To start I'd say the nights out in Manchester are amazing, well much better than what I intilally expected. Always busy and not boring which is a good thing. I do however think the price of most places for drinks are a little pricey as s student but what can ya do. Shopping in Manchester is great, lots on offer and considering you have the Arndale or Trafford centre you don't need much more places to shop! I recently went to junkyard golf which was good , you just drink and play mini golf what else could you want. I'd recommend doing this as it's not too expensive and it is good fun. Going out to eat in Manchester is also good, lots to offer in terms of different cuisines, you can also find some hidden gems sometimes which make super tasty food. Only annoyance I have is transport which is currently an issue seemingly with the train strikes going on recently it is annoying but not much can be done.
