A scenic spot outside Manchester

While this Tameside market town has much to offer in its own right, it also enjoys a fantastic location, just seven miles to the east of central Manchester. Head into town on the train in minutes to check out a compendium of culture, including the Museum of Science and Industry, Palace Theatre, Old Trafford football and cricket stadiums and so much more.

Take it all in, from the Portland Basin

The Ashton canal provides the perfect way to get to know the local area, and families are able to take a 45-minute cruise up the canal - just �4 for adults, or �2 for kids. For deeper exploration, the Portland Basin Museum sits on its banks and offers a lively and interactive family-friendly museum. Take a trip back and experience life as it was when the building was a working mill - a fun and accessible slice of history for the little ones.

Take a time out at Park Bridge Industrial Hamlet

If you're in need of some downtime and green space, look no further than this delightful, quiet and leafy walk alongside a former railway track. With activities like willow weaving and pond dipping, it's a popular outdoor space just north of Ashton. Looking for accommodation in Ashton-under-Lyne?
