Manchester : General Information
One of the fastest growing and largest cities in England, Manchester has become the place to visit if you like to indulge yourself in the finer things of life. The city is also a transport hub with the airport receiving flights from all over the world making the city the gate to northern England.
In recent years, Manchester has managed to shake the common misconception that the city is an industrial wasteland. Old warehouses have been transformed into funky, new apartments and the old factory equipment is now housed in museums rather than scrap yards.
The fine examples of Victorian architecture have been restored to their former glory, creating the perfect urban backdrop for visitors to enjoy the fabulous shopping, eating, drinking and nightlife on offer.
