The place that gave us Coronation Street, Oasis and the Eccles Cake, there’s no where quite like Manchester (as long as you don’t mind a spot of rain).
As the sixth largest city in the UK, there’s a reason Manchester is regarded as the northern powerhouse. Over the last few years this thriving city has become one of the biggest employment hubs in the UK, with its Media City campus attracting big businesses such as BBC, ITV, Ericsson and Kellogg’s.
Manchester has always been recognised for its edgy and leftfield vibe thanks to a legendary music scene which spawned the likes of The Stone Roses, New Order, The Happy Mondays and many more. The city also boasts not one, but two world class football teams.
But there’s more to Manchester than music and football. There is no shortage of culture and entertainment on offer with a host of impressive museums, the bohemian bars and restaurants of the Northern Quarter, and West-End-worthy productions at the famous Lowry Theatre.
When it comes from getting from A to B, Manchester is also extremely accessible with an excellent transport network that includes bus, Metrolink (trams) and trains to take you all over the city and beyond. What’s more, the Peak District, Lake District and the coast are all within easy reach, meaning Manchester can offer you the best of all worlds.
