Step into a city world-famous for its music, cultural and sporting heritage. Experience atmospheric old pubs and the soaring architecture of John Ryland’s Library, then cruise along the grand Victorian waterways of Manchester’s industrial past and let the city win you over with its charm.
Manchester is a bustling northern metropolis crammed with world-class museums and attractions. Here you’ll find the world’s first urban heritage park, testimony to the city’s past as a major industrial centre and now a leafy district full of waterside pubs and historic buildings. Football is practically a religion in Manchester, and the friendly rivalry between Manchester’s two Premier League teams adds an electric tension to football games here. If music is more your thing, remember this is the home of the Smiths, the Stone Roses and Joy Division, and you’ll find plenty of live music of all kinds on offer.
