Boxing Day Sales, Arndale in Manchester (and UK-wide)
The shops and foodcourt open before sunrise at 7am on Boxing Day, so if you’re lucky enough to have some pennies rattling in your pocket, head to the Arndale to bag yourself a bargain!
And if you’re looking for an excuse, then shopping definitely includes walking. And that’s technically exercise…

The Arndale Shopping Centre just off Exchange Square, is located at Manchester M4 1AZ
