Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
Manchester is a city of innovators, idea-makers, and international perspectives – the cradle of the 19th-century Industrial Revolution. It’s the city that gave the world its first railway line, the modern computer, and the suffragette movement. It’s also a place of incredible diversity, with the varied ethnic groups who have made Manchester their home bringing their own cultural contributions and culinary proclivities. Today, England’s so-called “northern capital” offers an impressive list of things to do and has used its centuries of forward-thinking to build a modern metropolis of exciting nightlife, incredible shopping, and cozy restaurants and pubs. But, even in its present era, Manchester’s storied past is strikingly evident, memories of its golden years dotted across the city. There’s the oldest library in the English-speaking world, a brick-built mass of 18th-century cotton mills, and the iconic Manchester Cathedral – all symbols of a city that helped build the modern world.
