Manchester

Manchester, capital of the North

With a strong ambition and proud of its many assets, Manchester is - by its history and its geography - the second city of England (before Birmingham). But if you ask a Mancunian what he thinks to be second, he will surely answer you: "I don't know, ask a Londoner".

Beyond this spirit of bluster, the crownless capital of the North fully deserves its title. Rich in history and culture, it offers countless museums and galleries. It’s a city where you don’t get bored: come and dine, drink, dance and get carried away in a whirlwind of hedonism, one of Manchester’s most treasured features.. 

MUST-SEE

Museum of Science & industry :

Manchester’s rich industrial heritage is honored in this huge, exciting museum housed in the old Liverpool Street train station. The history of the city and the Industrial Revolution are traced through a large collection of steam engines, locomotives and old machines.

HISTORY OF THE CITY

Manchester's history has seen this city pass from a small Roman fort to one of the most important industrial cities in the United Kingdom and even in the world. The city of Manchester began to grow at an astonishing speed in the 19th century, thanks to the strong development of the textile industry during the industrial revolution.

Manchester saw the birth of the first railway station to transport passengers, as well as other scientific achievements. But in the middle of the 20th century the industrial economy of the city began to decline, which caused important social problems. The city still remains today a major post-industrial city in the United Kingdom, following various investments.
