Manchester is, of course, home to the world-famous soccer clubs Manchester United and Manchester City. Besides being a city of soccer, Manchester is a wonderful place to visit, also for non-soccer fans. Manchester is located in the heart of the second-most densely populated part of the United Kingdom. The city, including the suburbs, counts 2.6 million inhabitants and is especially known for its architecture, culture, music scene, university, and its scientific and technological output generated by companies and institutions. The city houses many offices of renowned international companies. After London and Edinburgh, it is the third-most visited city in the United Kingdom.
Allure of London
Manchester certainly has some of the allure of London. Here, you will find various theatres with well-known shows, music venues, exotic dining options, and Manchester’s own China Town. Also, do not forget to visit the shops, pubs and museums. A unique experience is a visit to the Granada Studios, the setting for many popular television programmes.
Famous buildings in Manchester
Manchester has many well-known, beautiful buildings. You can visit, for example, the more than 600-year-old Manchester Cathedral, the neo-Gothic John Rylands Library, or the Beetham Tower – the tallest building in Manchester.
