We’ve picked out some of our highlights for this year for you

Manchester Arndale

No visit to Manchester is complete without a nosey around the Arndale. Manchester Arndale is the centre of Manchester, opposite Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Primark and home to over 200 stylish stores for you to explore.

Manchester Arndale has several flagship stores, including the largest Next in the UK and Ireland, the UK’s second largest Topshop / Topman, and concept stores from JD Sports and Superdry.  It’s not all about fashion and beauty though, there’s also a range of big international brands like Apple, Nespresso, Disney, LEGO and Lindt.

Blackburn Cathedral

Blackburn Cathedral is one of England's newest cathedrals, yet it is one of the country's oldest places of Christian worship. For many centuries, this has been the Parish Church of Blackburn dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin.

It continues as a place of prayer and worship and is now at the centre of the Diocese which takes in almost the whole of Lancashire.
