Kids in the City: Manchester

Manchester is brimming with activities for children of all ages. Manchester hotels are a convenient way of making the most out of your visit; as well as two days of local events and attractions, an overnight stay will give you time to dine.

The Lowry

Just outside central Manchester, on the Salford Quays, the Lowry theatre holds regular children’s performances as well as low-cost art and craft workshops.

Book online when looking at Manchester hotels to avoid disappointment, as places are limited.

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre

This indoor attraction is located within Barton Square at the Trafford Centre. The Discovery Centre has a replica LEGO factory, impressive models and themed play areas to keep the kids entertained.

The 4D LEGO brings favourites (such as Bob the Builder) to life while older children will enjoy the motorised LEGO building workshops available.

Buses to the Trafford Centre run regularly from Manchester city centre, near most central Manchester hotels.

Chill Factore

While at Barton Square, why not nip across to Chill Factore, the UK’s Premier Snowsports Centre of Excellence.

Sledge, ski and snowboard down the award-winning slopes in an afternoon of adrenaline-packed sporting fun.

Those who are new to snowsports can join in the fun without investing in full gear. Chill Factore has clothing and equipment hire service for all the family.

Crocky Trail

Families who are venturing to the city in their cars must pay a visit to Crocky Trail in Cheshire.

The perfect summer activity, Crocky Trail is a mile long adventure filled with mazes, bridges, tunnels and more.

Kids will be ready to drop after a day at Crocky Trail and hit theirs sacks at one of Travelodge’s Manchester hotels.

Rest your heads at Travelodge’s Manchester hotels and spread the northern fun over a short break.
