Banks and Currency Exchange
The United Kingdom's currency is Pounds Sterling. Credit and debit cards are generally accepted in restaurants and shops.
Climate and Clothing
In August, the weather in Manchester is quite pleasant with temperatures ranging from the mid-teens to the low twenties. However, as British weather is unpredictable, it is advisable to bring a sweater and a light raincoat or umbrella.
