Manchester is a vibrant, post-industrial gem at the heart of North West England. The city formerly known as 'Cottonopolis' has hung up its clogs and, thanks to successive regeneration projects, is now a major centre for culture and commerce; seen by many as the 'capital' of the north of England and the 'second city' of the United Kingdom.
