To get a sense of what makes Manchester tick, spread your wings and discover nearby areas such as Ashton-under-Lyne, Chadderton, and Oldham.
Those interested in exhibits and shows will find some interesting museums, exhibits and venues in and around Failsworth. Spend a quiet afternoon discovering the exhibits at Urbis, the Chinese Arts Centre and the Manchester Jewish Museum. For a great night out, pick up some tickets to Printworks and the O2 Apollo Manchester, one of the region’s most popular performing arts venues.
Hunt down a bargain, stock up on groceries or just people-watch at popular shopping destinations like Arndale Centre and Affleck's Palace.
Nearby Manchester Velodrome is a great place to catch a game of cycling, and to see local heroes, the Team Sky, in action. On game days follow the river of black and blue, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fellow sports lovers in the nearby pubs for a few post-game beers.
When it’s time to slow down after a long day exploring the charming streets of Failsworth, check in to one of the area’s convenient bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. Take your pick from the Britannia Hotel - Manchester City Centre, the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel, or the Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa.
