Bustling Manchester lies in the northwest of England, and comprises the
third largest metropolitan area in the country. In the distance rise the
Pennine Hills, widely considered to be one of the most scenic natural areas
of the U.K.
Known for its dominance during Britain’s Industrial Revolution, the
accelerated growth of Manchester’s textile manufacturing transformed the
ancient medieval town into one of the world’s commercial powerhouses of the
19th century. Today, Mancunians remain fiercely proud of Manchester’s
economic successes and thriving cultural scene.
Many of Manchester’s most impressive landmarks pay tribute to its
cotton-milling past and the Victorian wealth this generated. One such
building is the impressive Manchester Town Hall in central Albert Square.
The square itself features monuments to Prince Albert and local notables,
so give yourself plenty of time to explore here, too. Mixed in with the
architecture of other centuries, Manchester’s many exciting skyscrapers dot
the skyline, including Beetham Tower and One Angel Square.
Have a music fan in your travel party? Manchester is the birthplace of
bands such as Oasis and the Smiths. Pay homage and catch a show at the
always-rollicking Manchester Arena, host to some of the most lavish
entertainment spectacles in the world. High-end performing arts find their
curtain calls at the Manchester Opera House, while testaments to the city’s
technological history are held at the Museum of Science and Industry.
Retail mavens will find a home away from home in Manchester’s mix of large
shopping centers, local markets, and independent boutiques. Altrincham
Charter Market has been luring shoppers to its varied stalls since 1290,
while the quirky Northern Quarter offers goods on the more modern end of
the spectrum. For big name brands, look no further than The Arndale Center,
one of Europe’s largest and most popular shopping destinations.
Mancunians take their soccer (or football, as they call it) very, very
seriously, and with two world-class teams bringing fans to the stadiums in
droves, you’ll love feeling like a local for the day. The Manchester City
team holds court at the City of Manchester Stadium, while Manchester United
hosts games at Old Trafford.
A major hub for commerce and tourism alike, Manchester has extensive
transportation options. Manchester Airport flies to destinations across the
U.K. and abroad, and the city is crisscrossed with a convenient Metrolink
light rail system. The two major train stations, Piccadilly and Victoria,
provide a gateway to all major stops. In fact, the railway between
Manchester and Liverpool was the first passenger railway in the world.
