Hire a Car and Explore the Countryside
While Manchester is famed for its trams, cobbled streets and industrial heritage, in little more than an hour’s drive from Manchester Airport you could be walking some of Britain’s most beautiful natural trails, or sitting beside a roaring fire in a traditional Peak District pub. A popular tourist destination, the Peak District National Park is large enough to never feel crowded, though you’ll definitely need a car to get to the quietest spots.
Enjoy More with a Car Rental
If you can’t get enough of natural beauty then take the short drive from Manchester, north up the M6, to the glorious Lake District. Driving along stunning, winding lakeside roads, you can take in the spectacular scenery that inspired the poet, Wordsworth, in comfort. With hillsides reflected in the still water, it’s an idyllic view and all accessible by hire car.
