Ask any Mancunian and they’ll tell you there’s nothing unofficial about the designation of Manchester as “the uncrowned capital of the North”. It’s a city bursting with character, diversity and energy – and a place where anything can happen.
Manchester city centre is jam-packed with eclectic bars, eateries and pubs – just take your pick. Of course, don’t forget about the music; there are gigs aplenty and, in the city that gave the world Oasis’ Liam and Noel Gallagher, you’d be wise to pay attention to the up-and-comers.
Manchester is known throughout the world as the birthplace of the industrial revolution and it’s a legacy that lives on. The commercial scene is thriving, with startups, bankers, entrepreneurs and creatives all networking to drive business in the bustling northern city.
There is no better base from which to explore Manchester than smack bang in the centre of the city. You’ll be within a stone’s throw of Manchester’s main sights: Manchester Cathedral, the Etihad Stadium and, of course, Old Trafford, the home stadium of Premier League football team, Manchester United. See Manchester’s iconic landmarks: the National Football Museum, Bridgewater Hall and the MEN Arena.
It’s not all tourist attractions though Manchester is also renowned for its buzzing nightlife and high-end gastronomy, so you’ll always find a restaurant, cafe or bar in which to while away the hours.
