I am spending a week in Manchester in about 3 weeks time. I am going there on a boring business trip – these are things that I would rather did not exist. This article will be describing my quest to obtain some of the local information that I was interesed in, such as finding out about whats on Manchester, the best cheap hotels, the local theatres, the museums and eating out Manchester.
My first port of call was my father who has seemingly been to every city on the planet. Yes this is, of course, going somewhat over the top, however every time I tell him that I am about to visit Liverpool, for example, he replies with “I have been there”. And yes he had been to Manchester as well! The main problem being that it was so long ago that he was quite sure that the information that I was after, with regards hotels and restaurants and the like, would not be relevant from back then.
It was then the turn of my friends to be hassled but they were rather clueless in truth. This is when I decided to go online. Looking back going on the internet should have probably been where I searched at the outset as it rarely lets me down. I really think that I would now be rather lost without it – without that amazing ability to search etc.
I am now fully armed with a great knowledge of this wonderful city – I know where I am going to be eating, I know where I am going to be staying and I know where there is live music Manchester as well – good old internet!
If you are looking to locate the essential information about a specific city then the world wide web is likely to provide you with the answers – it certainly helped me to find what I was looking for, as described above and I am sure it will for you as well – Good luck!
