Walkden Gardens

Reviewed By MC71113 - Manchester, United Kingdom

I was completely unaware of the Gardens until we booked to see the Folksy Theatre perform here in August. We arrived early and had a lovely walk around prior to enjoying a picnic and performance in a secluded area. Lots of friendly volunteers offering assistance and information. Will be back to this hidden gem.

Booked this as a surprise for myself and my 64 year old mother who is usually somewhat of a daredevil. When the surprise was revealed she was quite nervous about whether she would be able to manage the course, Beth and Cam were so supportive, encouraging her to look at the course prior to putting on harnesses and giving her reassurance that they would be on hand to help her. It is solely down to them that she even attempted any of the obstacles, they explained everything so well and clearly for the group. Got mother on the course but she gradually turned more and more white so after obstacle number 3 we decided to save her blood pressure and call it quits. Beth and cam were so supportive of her, helping her back and trying to gently encourage her to try again. We didn't end up going back on or even completing the course but really feel they deserve a shout out for excellent customer service!

Having visit Manchester with a 3 and half years old Grandson We wanted something to occupy him to past our time. Check on website for any local attraction and this one came up. It only open on Sunday and there was a lot of people...MoreThank you HungaryHopper for your review. We have put many requests to the local authorities for public toilets, but unsuccessful. There is a ice cream van that attends most Sundays. We look forward to seeing you again.

Ordsall Hall

Reviewed By diner19

Easy to get to, central near Sainsburys. We regularly drop by and always find something fascinating in this beautifully restored Tudor house set in child friendly Gardens. The staff and vounteers are extremely helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. A joy for children as almost everything is very hands on, from sitting at enormous banquet table with wooden plates and pewter tankards to dressing up in chain mail or gowns. Go - just drop by for a quick wander or stay for a browse and cup of coffee. When we visited they also had a beautiful display of silk work in side room. Entry free

Worthington Park

Reviewed By TartanLad48 - Manchester UK

This is a truly lovely park, always buzzing at weekend and kept looking fantastic despite high usage. Despite not being huge it has lots of different facets and a great mix of open space and intersting plant life. Pretty much a perfect park for the town it serves.

Visitors can take their seat in the Managers' chair in the dugout and imagine the roar of the crowd on a match day. Additionally, visitors can have a bite to eat at the Manchester United Red Cafe. Visitors from all over the world are welcome to Old Trafford, and audio guides, souvenir guides and guided tours are available in a range of languages. We're committed to giving the same great experience to all visitors, so the tour of Old Trafford is fully accessible to wheelchair users, and the Museum has a lift to allow access to all 3 floors. Whether you're a Manchester United fan or not, a visit to Old Trafford stadium is a day to remember.

Although I'm not a fanatic fan of football, I do try to visit the stadiums home to famous football clubs around the country to since I'm already here.
The stadium is really massive. I joined the tour and it's well arranged and accommodates the group in an orderly manner.
There's no self-exploring in the stadium. Besides, you can get lost among the many doors.

I'm still buzzing from an amazing night at The Lowry. The company is made up of extraordinary talented dancers who work together to make an unforgettable night's entertainment. The audience was quite small - but more than made up for their size with the warmth of their reception. The dancers are athletic -gorgeous - musical, graceful and brave. A few stood out, but it's not that kind of company, they really are "collaborative". The programme was fascinating, the music well-chosen. It may have been altogether faultless as far as I was concerned. Why can't the Lowry generate a bigger audience for such an amazing troupe?

We went last week to the Sunday market, good atmosphere, loads of food about and lovely craft stalls. I would advise going as it's interesting, loads of people about even though it was cold, but take plenty of money as some of the prices are extortionate!

Reviewed By bazonian2015 - Stockport, United Kingdom

We came to this place as my son is a massive fan of Dangermouse. The exhibition was in a fairly smallish room, loads of various things about Cosgrove and Hall, various Danger mouse picture, a Dangermouse head, some interactive Dangermouse stuff. Had some Postman pat characters from the tv show, various Andy Pandy.
Wind in the willows stuff, some Chorlton and the Wheelies exhibits.
Worth a visit, but does not take long to see.
