Social Circle Days Out in Manchester and Cheshire

Welcome to Manchester's Premium Social and Activity Network
We all love Manchester but let's face it, there are so many other fantastic places around. I've had a wonderful time visiting cities such as Chester and York and it was a great way to get know some of the other members.

Would you like to go somewhere new for the day with some new local friends?

As well as days out in Manchester, many of you may enjoy getting out of the city every once in a while. There's nothing wrong with wanting to get out there and explore nature or what other local cities have to offer. When it comes to exploring the North of England, we're lucky to have so many fantastic options right on our doorstep. There's some stunning countryside, which is why we offer regular walking days to such areas as the Lakes or the Peaks District, where you can get some air into your lungs while taking a stroll with some new Manchester friends.


Fresh air is fine but how about some culture?

If you're more culturally inclined, you may wish to join us on our city days out, including historical destinations such as Chester or York. We are always open to suggestions from our members on any days out they would like us to consider. Other cities like Hull and Liverpool have each being recognised as a city of culture in recent years (Hull for the UK and Liverpool for Europe), thanks to their stunning array of museums and galleries.


What to expect on a Social Circle fun day out

Our Social Circle host will greet you at the meeting point (either at Manchester train station or at a car parking location, where car sharing is always offered). We have a set itinerary to ensure that we don't waste precious minutes when we're there while at the same time listening to your feedback along the way to ensure that we make you a part of the process.


So how does it work?

We know it’s a little unusual to turn up at an event knowing no one, so we don’t expect you to. Instead, we introduce you to the founders and then to the event host, who will to make sure you’re feeling excited and not too nervous.

Whether it’s that you're looking for more things to do in Manchester or its a lifelong ambition you're dying to fulfil, our Manchester activities have got you covered! Try us for Free.

Day Out
social circle testimonial from Peter

Peak District

Organising a night out with your mates can be hard enough at the best of times, never mind an entire day. The fact that that is taken out of your hands is what I like most about Social Circle. I saw a walking day to the Peak District, booked my place and that was all of the organising I had to do. Thanks for arranging, Social Circle.

Trip To York

I hadn't been on a proper day out in years and had forgotten how much fun it can be. I booked on to a trip to York, which was fantastic. We were having a great time from the moment we met at the train station up until the moment we came back. I definitely plan on attending more days out and can't wait for the next one.

Alton Towers With Social Circle

I didn't see myself going to Alton Towers at my age but I got talked into going and I'm so glad I did. There may have been a ride or two I ducked out of but I had so much fun on what I did go, the rapids especially, and have become very good friends with some of the others who came along. What a great event.


Types Of Event


For our walking days, we usually meet at Parrs Wood, where we car share, so there's no problem for any of you who don't drive. From there, we go to one of many walking destinations in the Peak District and the Lakes, among others.

Cultural days

There are some wonderful cities lying not far from this one, offering numerous cultural and historic sites. It's interesting to see the cultural differences that lie between Manchester and such cities as York and Chester.

Fun days

Of course, fun is essentially what Social Circle is all about, and is when lifelong friendships are formed. With days like Alton Towers on the calendar, you definitely have the opportunity to embrace your fun side.
