Manchester

3.6

Capital of the North

Unofficially dubbed the Capital of the North, Manchester is known for its influence on industry and music, as well as its world-renowned connection to sports. Also called Second City, this young, cutting-edge city is often seen as London's more manageable and friendlier younger sibling, with its multitude of laid-back shopping, cultural, and entertainment facilities. Though it once had a negative reputation dating back to its industrial past, the city now has a vibrant air, attracting thousands of permanent settlers each year, and drawing millions of tourists who use it as a base to explore northern England and North Wales. Manchester is in Greater Manchester. Plan your trip to Manchester and other United Kingdom destinations using our handy United Kingdom journey planner .
