A trip to one of the UK’s best cities needn’t break the bank. We’ve even done the research for you

You’ve got £100 in your wallet. Forget one night out in London – try a weekend trip to one of these cities and you’ll have change to spare.


Manchester

You’ve probably heard the Mancs are ‘madferit’, and you heard right. From football to Britpop, there’s little Mancunians won’t shout about. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em with a trip to the National Football Museum, which has free entry, or for £16 you can head to Old Trafford for a tour of Manchester United’s stadium and museum.

For something less, er, football-y, take a stroll around Castlefield, a conservation area that offers a pretty canal, attractive restored warehouses and intricately designed bridges. 

Get there: London to Manchester from £5 each way (uk.megabus.com). 

Sleep
: Hatters Hostel on Newton Street offers beds from £16.50pn (). EAT: Line your stomach with pie and mash for £5.50 at Pi

Drink: The funky Font Bar serves cocktails for a mere £2.



Liverpool

Another city full of footie and music, a trip here isn’t complete without a Cavern Club Beatles Magical Mystery Tour. The £15.95 fee includes entry into the evening’s show at Cavern Club, featuring a Beatles tribute act, naturally.

The tour of Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium costs from £12, while some freebie outings could see you taking a stroll around the Albert Dock heritage site, visiting the Tate, or the aquarium, planetarium and big house at the World Museum
