Dinner at Wetherspoons
As part of Ken's 19th birthday present, I organised a day trip to Manchester including a tour around the Manchester City football stadium (Etihad stadium). As I've written before in my 'A Day in Aberdeen' post, Ken and I love to travel and are always talking about which cities we'd like to visit together in the future, so I thought a little day trip to Manchester would be perfect as part of his Birthday gift.

After a 90 minute tour of the football stadium, we took a tram back into central Manchester, escaped to Taco Bell for lunch and had a wander around the city centre for a few hours before our train home in the evening. We visited Manchester Cathedral, Town Hall and the Art Galleries. Mid-afternoon, we popped into a bar ('The Old Wellington') for a drink. The half-timbered public house is a beautiful inn with a really lovely beer garden, which was really enjoyable with the sun shining.

Of course, we couldn't resist a Wetherspoon's dinner in the evening followed by lots of coffee's and hot chocolates to end a busy and tiresome, yet very enjoyable, day exploring Manchester city.
