Greater Manchester has some legendary footy teams (big up Altrincham and Stalybridge Celtic) and musos love local bands like The Beatles, The Stone Roses and The Smiths. Want a stag or hen do to remember (in a bit of a blur)? Lancashire’s Blackpool’s like Vegas with better fish and chips.

But what else can you get up to in the North West?

How about channeling your inner Tommy Shelby at Cheshire’s posh Arley Hall Peaky Blinders filming spot? Or hanging with the chimps at Chester Zoo? From Barrow-in-Furness to Bolton, this bit of England has cracking countryside, great history, and lush pubs.

For family breaks or boozy weekends, the North West will definitely float your boat.
