    Things to do and see!

    Ok Easter and the Summer holidays are next so am thinking that we could all find some fun things to do and see near us, they don't have to just be local though, but anywhere that everyone can access whether by walking, car or public transport.

    So lets have some fun finding some great things to do, I am sure as we have members all over that there will be lots of things for us to find.

    Ok as this is my home town and is accessible to me am going to find some things for Manchester.

    Museum of Science and Industry
    Manchester Art Gallery
    Peoples history museum
    Manchester Museum
    The Lowry Centre
    Imperial war museum north
    Heaton park
    National football museum
    Whitworth Gallery
    Transport museum
    Cornerhouse
    Manchester Cathedral
    Central library
    John Rylands Library
    The last two are amazing buildings

    Transport in and around Manchester is really good and is more advisable than driving as apart from horendous traffice parking is expensive

    There is loads to do here. I'm not sure if you've heard of the Wild Atlantic Way? But it's an idea to sell the West coast of Ireland as a tourist trail. From Donegal to Cork there is a road network that brings you close to the Atlantic while discovering the little towns and villages along the way. So I think I'll start with that; -
    The Wild Atlantic Way
    The Burren
    Coole park
    The Alliwee caves
    The Burren Sanctuary
    The Promenade in Killkey
    Surfing On the Beach in Kilkee
    Actually surfing on most of the beaches in the West.
    Jumping off the diving tower in Salthill
    Walking along the promenade in Salthill
    Grabbing teddies in Seapoint
    Spending the day in Clifden
    The lovely drive out to Clifden
    Spiddeal and the surrounding area
    The Gealtach
    Fish and Chips from McDonnagh's
    The drive from Clifden to Westport
    Westport house and gardens
    Yeats County of Sligo
    And more stuff up in Donegal that I don't know about.
    Unfortunately I haven't taken the Wild Atlantic way yet but it is wonderful and changes every time you see it.
    I hope this helps others.

    I need new glasses.
    i thought that said things to do and steal!

    Cant see anything for Surrey and Guildford but i am sure there will be something on.

    A popsicle stick makes a great bookmark. But eat the popsicle first. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    PF google things to do in Surrey and Guildford and you will be surprised what is on, then make a list of the places here in this thread. We are making these lists for the areas we live in.
