I managed to squeeze in a visit to IWM North in Manchester. A bit disappointing to be honest.

    Considering the size of the place, there are not that many exhibits and some poor lighting makes it difficult to read some of the letters from people who’ve served in the various conflicts on display.

    Lots of militaria, but apart from the Mathilda, T-55 and the Harrier, not that much in the way of armour or military hardware.

    I thought the concentration camp display was quite stunning and brought home the inhumanity of the treatment given to the internees.

    Also took in the LS Lowry gallery, which is just across the bridge within walking distance and well worth a visit.
