During your time at the United in Manchester Summer School, there will be opportunities to visit some of the amazing places in the north of England.
Read more about the places we organise trips to.
The Lake District
One of the most visited places in England and if you take this trip, you will find out why. The trip starts at Windermere when you can enjoy boating on the lake, visit Beatrix Potter and many more activities. You could take the boat across the lake and travel on the steam railway. If you like walking you will find many places to explore either at a robust (get year heart beating) or sedate pace. Take this trip and you will have the chance to fill your lungs with fresh air.

Think of Liverpool and the Beatles and the Mersey are probably the first things to pop into your head. But did you know that it’s also a Unesco World Heritage City and is home to the oldest Chinese community in Europe? Liverpool also has the distinction of being named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a designation that covers six locations in the centre of Liverpool including Pier Head, Albert Dock, and William Brown Street. The city is a popular shopping destination too, particularly around trendy Liverpool One, a 42-acre site dedicated to serious retail therapy.

Quarry Bank Mill
Founded in 1784, Quarry Bank Mill is one of the best preserved textile mills of the Industrial Revolution. On your visit, you can explore the story of mill workers, the domestic life of the Greg family who ran the mill, their possessions and extraordinary machines and other items relating to the cotton industry, and discover how the Industrial Revolution changed our world forever.

There are over 2000 years of history to be enjoyed in York. The city contains many interesting buildings and a wall that embraces the city, a city build by the Romans. However, you can also appreciate more recent history, well about 200 years old, that of the railways because York was and still is a very important railway town. If history does not interest you, wander down the narrow but delightful shopping streets; be warned it will be very difficult to keep your money in your pocket (or your phone or bankcard).
