Social Circle Activities in Manchester and Cheshire

Welcome to Manchester's Premium Social and Activity Network
HOME CATEGORIES Activities

Do you want to get active in Manchester?

We have a diverse range of active things to do in Manchester to ensure that the more restless among you always have something to look forward to. Most of us enjoy going out for a drink or a meal and other social events, but sometimes it's great to exert yourself and get involved in activities that get your adrenalin going.

If you’re looking for activities in Manchester to take part in as a group, Social Circle is here to help by providing you with some of the best activities around. Whether it’s a taster indoor skiing session at Chill Factore or rock climbing at Manchester Climbing Centre, there isn’t much that we aren’t willing to try. We even have the odd game of ping pong at some of the quirkier bars in the city. So the next time you’re looking for some fun Manchester activities, explore our events calendar; there’s bound to be something for you.

Looking for activity friends in Manchester?

One of the hardest things about achieving the kind of active lifestyle you want is finding friends in Mancheester to join you. Your existing friends might be content with sitting in the pub or in the comfort of their own home every night, but where does that leave you?

Social Circle introduces you to like-minded people on activities you enjoy. Whether it's indoor Rock climbing, abseiling, or zip lining at a Go Ape venue, we have something to get your heart racing while enjoying an exciting time having fun and meeting new people.

How about activity trips in the UK?

Of course, active means different things to different people. It may be that you enjoy a walking weekend or simply an afternoon's walk in the country. For others, you may be seeking something more extreme. Due to the nature of some of our events, some take place elsewhere in the UK, such as abseiling in Wales and caving in the Yorkshire Dales.

We even have the occasional active trip abroad such as a walking weekend in Poland or a skiing holiday in Bulgaria.

Whether it’s something you’re keen to have a go at or a lifelong ambition you're dying to fulfil, our Manchester activities have got you covered!

New Friends In Manchester

The friends I've known for years have always been up for a night out on the town on a weekend but when it came to anything more active, I had no-one in my group of friends to join me. Since I joined Social Circle, I've enjoyed numerous activities and as most of my friends had moved away, it was great to meet some new friends in Manchester in the process.

Renewed Sense Of Energy

I used to be really active but had become lazy in recent years. Social Circle has really shaken me up and was just the right thing at the right time. Not only are my weekends so much more fun but I have a renewed sense of energy throughout the week. My life has definitely changed for the better. Thanks Social Circle!

Go Ape and Abseiling

I love exploring my more active side and Social Circle enables me to do just that. Since joining, I've attended such events as Go Ape and abseiling and have had such an amazing time. The best thing about it though is having fun with the people I have met here. It turns out that there are other activity nuts like me after all :)

Types Of Event

Biking

Our cycle rides, usually from Didsbury, are a great way to get fit and see some stunning sights along the way. Have fun while burning off those calories from the weekend :)

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing has been on our events calendar for years. It remains a popular activity for those who want the practice for outdoor climbing, enjoy getting fit, or simply love climbing.

Indoor Skydiving

Continuing the theme of traditionally outdoors activities indoors, indoor skydiving is a seriously fun activity. Flying around indoors is an adventure, indeed.
