Manchester: National Football Museum
Serviced City Pads is turning its eyes towards Manchester, there are lots of things to see and do in the city Summer time, but we’re off to get our hands on the FA cup.
Manchester is home to the National Football Museum, that’s right, the city is busy representing and preserving the history of football for the entire country. And why not? Manchester is home to two Premier League teams which play in a pair of world famous stadiums – drawing fans and investment from across the globe.
The museum is situated in the Urbis building amid lush green Cathedral Gardens, so on a sunny day you can bring along a ball and have a lazy kick about before heading inside to tour the world’s greatest football Hall of Fame. The current exhibition highlights the dynamic relationship between football and fashion, documenting the rocky journey from “kop to catwalk”. This is more than a slideshow of football kits – you’ll be looking at the threads owned by mods and skinheads, in addition to the iconic clothes worn off the pitch by some of the sports’ biggest stars.
A trip to the National Football Museum is an experience for all the family, even if none of you like football. The sport has been a fundamental part of British social history, so people from all walks of life will have memories triggered by the exhibits and interactive games. For little ones there is a specially designed Discovery Zone where they can dress up and play, whilst big kids will love practicing their commentating skills in the Match of the Day Challenge.
Nearby is Manchester Cathedral if you fancy admiring the architecture, and the Arndale Shopping centre, with all its wonderful stores and restaurants, is literally around the corner.
