Veiw the the fountains on City Park and pop in to see the latest exhibition at the Impressions Gallery or head towards the National Science and Media Museum, this northern outpost of the Science Museum is packed with interactive exhibits, exciting exhibitions and wonderful cinema.

You’ll find cafes, coffee shops, pubs and bars across the city, perfect to relax and plan your next adventures and of course plenty of dining options from Italian favourites and fantastic curry to traditional pub classics.

If you’re staying into the evening, check the listings, the Alhambra Theatre is regarded as the North's premier touring venue, while for music and comedy St George’s Hall is the place to be. There are also plenty of smaller venues across the city with regular live music and evening entertainment.
