There's nothing we like more on a drab day, than cuddling up in a cosy little boozer. So hows about it? One of Manchester's plushest pubs and a dapper retreat from the dastardly weather outside, The Beagle in Chorlton will keep your entertained for hours with their top notch selection of cask ales, crafty kegs and charming British atmosphere. And don't leave the darn dog outside, he's more than welcome in.

Even if the rain is washing away all the darling flowers outside, there's one dapper joint in the city where the botanical and the whimsical reigns supreme all day long. Bringing the outside in with their own indoor planters, Richmond Tea Rooms is vintage at its finest. From cocktails and afternoon tea to letting your eyes have a gander across all of their trinkets, you'll be entertained until the blue sky comes in to show.
