Things to do near Wythenshawe, Manchester

One of the greenest areas in the city, the area has 12 parks and some huge woodland areas to explore. Home to Manchester Airport and Wythenshawe Hospital, there are many things to do near Wythenshawe, Manchester.

With plenty of great activities to keep the youngsters occupied, Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park is close by. Take the best seat in the house to watch the planes take off and land, explore the historic grounded aircraft or run off some energy on the children’s playground.

Additionally, Wythenshawe Forum offers a packed entertainment programme – from comedy and music to boxing and wrestling – there’s also a brilliant weekly family roller disco. Skate the night away to classic tunes and disco lights.

For hours of outdoor exploring and fresh air, head to the vast Wythenshawe Park.  Offering sporting facilities, a community farm and a horticultural centre, the park is a brilliant day out for all ages.
