Has anyone slept at Manchester airport? My plane arrives 2230 and train leaves at 0615, so seven hours to kill. Any advice on quiet corners inside the airport? Sleeping bag on floor is my idea, but not in the way of anyone, ie queues that start at 0400 and you suddenly find yourself in the check-in for Easyjet and are being trampled upon!
Someone suggested to put my tent up in the grounds of the airport on some grass, not a bad idea (Stansted airport has excellent wild camp spots, one just 5 mins from the terminal). Has anyone here done that at Manchester airport, wild camping in the grounds - out of sight so that I can get some horizontal zzz....
Off to the Lake District for some 'real' wild camping for 6 days....
You'll have to go some distance to "wild camp" near Manchester Airport without attracting serious attention!
Its a big airport - much bigger than Stansted - with several terminals, so I suggest you identify a quiet corner inside the terminal building when you get there. Its not like you'll be the only one!
So it's perfectly alright for terrorists to sleep inside the airport, but not outside in their Akto? What IS this country coming to??!!

Does not look too bad for camping in the bushes, in front of the airport over ringway road,if not a little noisey.
I know somebody who wildcamped at a seaport/ferry terminal ...
The ferry terminal site is a classic and well-regarded spot
What date are you arriving?
There are plenty of people on here who could pick you up and then see you on your way.
I see people sleeping in airports all the time, just make sure your valuables are stashed away.
I was in Charles De Gaulle Airport on Monday and saw someone asleep in a photo booth.
