Does Manchester have any tourist attractions? What's the best way to pass a pleasant day there?
Not having been there for 35 years I thought it would be a good idea to ask?
asked in geography

Wihtout knowing what your particular interests are it would be difficult to put together an itinerary that would suit you.
I lived in Manchester for 6 years back in the late 60s and early 70s and have only been back a few times since. Manchester Museum has a fine Egyptology department and you might find that interesting. There are a number of fine parks to the south of the city centre such as Platt Fields. The Whitworth Art Gallery would also warrant a visit:

And for some peace in beautiful surroundings a visit to the Fletcher-Moss alpine gardens is difficult to beat:

I'm sure other members will come along with some further suggestions.

Finish your day with a trip to either Curry Mile in Rusholme (10 min bus ride), or Chinatown in the city centre. Either of these will offer some rather good food at good prices.
