty and historic villages and small towns within easy reach.

You don’t have to travel far out of the hustle and bustle of the city of Manchester to reach stunning countryside, independent high street shops, and lovely walks - some with a good pub and roast dinner at the end. There are also some real hidden gem villages in the area you might not know about.

In celebration of English Tourism Week 2023, we’ve chosen seven lovely spots to explore which are all in Greater Manchester or less than an hour’s drive away.
