The third-busiest of the UK's air hubs, Manchester Airport is set on the southern edge of the conurbation in Ringway, with easy access from the M6 motorway. Manchester city centre is a 20-minute drive away, and the A538 runs to the towns of Altringham and Wilmslow in the neighbouring county of Cheshire. Motorhome hire is easy to book, with agents close by in Sale or Stockport happy to deliver your rental motorhome to the airport on your arrival.
The area makes a good base for touring the beauties of the Derbyshire Peak District or heading out on the M62 to gritty Liverpool and the spectacular North Wales coastline with its ancient castles backed by the mountains of Snowdonia. To the south of Manchester you'll find rural countryside, and Roman Chester is an hour's drive to the southwest.
The city of Manchester, once the home of Industrial Revolution back-to-back hovels and dark satanic mills, is now the cultural, nightlife and shopping heart of the Northwest. Castlefield, the site of Roman Mamcumium, boasts 17th century city walls and the basin of the Rochdale and Bridgewater canals, and the Museum of Science and Industry holds Liverpool Road, the world's first rail station.
The city's plethora of Victorian buildings including its imposing Town Hall are a reminder of its past as the centre of the cotton industry, and the former Salford Quays docks around the Manchester Ship Canal linking with Liverpool's port are now an upscale entertainment, recreation and trendy residential area.
A 45-minute drive north on the M6 and M56 motorways brings you to the Rossendale Valley, the entrance to the wild Lancashire Pennines moorlands. The charming villages with their stone-built 18th and 19th century cottages include Helmshore with its working 18th century mill, and continuing north on the A56 brings you to the lovely Forest of Bowland.
Hollybank Caravan Park Set on the outskirts of the city close by the M6 motorway for easy touring access and just 11kms from downtown, Hollybank offers all the necessary facilities for a motorhome holiday in the northwest of England. A stroll away are pubs, restaurants and shops in pretty Lynn village, and upscale Alderley Edge is a short drive away.
Elm Beds Caravan Park, is set opposite Elms Wood in Stockport, and is one of the closest motorhome parks to the airport. It's a small, peaceful site in rural surroundings next to the Macclesfield Canal, and offers electric hookups, waste disposal and a nearby pub serving traditional pub grub.
Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site Set off the M56 just north of Manchester is Burrs Country Park conservation area, with its gem of a caravan site nestling along the River Irwell. The historic East Lancashire Steam Railway line borders the site, and facilities live up to the Caravan Club's high standards. There's a direct tram link to Manchester, and WiFi internet is provided.
Motorways surround Manchester, making a touring holiday easy to plan but, as with most major UK cities, driving in town during rush hour can be stressful and the M6/M62 route to the northeast is often congested. Downtown multi-storey car parks are expensive, and car crime is a problem in the open-air parks near Piccadilly and Salford rail stations.
