There's lots to do and see in Manchester, but it's a quick one-hour trip (or less) to get to Liverpool -- a vibrant city I highly recommend visiting too if you've got the time.
I took a train from Manchester to Liverpool for a day trip and walked around the city for about 4 hours. Got to see the bar where Beatles originated.
A really exciting and vibrant city, Liverpool has some great bars and restaurants to entertain younger visitors. However there is plenty to do for history buffs as well with some fantastic museums such as the World Museum and The Museum of Liverpool in the impressively designed waterfront building. Two amazing cathedrals round out the sights in this dynamic city.
