Getting around Manchester

The city centre is easily accessible by foot, but if your shoes just aren't practical enough you can hop on one of the many free city shuttle buses, which run every 5 minutes and can transport you across the city. This is a great inexpensive way to explore the city and see what's on offer to you and the girls on your hen weekend.

Trams are also a popular mode of transport in Manchester, with day saver passes offering a cheap way to see the city. Tickets cost around £4 and are valid all day. Taxis are much cheaper in the north and Manchester is no exception, with a city centre trip costing around £3 they're a great way to get back to your hen party accommodation after a late night of enjoying the Mancunian nightlife.

As you'd expect in a big city, buses run regularly and efficiently throughout the day and night! Manchester may be a large city but you will have no trouble exploring on offer with a large selection of public transport to see you on your way.

Maximise did such an amazing job of arranging activities for my sisters Hen Do in Manchester, none of us had been to Manchester before so it was daunting but Maximise found us the closest location to our hotel and sent all the details and directions to me and even a reminder on the morning of the activities. Everyone loved the activities and it really made the hen do, it's all everyone keeps talking about! To top it off Joe left us a lovely bottle of Bubbly at the bar too. Would recommend you to everyone in future!!! Thank you so much!
