Once an industrial metropolis, Manchester has transformed itself into the cosmopolitan hub of Northern England. From the digital creativity of Media City to the tranquillity of Castlefield Locks, Manchester is a city of unique contrasts, rich in heritage but with an eye to the future.

With a wealth of museums and galleries, a varied nightlife, plenty of theatres, music and comedy venues, two of England’s most celebrated football clubs, and the largest indoor skiing and snowboarding slope in the UK, the options of things to do are almost endless.

The city offers a comprehensive assortment of cuisines if you’re looking for a bite to eat, as well as hosting an acclaimed food and drink festival.
