Summer in the city: Making most of sunny days in Manchester

Summer in the city: Making most of sunny days in Manchester

There's something magical about a sunny day in Manchester City Centre. The sun seems to capture the cityscape, making the stunning view from our rental apartments in Manchester even more breath-taking.

Our luxury apartments in Manchester serve as an excellent base for exploring the city's sunlit treasures all year round. With summer just around the corner, and the forecast looking good, we thought it would be a great time to share our favourite places to enjoy the sunny weather. 

Whether it's a leisurely stroll along the canal by AXIS or indulging in some retail therapy from Manhattan, there's a plethora of experiences awaiting in the city centre for our residents. However, look slightly further afield, loads of great outdoor activities lie just beyond our doorstep. 

Our Summer Picks:

  • Heaton Park: Renowned for hosting the annual Parklife festival, Heaton Park offers a farm and animal centre, a golf course, a bowling green, and a boating lake. Plus, it's conveniently accessible by tram.

  • Treetop Trek, Prestwich: Nestled within Heaton Park, Treetop Trek presents 20 aerial challenges, featuring ziplines, bridges, and tricky beams.

  • Projekts Skate Park: Hidden beneath the Mancunian Way, this skate park hosts skate sessions and lessons, allowing visitors to enjoy the ramps and half-pipes.

  • Paintballing at Eccles Forest: Delta Force Paintballing provides an exhilarating paintball experience with plenty of hidden sniper spots and diverse game scenarios.

  • Paddleboarding the Bridgewater Canal in Sale: Since 2021, locals have been able to paddleboard and kayak along the Bridgewater Canal – a perfect activity for the warmer months.

  • Water sports at Sale Water Park: Trafford Water Sports Centre offers a range of water activities, including canoeing, kata kanuing, kayaking, raft building, and sailing, typically from April to October.

  • Go Ape, Delamere: A short drive from Manchester, Go Ape features treetop high ropes, forest segways, and ziplines.

  • Dovestone Sailing Club, Oldham: Here, residents can relish a unique sailing experience against the backdrop of the Pennines.

  • The Gardens at Tatton Park: Exploring the gardens at Tatton Park is a delightful way to spend a sunny day, with a walled kitchen-garden, historic glasshouses, and Japanese gardens to discover.

If it's the beach you're craving, Formby Beach is a popular choice among our Manchester residents. Other options include the iconic Blackpool, known for its tower, Pleasure Beach amusement park, and three piers, and don’t forget Morecambe Bay, which boasts stunning views of the Lake District mountains.
