Our guide to

Museums & Heritage

We do like a good museum, from those old-fashioned slightly dusty numbers (who shall remain nameless) to the hipper variety, such as The Manchester Museum, which of all UK museums arguably does the best job in combining a historic collection with 21st century details. The North is studded with museum gems, though, from the gargantuan World Museum in Liverpool to the small but perfectly-formed Police Museum in Manchester. Read our picks of the best here.
