A breathtaking concoction of sights, sounds and smells, there’s so much to explore with holidays to Marrakech. From the excitement of traditional souks and squares to wonderful museums and galleries, experience the best of the ‘Red City’ with one of our holidays to Marrakech from Manchester.
There’s only really one place to start when you want to start uncovering the magic of Marrakech, and that’s at main square Jemaa el Fna. A huge, seething mass of snake charmers, acrobats and story tellers, browse the endless array of traditional stalls as you seek out one-off buys to take home with you.
If you need a few moments of peace and quiet after the chaos of Jemaa el Fna, then head to one of the city’s green spaces, such as the centuries-old Menara gardens. Get even further away from it all with a trip out of Marrakech into the desert or to the Atlas Mountains, where you can even go skiing over winter.
Back in the city, pay a visit to fantastic museums such as the Marrakech Museum in the Dar Menebhi Palace, the Dar Si Said Museum to the north of the Bahia Palace, or the Museum of Islamic Art in the Marjorelle Gardens. Marrakech is also famous for its vast array of mosques and religious buildings, which include the Koutoubia Mosque, Ben Youssef Mosque and Mouassine Mosque.
Whether you’re exploring majestic old palaces or tasting delicious street food in one of the city’s squares, don’t miss out on our Manchester to Marrakech holidays.
