With its rich industrial heritage, Manchester has a lot of history and culture to explore.
Take your date to the Museum of Science & Industry or Manchester Museum for something fun or for something a little more adventurous, go skiing or snowboarding at Chill Factore indoor slope!
If your date is a fan of Coronation Street, then The Tour is a must-see as you get to walk the famous cobbles.
For something a bit different, The Police Museum in the Northern Quarter is a little known gem of policing history, situated in an old police station.
If you're both fans of football, the National Football Museum is where you can see important collections of football memorabilia on display, which will give you plenty to talk about.
If you'd rather meet for a quick coffee or bite to eat, the Trafford Centre offers a wide range of cafes, restaurants and bars, including The Sip Club - an award winning bar, The Curry Mile - a nickname for part of Rusholme where you'll find the best authentic taste of India in its many Indian restaurants.
There's something for everyone in Manchester whether you're looking for a relaxing drink or looking for more of a thrill.
