9 Father's Day Ideas In Manchester

07/06/2023

June means Father’s Day is on its way, and it’s fair to say that planning a special day for your dad can take a lot of thinking. 

You can only get so many car fresheners, slippers, or DIY kits for fathers every year. But Father’s Day doesn’t have to be a boring gift-giving event. 

Your dad deserves more than just a Father’s day gift card. From private events to larger experiences, take time to figure out ideas on how to make Father’s Day special this year in Manchester. 

Manchester Father’s Day Experiences

Treetop Adventure Golf 

Treat your dad - or maybe the whole family - to a jungle-themed mini golf course in Manchester for Father’s Day!

Adventure Golf fulfils the appetite for an adventure through indoor mini golf courses. Play for two courses for the price of one when you book before 1 pm.

From tropical trails to ancient pathways, Adventure Golf can guarantee a fun, competitive time. 

Craft Beer Tours 

Take a craft beer tour with your dad this month, and sample the best beer the city has to offer!

In this tour, you will visit a variety of microbreweries and craft beer venues to enjoy (at least) ten craft beers with a third of a pint each. Each session found in each venue is led by a resident expert, who can also lead visitors to the hidden gems of Manchester city centre. 

If you have a dad that loves beer, then this tour is the perfect choice! 

Cycling in Manchester 

Is your father active? Don’t worry, Manchester has lots of exciting experiences for those that love to move.

Take your dad cycling and witness the great architecture and natural spaces within and around the city. With scenic cycling routes available around Manchester and beyond, you can easily rent a bike and explore the area. 

Enjoy The Outdoors 

If cycling isn’t your or your dad’s style, then stepping foot in the vast natural parks within Greater Manchester is the best (and equally perfect) option for active trekkers.

Manchester is home to lots of green spaces, including Heaton Park, Sale Water Park, and Chorlton Water Park. The best part is that these areas are extremely easy to get to!  

Bask in the culture of football

Is your dad a football fan? If so, then Manchester’s colossal football scene is a sight to behold. Holding two massive football teams (Manchester United, and Manchester City)  as well as the National Football Museum, the city is always buzzing with sports fans.
