As London's brother in the North West, Manchester is one of England's larger cities, home to the biggest airport outside of the capital and a place of great passion. Arguably its best known asset is the world-famous sporting team, Manchester United. The city also hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2002. Naturally, sport is very much a part of the city - but it's not the only thing. Manchester is also a significant hub for art and music with a number of galleries and a flourishing music scene that has produced the likes of Oasis, Joy Division and The Smiths.
A big part of Manchester's cosmopolitan appeal stems from its incredibly diverse population. Not only does the city's population range in ethnicities, but Manchester is also home to a number of university students and a large gay community. As such the city is regarded to be incredibly open minded, welcoming and is home to a dynamic nightlife and lively festivals including Manchester Pride.
But it hasn't always been the vibrant and modern city it is today. Manchester has a rich heritage dating back to Roman times. The city also played a significant part in the industrial revolution and for much of its history was very much an industrial town. As a result, Manchester's historic architecture and museums are considered great highlights of the city.
