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.
Manchester Airport is one of the busiest and largest airports in Europe. The airport is located in the south of Manchester, in the North West of England and is an excellent gateway to the north of the United Kingdom.
The Universities Corridor is in the south of Manchester. It covers the corridor around the Oxford Road and the Wilmslow Road, from the A57 south down through Rusholme to Fallowfield and the areas immediately either side bounded by the A34 and A5103.
