    Default Two days in Manchester.

    I have two days in the Manchester area coming up and I would like suggestions on what there is to see and do in the locality. I've been to the War Museum and also to U-534 on Merseyside. I have no interest in going to Old Trafford so please don't suggest that! Anything else would be useful!

    Go to the Hilton on Deansgate and have a cocktail in Cloud 23 bar in the evening and look at the view!

    The museum of Science & Industry is great, and there is an exhibition of Harley-Davidson motorcycles old and new, customised and their part in culture over the years. That's on 'til the 11th September, but costs 8 per adult or 20 for a family. The museum itself is free.

    That's exactly what it was like when I met Nick earlier this year Ned. Obviously you've been there too?
