Great views of Manchester
The Wheel of Manchester is a bit smaller than the more famous London Eye but, like its big sister, it is composed of closed cabins so you can take a trip at any time. The best time to go is at night during the holidays when the city is lit up. This Ferris wheel is located in the center of Manchester, close to Piccadilly Garden. Costs at the time we went were £5 for English students, £6.50 for adults and £4.50 for children (3 to 12 years). For that price, you can make four revolutions which take about 10 minutes each. And, as you wait in the queue, employees will take photos of you which you can buy at the end of the trip if you have the cash.
