Aside from drinking there are plenty of other attractions, which could provide a great way to spend the days, such as a tour of old Trafford, we know it might not be for everyone but it’s a pretty impressive stadium. Other attractions we would recommend are visiting one of Manchester’s escape rooms, in particular Manchester Breakout; apparently all the range lately it’s up to a group of you to solve clues and breakout of the room before the time runs out, of course there are plenty of distractions.

With it being such a condensed city you rarely feel the drop in temperature, also everything is either a tram stop of a bike ride away. We’d recommend riding a bike, purely because it’s one of them things you have to do when in Amsterdam. Aside from the culture, the one thing Amsterdam isn’t lacking is pubs and clubs, so we’ve found some of the best:
