Mini Travel Guide to Manchester
Away from the city centre and the shops, bars and clubs on offer, the area around southern Manchester (Chorlton, Didsbury, Fallowfield) has a very different vibe. Fallowfield is student chic, while Chorlton and Didsbury have independent coffee shops and pubs and a 20- and 30-somethings cool streak.
All of these are easily accessible after a cheap flight to Manchester. The city centre is a short 20-minute train ride from the airport.
