Well, if you’re that kind of thrifty or sadly in a tight budget, you must know that the prices of the goods you may find in the city of Manchester are somewhat pricier compared in other European cities.

4. Rain in Manchester


There are lots [if not all] of European countries, cities, and counties that are surprisingly experiencing a constant change in climate or weather and the city of Manchester is one of them! Having that said, you're advised to carry with you your lovely and windproof umbrella when travelling to Manchester. It's because you might be enjoying the glimmering sun for a while and then woof! there goes the rain to end your sunny day!

5. Do not ask for doggie bags


Restaurants usually serve moderate portions that most people will be able to finish. If you are not sure about how much you can eat, order in steps. You may start ordering your primary (a pasta, a risotto or a soup, most commonly), then add some secondary (meat or fish, or also eggs) or vegetables. That is perfectly OK. But try to finish whatever you get served. Leaving any food is usually a message to the kitchen that their food is sub-par.

6. Do not expect shops to always accept larger bills and credit cards


By law all shops should now be equipped to accept ATM payment (debit card), but most shops are tiny, run by just one or two people, and banks do not work on business-friendly hours. The shops do not accept dollars, but do accept Visa and MasterCard - less often Amex or Discover, though. If you find a shop outside an airport that does accept dollars, go to another shop - the one you’re in will gouge you.

This means that many smaller shops do not accept credit cards (especially American Express, which is the most costly) and often don’t have much change on hand. Be ready to use an ATM card or to pay cash trying to meet the exact price as closely as possible.

7. Getting Around Manchester

Simply because this city has a bunch of crazy and mind-blowing offers waiting for you to try and see. And if you wouldn't plan and prepare for your Manchester trip carefully, for sure, you'll feel awful and very sorry.

The laws that apply in the United Kingdom are the laws of the United Kingdom. Unless you are in your own embassy, the laws of the USA and/or your home state do not apply, and nor do the rights they grant you. Cross the street where you like and enjoy a beer or six at 18 years of age.
