One of the gemstones of the UK is Manchester, famous for being the first industrialised city in the world, with the first working canal in 1761 and world first railway line in 1830. It also at one point had the best football team in the Premier League, has given us some of the best music from the likes of Oasis, Morrissey and more recently Aitch and Bugzy Malone. It is also one of those brilliant destinations that has the buzz of a city in one part of it, but then also has the surroundings of the countryside. This makes it an ideal spot for any motorhome occupant, whether part of the younger or older generation. See below some of my top picks:

The Peak District

One of the UK’s biggest and most beautiful nature reserves, the Peak District can be a hit with the active person of your group or those who want a cosy chilled country weekend. It has breath taking hiking or walking trails where you can Instagram huge valleys, glassy lakes, snowy mountain tops on the horizon and stone villages frozen in time. You can even take a cable car up to The Heights of Abraham to see some of the longest views of Britain. In some of these lakes you can also for the more active person find water sports such as sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and even wild swimming. For the more relaxed and chilled vibe, you can explore the many picturesque villages with many stone cottages and massive stately homes to wander, all generally offering local produce and providing hearty meals to rest and refuel from.

The best place to park your motorhome for the weekend when visiting is Castledon Caravan and Motorhome site, rated 4.8 out of 5 on TripAdvisor.

Morecambe Bay

Fancy going to the beach and seeing an unforgettable sunset? This is the place for you. The huge sandy bay covering 310 square kilometres is also an important wildlife spot boasting a top avid bird watching spot and has become renowned for its flat fishing of plaice and cockles. Don’t let that stop you from taking a dip into the sea though, but keep your eye out depending on where you dip as in Morecambe Bay there are recorded sighting of bottlenose dolphins and grey seals.
