Wheel of Manchester


5 reviews of Wheel of Manchester

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.

In Manchester powerhouse, it is surprising to find a Ferris wheel. It is very reminiscent of London Eye, London's spectacular building, and it also allows you to see the city from a different perspective: from the air. The funny thing is that it is located in a strange place for an "attraction" of this type, almost embedded in a triangle between buildings, and next to two of the most important buildings of the city: The Ubis and Printworks. You can visit it either during the day or at night, if you want to see the city in two different ways, awake or asleep.
