Things to do in Oldham

While central Manchester is rich in activities and places to eat, shop or explore, there is so much more to the city than the most popular spots. Oldham, for example, is a great place to hop on a tram and explore some of the wider city, with plenty to see and do. Ok, so there may be fewer blockbuster attractions; but what you will find are good value days out with a particular emphasis on families. Here some of the best places to visit in Oldham for an enjoyable day out:
Gallery Oldham (Greaves Street, OL1 1AL)
Along with Oldham’s library, this free entry attraction has so much more waiting within. In particular, there is a great balance of old and new within the collections and a regularly changing schedule of exhibitions. Visitors can expect everything and anything from pre-Raphaelite art to natural history gems, while there is always something engaging for younger visitors too, along with a café. An unsung Oldham gem, we think. www.galleryoldham.org.uk
