Father’s Day will soon be here and we’re already thinking about what we can get our Dad’s to celebrate (and what will get here in time!). If you’re wondering how you can enjoy the weekend with your family, then you’re in luck - we’ve put together some fab and fun ideas for you to treat your Dad in Manchester this summer. Which one is your favourite?
For the foodie families (we all know one!), here are some great options for you to check out.
Situated in Deansgate and offering up an incredible steak and wine menu with all the extras, Hawksmoor are also going the extra mile for Father’s Day this year. Alongside the mouth-watering menu and wide range of drinks, they also have presents up for grabs for Father’s Day, including gift cards and secret recipes to the perfect seared steak. Nom.
The perfect option for any football fans - not only are you sitting for a 2-course meal, but there will also be a screening of Spain vs Poland, an overnight stay, afternoon tea, and an unbeatable Q+A with Wes Brown, former England team defender. We’ve already got our tickets booked for this one!
A family-run Greek tapas restaurant, Dimitris is a great place for a visit any time of year, but especially for Father’s Day. With stunning platters up for grabs perfect for sharing, they can cater to fish eaters, meat eaters, and veggies – we’re drooling at the thought of falafel and tzatziki this very second.
If you prefer to have an activity planned for the day instead of a meal, we’ve got you covered, don’t you worry.
Another winner for any football fans, a behind-the scenes tour available for both Man United and Man City supporters at their respective stadiums makes for a great day out. Follow a guide around the stadium who will show you the pre-match preparation and post-media obligations, along with every stage in-between.
For those after something more hands-on, axe throwing at Whistle Punks is a fun way to spend the day and work out some frustrations – and to be able to put it to the test of who really is the strongest one in the family!
A venture through the industrial heart of Northern England with historical stops along the way, including Stephenson’s Railway Bridge. This is a good idea for any history buffs – or for anyone whose Dad has a tendency of telling long, historical stories – this could be the perfect time to get your own back.
If you’ve been searching google hopelessly for present inspo, look no further – we’ve only gone and done it for you.
A local business with all genres of vinyl, these are perfect for any music-lovers. Find a record from a special year, or maybe something from their favourite band, and you’re sure to win the spot of best present (and favourite child!).
With a range of options from bike, car, and kart racing, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the Three Sisters Circuit. With gift cards available, this is a fun option for those who want something more active but haven’t got a date in mind just yet.
How are you celebrating Father’s Day this year? We’d love to hear about your plans and what you get up to – as ever, let us know on our socials, and give your dad a hug from us!
