I often joke with the Hubby that I want to move to Bristol or Milton Keynes just for the shopping. I don’t know anything about either area but I have experienced both The Cribbs Causeway and The Centre MK in wide eyed awe. It’s not even about spending money, I could spend hours in both places just looking! Imagine my need to window shop when a friend started uploading photos of The Trafford Centre to Facebook. I don’t even care that it’s the same company as The Centre MK!
Even though I am pretty well travelled I have never been to Manchester. I have a lot of internet friends from there so it’s always a case of “if you are ever in Manchester…..” but the opportunity has never arisen, maybe it’s about time I planned something.
Now I wouldn’t visit Manchester JUST to shop, that would be silly. The Trafford Centre also hosts The Legoland Discovery Centre and The Sealife Centre with The Chill Factor-E indoor ski centre just across the road. It’s such a huge city full of things to do with some pretty amazing looking Museums but as Chelsea FC fans we will be steering clear of Old Trafford and The Etihad Stadium!
Now we just need to check out Hotels in Manchester and start organising our trip!
