Day 2

This morning we travelled to Manchester - our first stop was the Museum of Science and Industry. We had a look around the exhibitions, which mostly focused on the industrial history of Manchester. One of the most exciting parts of the museum was the 'Space and Air Centre'. The dare-devils amongst us tried the flight simulators - they weren't for the faint hearted!
 
After lunch, and a quick visit to the gift shop, we travelled across Manchester to the Etihad Stadium  (home of Manchester City) for our tour. We were able to visit both the home and away dressing rooms, the press conference room and the fancy VIP areas ( which apparently cost £16,000 for a season ticket). Unfortunately, we weren't able to go on the pitch or in the dug outs as the stadium was being set up ready for Taylor Swift's concerts at the weekend. 
 
Dinner was a Chinese buffet - apparently some of us managed to polish off 15 plates of food!
