Manchester is one of the most student-friendly places in the UK. Every year thousands of young adults from all over the UK, and Ireland come to Manchester to complete their studies. So, if you are going to be studying here this September, here are our top 5 things to do as a student in Manchester. 

Visit The Northern Quarter

Northern Quarter is one of the liveliest places to visit in Manchester, it is full of cool bars, clubs, and restaurants. This place has a lot of character to it. The Northern Quarter has a lot of cool vintage and vinyl stores that you can shop around on your days off from university. The Northern Quarter is home to some of the coolest bars, if you go during the week a lot of places do a happy hour (perfect for students). Some of our favourite places in the Northern Quarter are: Freemount, 7 Sins, Lost In Tokyo, and Wilson’s Social. 

Visit The Free Museums

Manchester is home to plenty of museums that are free to enter. Manchester has a proud industrial history. It is home to the first passenger railway, the suffragette movement, and the first computer. Manchester has a range of different museums perfect for whatever it is you are interested in whether that is science, art, the history of transport, or ancient history, there is something to fit everyone’s interests. 

Visit Salford Quays

Salford Quays is home to the BBC and ITV studios. Salford Quays is a lovely place to go for a walk around the waterside and grab some lunch at the various restaurants around such as The Alchemist, Prezzo, The Botanist, and more. Salford Quays also has The Lowry Theatre, where many comedians have performed before. There are also plenty of shows to see at The Lowry Theatre, again something to suit everyone’s interests. 

Go To A Stadium Tour

Manchester is a huge football city. We recommend visiting Old Trafford and The Etihad Stadium. Even if you are not a football fan, going on a football stadium tour is still an excellent day out. The tours usually last around 70 minutes. Throughout these 70 minutes, you will have the chance to see the trophy room and spend time in the players’ dressing room, and the players’ tunnel. There is also a souvenir shop at the end (who doesn’t love a souvenir shop?). The tickets are usually around £18, and tours run daily. 

Go To A Vinyl Store

Manchester is a fantastic city for music lovers. Whilst you are here, why don’t you visit a vinyl store? Piccadilly Records has a brilliant range of records from local artists and international artists. This is not the only record store in Manchester, however, there are plenty more such as Yes King Records Limited, Vinyl Revival, and Vinyl Exchange.
