Sitting in the southwest corner of British Columbia, visit a city renowned for its stunning natural beauty with one of our holidays to Vancouver. As well as the picture-perfect scenery and nature-based attractions, there’s loads of great culture to explore on holidays to Vancouver from Manchester.
One of the city’s most popular attractions is the beautiful Stanley Park, which sits at the tip of Vancouver’s downtown peninsula. A brilliant feature that’s fortunately been retained as the city’s grown, there are miles of walking and cycling trails, including the popular Seawall trail, which runs right by the water of the Burrard Inlet.
If you want to get out onto the waves, take a boat trip during whale watching season, which runs from March to October. You’ll have the chance to see migrating humpback, grey and minke whales, as well as the resident orcas as you sail across the waters surrounding Vancouver Island. Dolphins, sea lions and otters are also common, making this the perfect trip for nature-lovers.
If you consider yourself a bit of a foodie, Vancouver has a reputation as one of the best, if not the best, culinary cities in Canada. From fresh seafood where the wild salmon is a real specialty, to some of the best Asian food in North America, every taste is catered for in restaurants across the city.
When it’s time for some culture, head to spots such as the Museum of Anthropology, the Vancouver Art Gallery, or the Contemporary Art Gallery. If you love sports then check out the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, or take the kids to Telus World of Science for some hands-on fun.
