The next morning we headed into Manchester. We visited the Urbis Centre, the Manchester wheel (a big Ferris wheel) and walked through the Centre. Unfortunately the Modern Art museum was closed that day but we also headed out to see Old Trafford (Manchester United’s home ground) on the way out of town we travelled alongside the Lakes District to make it to a lovely camping spot in Carlisle for the night.
We headed into Chester the next morning to have a look at this walled city that had been recommended to us by various people. It was a lovely town with plenty of old buildings and quaint shops to look at. We strolled past the excavation of an old Roman Arena and then headed on to Liverpool for the afternoon. Liverpool was a little under whelming. We were caught in an hour long traffic jam on the way in and were left with little time to wander around the city. We couldn't do any of the Beatles stuff as you need to book about a week in advance which we didn’t know until we got there. That night we headed up into the Peake district and spent the night in a caravan park in the area.
