Day 1

Travel to hotel.

Arrive at your hotel in time to relax before dinner or why not take the chance to explore the vibrant city of Manchester.

Day 2

Red or Blue?

After breakfast, you have the chance to enjoy a tour of either Manchester United’s Old Trafford or Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium and find out about the history of the Club.
