Housing one of the largest collections of Pre-Raphaelite paintings in the world, this museum is chock-full of famous paintings you’ve only ever seen in books, with over 13,000 pieces in its Classics exhibit alone. There are also over 21,000 pieces in the costume exhibit, covering aspects of fashion and textiles from 1600 to the present day. Haven't you ever wanted to see a 17th-century codpiece up close?
Sweat it out on the dance floor at Sankey's
More than a little dark and dirty, this isn't the kind of spot you’d want to wear your new white trainers to. But if your heart beats to the rhythm of house, garage, and electro, you’ll feel right at home. With a busy calendar of world-renowned artists and DJs ready to roll on the top-notch sound system, plus a history of breaking artists like Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers, this classic dance hall will create some of the best (albeit fuzzy) experiences of your dancing life.
Cost: Plan ahead, and tickets can be as cheap as a fiver.
