Although the city itself is a sprawling urban metropolis it does lie within relatively easy reach of the wide open spaces of the Peak District, the wild Pennine moors and hills of Bronte Country and Lancashire's Pendle Witch Country, the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Bowland and of course the English Lake District (which can be reached conveniently via the M6 motorway).
Bronte related attractions in the city include Elizabeth Gaskell's house on Plymouth Grove. The novelist was Charlotte Bronte's friend and biographer, and Charlotte stayed at the house (which was also visited by Charles Dickens and John Ruskin).
