Often considered England’s second city, the greater Manchester region is home to some three million people. Fiercely proud of their city, Mancunians have plenty to be proud of. Once one of the world’s most important cities, today it continues to impress those who get a RV rental in  Manchester because of its range of attractions.

Alive with highly-rated restaurants, bars, and nightlife, the city center is only the start of what those visiting Manchester can experience. Beyond the hum of this metropolis, visitors will find the beauty of the Irish Sea coast, and the untouched wildernesses of the West Pennine Moors and Peak District National Park only short distances away.

Getting to Manchester

Manchester is easy to reach with your RV rental by road from north, south, east, and west, with the UK’s freeway network meeting the M60 ring road on the outskirts of the city. London can be reached in as little as four hours, while Liverpool is less than an hour away along the M62 freeway.

Manchester airport has flights to and from more worldwide destinations than any other UK airport. It’s, therefore, possible to reach Europe, North America, the Middle East, and even Asia on direct flights operated by the likes of British Airways, EasyJet, and Jet2.

Manchester Piccadilly is the city’s main railway terminal, alongside Manchester Victoria. Trains crisscross the country, with destinations including Edinburgh, York and Cardiff. The journey to London takes just two hours and there are multiple departures each day.

Parking in Manchester

Finding parking for your RV rental in Manchester center can be difficult, with many residents choosing instead to park on the edge of the center and walk-in. Red Bank car park on Faber Street offers parking about ten minutes away for £2.50 per day. Alternatively, Rochdale Road offers parking for roughly £3 per day. By contrast, you’ll be looking at up to £4 per hour further towards the heart of the city if you opt to make use of on-street parking bays. The NCP car park at Piccadilly Gardens offers parking starting at £6 for 12 hours, although the maximum height of vehicles is limited to 2.1 meters.

  • Rossendale Holiday Cottages: Located in the valley of the same name, this site has a mix of RV spots and camping pods. Pitches start at £25 per night.
  • The Little Mill Inn: Booking is essential for the handful of RV spots found in the heart of the Peak District. Prices begin at just £5 per night because electrical hook-ups are not available.

The best time to rent a RV in Manchester

Weather graph for average temperatures in Manchester
Average temperatures in Manchester per month

Manchester is arguably one of the trendiest cities in England. Massive investment has made it a magnet for anyone who enjoys, culture, history, and the great outdoors. And despite its reputation for being cold and wet, Manchester is drier than most parts of the UK. What rain does fall is spread relatively evenly across the year, and never seriously impacts the enjoyment of the Manchester Day celebrations or any other annual events.

The city enjoys a very typical British climate of cool winters and warm, but not hot summers. The average daytime winter temperature is 5 °C, but with a hat and scarf, it’s still possible to enjoy all the city has to offer, including one of the largest Christmas markets in Europe.

Summer can be said to have made its presence felt in Manchester from the beginning of June, and spreads its warmth right through until the end of September. Between June and September, temperatures average 15 °C, with the hottest parts of the day hitting 20 °C.

Autumn is the definition of changeable, although Guy Fawkes Night (Bonfire Night) adds plenty of color and warmth. Likewise, spring offers some surprisingly warm days, allowing people to consider trips to the city’s parks for picnics once again.

RV rental in Manchester is, therefore, a reasonable proposition at any time of year. With this in mind, spring probably gives visitors the best chance of combining good weather with low rental prices. Prices only begin to rise towards the end of June, when schools end for the summer, and don’t fall again until students return in September.
