 Please Support banning Shisha Smoking in public places 


When everyone knows this:


 ” the average shisha-smoking session lasts about an hour and research by the World Health Organisation (WHO) reveals that 1 hour of shisha smoking can be as damaging as 100-200 cigarettes, perception that shisha smoking is not addictive because the water used in the pipe can absorb nicotine is incorrect since in reality only SOME of the nicotine is absorbed by the water so smokers are still exposed to enough nicotine to cause an addiction and so shisha is playing a role in encouraging people to take up cigarette smoking and fruit and herbal flavoured shisha still usually contain tobacco so again the perception that it is healthier is wrong. Even if you use tobacco-free shisha you are still at risk from the carbon monoxide and any carcinogenic toxins generated by the coal or charcoal used to burn the shisha. “


Why the Government doesn't ban shisha smoking in public or at least to regulate it, for now, to protect the public health and save NHS Resources

 Emergency Food Storage

  BREXIT BOX V2 small 56595 std

One of visitorsinmanchester.com friends contacted us to tell about the Brexit box advert shown above and asked us if they have to bring their food with them when they come to Manchester next summer. Also asked if his son, who is studying at Manchester University will be alright with his food supply and if he should send us food with him after his Easter holiday. We thanks him for his thought and offer to send us food and told him, that reminds us about the situation in England in the 70s when everyone used to bring a case full of their favourite food supply from their country, but now Manchester has shops sell food from all over the world. 



  In this website, we always try to simplify things, especially for our Manchester visitors and go straight to the point and we don’t shy from putting out frank opinions and touch things others don't to help everyone understand a situation and to our best ability.

Will Goldstan be the saviour of the locals from the influx of foreign investors that will dominate the two big cities Manchester and Liverpool and drive locals out of their cities as we have seen all over the world what tourism and open foreign investments policy have done to some cities and towns. The most obvious example is the two major towns in Santorini, Greece, Oia and Fira where the locals have driven out of their towns, for so many reasons and they sold their houses at prices at the time not enough now to stay in a hotel for a few weeks if they want to see their towns out of nostalgia.

If we think only of the present, we will lose the future. 


Manchester is one of the cites in England with one of the highest number of population and the youngest population in the country, which makes it in the very top contributor in tax revenue nationwide. Also, it is a city full of life, energy and all the talents of music, theatre, entertainment,  culture, inventions, all kind of sports and the best city in football. Besides, the town is close to plenty of places of interest that attract tourists to come to see and enjoy. With all these criteria and not to forget the excellent history, the universities and science influence Manchester has. The city has more potential than what is showing now and should be with fewer problems for the local people to mention the homelessness, lack of excellent services and facilities that we think it shouldn't lack. 
Note: We are not blaming anyone but this the situation now, whether we like it or not.

Liverpool is the other city to the west of Manchester which is as vibrant and attractive as Manchester to the tourists and has all the criteria Manchester has in addition to the access to the sea, and they both compliment each other, and they both have worked and connected to each other for a very long time. From the ship canal that took Manchester to the sea through Merseyside and the first passenger train in the world that joined Manchester and Liverpool. Both are now competing with each other to attract tourists, university students and selling properties to national and international investors and this comes with a price and disadvantage to the locals as always has been highlighted here and in the media and the newspapers. Apart from locals driven out their cities, the infrastructure may not expand enough and the roads and the streets not wide enough to accommodate all the new peoples when all the cranes come down. These big cities should be maintained and continue to provide the world with all what they have multiple talents of the people. They are also cities of heritages and should be listed cities as when buildings are listed and not to be touched without thinking and proper planning to be responsible to keep them as they are and not subject them to investments that offer short term gains that will change the cities forever and may spoil them if not destroy them if the authorities are not careful  !!!!

 Let's Have Your Opinion On Banning Shisha Smoking In Public Places, In One Click



Health, Safety and the Environment in Manchester  


Visitors will find the environment in Manchester is excellent with no extreme high temperatures or extreme cold but plenty of rain which makes it always fresh. Manchester has no heavy industry, which is not good for people want to work in this field but good for the visitors' environment. 

Manchester surrounded by countryside, and when you travel in any direction, it is not more than 15 to 20 minutes before you find yourself in the country although some routes are better than the others.

Let us try to make First Of May

Public Awareness Day Of The Danger Of Shisha Smoking In Public Places.


The other good thing about Manchester is the water, and the visitors will find it pleasant, and it is of outstanding quality, natural and rich in minerals as it is not purified or proceed to be drinkable water. Some of Manchester visitors will find out that they can drink water straight from the taps instead of the bottled water which they used to all their life. Manchester water supplied from the lakes in the Lake District north of Manchester, and that is why it is arguably good and better water quality than the one in other cities in England and taste better than other cities including the capital, London.

However, Manchester has two issues with the environment, which are like the one often seen in many big cities:

First, when one walk in town you pass areas where the freshness of Manchester disappears and the smell of the air fluctuates between the smell of wee and weed and one do not know which one to prefer. Although, most the people that we walked with when the subject brought up would prefer the latter. However, the police presence now is more visible to tackle the drugs problems in the city and probably breathing of the fresh air will cover the whole town again.

The second is the congestion in and around the city which is the aim of Manchester mayor now to solve it as this is a severe problem for the town and hope the mayor Mr Andy Burnham will manage to arrange to solve it soon as he is working hard to tackle it. 

From our recent experience of the congestion, we are mentioning two. The first was when we took visitors to Liverpool to spend the day there and when we came back it took us two hours and 45 minutes to drive from Albert docks to Oxford Road in Manchester city centre. The journey usually takes around an hour so in the hour and 45 to 2 hours we were polluting the environment between A602 and the city centre where the car was running all the time to move a few metres now and then. One of the visitors commented, what will happen when all these cranes come down, and the buildings occupied !!!! Also, one of the visitors was so fed up and decided to walk it after spending a good time in the car, and he got to the city before us.

The second was on a Saturday afternoon, we were meeting people in Home Bar and Restuarant, and they were travelling from Wilmslow, and it took them about 3 hours to get to us. They kept phoning to apologise and to update us of no much change of their location and being stuck in bad traffic, which got worse when they reached the Mancunian way.

No one knows when this problem to be solved, but if you have to travel by car, please make sure that you have a lot of fuel in the tank. We think it is terrible and awful for the environment this congestion and we hope the mayor will succeed to solve otherwise more, and more  people will be suffering and stuck in this situation especially when all the cranes come down as Manchester visitor said and the situation  will be worse, and Manchester will not be attractive to visitors or people work in it as reported in the Manchester Evening News . The newspaper that knows Manchester better than anyone else and we should listen to their views and their readers' views and consider them.

Manchester Evening News reported that people are turning down jobs for 50,000.00 salaries, which nearly twice the average national salary because of the congestion. 



People are 'turning down £50,000 jobs' to avoid having to drive into Manchester

                                       Full Manchester Evening News Article 


Also, we think traffic jam and continues congestion will cause so many problems to people which is clear and we are not going to elaborate on it but we invite anyone who can to send their input.


How safe is Manchester?

If you take the view of someone living in Manchester for a very long time, it's a safe city with a few exceptions because Manchester is not a Disney Land it is a real and big city that attracts all sort of people and from all walks of life. Some here in Manchester to steal and pickpocketing from Manchester visitors or new students and they are active mostly in holiday seasons and the beginning of the study year in the universities where they find a lot of preys and their journey and travel money would be worthwhile to spend. There are others more serious crimes in Manchester, you may read about but this is mostly not directly directed to visitors apart from competing may be to sell the visitors drugs to the drug users.

To be safe in Manchester or in any big city, don't attract criminals by 

Flashing money, jewellery and expensive items.

Walking in dark streets, especially alone.

Having your wallet or purse easily reachable to the gangs that targeting you as a tourist or newcomer and you still venerable as you looking around to find places of interest or to eat and you forget your belongings and sometimes not aware what happened to them till late. You must remember that you have to be lucky all the times not to have your belongings stolen and they only have to be lucky once. Don't make them lucky and spoil your holiday.


Food Safety

The last thing you want to happen to you when you get to your holiday distension is getting food poison when you buy takeaway or eat in a restaurant that have bad hygiene reputation because you new to the area and don't know the good places to eat and where, so before ordering your takeaway or go to restaurants to eat check the place hygiene reputation till you find your favourite places and know where to eat or order your food from . 

The hygiene ratings in Manchester are as follows. 

5 = Very Good.

4 = good.

3 = generally satisfactory.

2 = improvement necessary.

1 = major improvement necessary.

0 = urgent improvement necessary.



Find the hygiene ratings before you order by clicking below, then insert name and town of the business.
