It’s English Tourism Week 2024 and you don’t have to go far from Manchester to visit some lovely spots.

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.
