Your top 10 days out in Manchester – #RSH Guides

Posted on

In our weekly competition, 10 train-goers win £10’s worth of loyalty points by tweeting their tips about a set destination to #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you to tweet us with your favourite days out in Manchester.

Read on for this week’s winning tips and to find out where to go and what to do when you’re in Manchester. And don’t forget to share your tips with us via Twitter – you could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays or car hire.

@tijeno made it into our winners’ list this week with a top Twitter tip to try the Museum of Science and Industry where you’ll find a 4D cinema, a Steam School and exhibits chronicling Manchester’s past as an industrial power-house. What’s more, as this top-notch museum is housed in Liverpool Road Station, the world’s oldest railway station, it’s a must-visit for train fans too.

@rx00xEMMAx00x picked up those loyalty points too with her great tip to sample the city’s shopping scene, stopping by the Red Hot Buffet for lunch. With salads, seafood, carvery fayre, sushi and more on the menu, you’ll definitely be fuelled to shop until you drop.

@AngelaDickson also won those loyalty points for her Twitter tip to head to the Chill Factore where you can learn to ski and snowboard on the UK’s longest and widest indoor slopes. You can also sledge, climb and air board here too. And it’s all on real snow.

@ryath89 picked up those prize points too with a winning tweet to try the Museum of Science and Industry – its second entry on our top 10. @Ryath89 says it’s a must-see as it’s free to visit, keeps the kids entertained and dishes-up great grub.

@LTsteamfan chugged into this week’s top 10 with a great Twitter tip to take the Metro to Bury and hop on board a restored heritage steam or diesel train on a 12-mile trip over the West Pennine Moors at the East Lancashire Railway. The Railway will be running special events like Rail Ale trips and 40s weekends – so check their website to see what’s on when you’re next in Manchester.

@ukheather also won those loyalty points with a Twitter reminder to head to the Trafford Centre – the sporting ground of Manchester’s dapper footballers and their glamorous wives and girlfriends.

@muskrat16 made it into this week’s picks too with a top tweet to get physical at Heaton Park – where you can take a guided walk, go orienteering and even row a boat.

@itsjustste railroaded his way into our top ten this week with a Twitter tip to treat yourself to a Nando’s at the Arndale Centre – the UK’s largest city shopping centre. And with hundreds of shops to pop into, you’ll definitely be in need of lunch or dinner.

@northern_lauren steamed into this week’s top 10 with her Twitter suggestion directing us to The Hidden Gem Church, the John Rydland Library, Manchester Town Hall and Manchester Cathedral for a glimpse into Manchester’s history and architecture.

@donzersdiatribe pulled in the last of this week’s prize points with a great tip to visit Ordsall Hall – a lovely, recently renovated stately home that’s said to be haunted by the ghost of ‘the white lady’ – who you can find tweeting too.

Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks for all of your great Manchester day out recommendations! And if you didn’t win this week, don’t worry – we’ll be giving you another chance to win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets next week too.

Don’t forget to tweet your tips to #RSH Guides next week, so you can be in with the chance of winning some loyalty points.
