Caravan Sites, Caravan Parks and Campsites in Greater Manchester

A colourful, cosmopolitan city full of life and atmosphere, Manchester is the perfect place to set up base at one of the numerous caravan sites, to explore the local area. Join the tourists as Manchester is the third-most visited city in the UK by foreign visitors, after London and Edinburgh, and the most visited in England outside London.

Leave your touring caravan or motorhome at the caravan site and make the most of Manchester’s local transport ranging from foot paths, bus and train journeys, the local tram, cycle paths and even the airport. Alternatively look at the history of transport at the Museum of Science and Industry - Manchester was the site of one of the world's first railway stations, and the place where scientists first split the atom and developed the first stored-program computer.

Whether you are a football fanatic, visit Manchester United’s home ground at Old Trafford, or rivals, City at Etihad Stadium, or feel like shopping till you drop in Manchester’s buzzing shopping scene, from little boutique stores in the Northern Quarter, to the massive Arndale and Trafford Centre’s – just make sure that you’ll still fit in your caravan with all your new purchases, Manchester is the perfect place for your next caravanning holiday.

The industrial revolution left its mark on Manchester, due to the production of textile manufacture – the majority of cotton spinning took place in the towns of Lancashire and Cheshire, and Manchester was for a time the most productive centre of cotton processing and later the world's largest marketplace for cotton goods and just outside the city centre you will find dozens of cotton mill, many of which are open to the public today.

Alternatively take a break from caravanning and caravan life and immerse yourself in local culture at the Lowery Centre, take a stroll through time at the Imperial War Museum or just wonder the streets to see if you can find the inspiration for TV’s Coronation Street. Visit the local library which is at the back of the Town Hall (built in the Gothic revival style and is considered to be one of the most important Victorian buildings in England), close to Albert Square.
