A far cry from the horrors of war is Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens, a 21-acre site in Didsbury with lush plant life and a fair amount of wildlife, too. There’s a fragrant heather garden, a romantic nature trail, tennis courts and an olde English teahouse that is perfect to shelter in during the somewhat inevitable rain showers. It’s open from 8AM until sunset for picnicking, frolics and getting back to nature. Jump on the No. 42 or 42A bus from the city centre. It’s one of the best Manchester things to do if you want to take in some of the beauty of the locale.
