As one of the leading centres of England's life and landscape-transforming Industrial Revolution, Manchester has more industrial heritage than most United Kingdom cities. The old mines, docks and mills may have fallen silent but there are plenty of things still to see in this vibrant modern metropolis, including relics from that industrial landscape itself. The great museums of Manchester, especially the Museum of Science and Industry, are packed with things of interest such as original loom frames and steam engines, but products of more recent enterprise are also well worth a visit from your Manchester hotel or guesthouse base. The AJ Bell Stadium is one such attraction that you can easily reach for an enjoyable afternoon out.
The AJ Bell rugby stadium in Salford, Greater Manchester, was designed for Salford rugby league club, Sale Sharks. It replaced their old ground, The Willows, in time for the 2012 season. AJ Bell stadium can seat an audience of 12,000, and its modern facilities are state-of-the-art, providing comfort and style for corporate and regular visitors whilst they watch the Sale Sharks in action. Whether you're a fan of the game or not, the AJ Bell stadium is always worth a visit from your Manchester hotel, and there are direct tram and bus links with the city centre. There's plenty of parking for cars and coaches too, and rugby enthusiasts come here from around the country to enjoy the excitement and atmosphere on match days.
The stadium's West Stand is the main all-seater, home also to the luxurious executive boxes. Lucky for the privileged few, you might think, but ordinary punters have a comfortable time of it too, with 4,500 comfortable covered seats from which to watch games. If you prefer to really get into the mood you can opt for the standing spaces behind the goal posts, where 2,600 spectators can jostle, gesticulate and bellow encouragement from the North and South Stands! From your Manchester hotel you should try to catch a match here if at all possible.
