We’ve been taking a look at some of the great things you can do around Manchester without having to dig deep into your wallet.

Manchester is brim-full of interesting places to see and things to do - but with the cost of living crisis showing no sign of abating many people are looking to enjoy themselves while also giving the wallet something of a break.

Fortunately that is not a problem in our city either, with lots of Manchester’s biggest attractions allowing visitors in for free.

We’ve been taking a look at some of the most popular places to go without having to hand over an entry fee.

So whether you want to explore the richness of the world of arts and culture with a tour around a museum or art gallery, enjoy an interactive hands-on day out with the family or think about more recent and modern history, here are nine suggestions for free things to do in Manchester.
