Today’s Manchester is a far cry from the harsh industrial city of decades past that many still picture. Massive urban redevelopment projects have given the city a new face and reinvigorated its districts, making them cool, cultured and characterful enough to rival even the most hipster of neighbourhoods. ‘The Capital of the North’ is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, with a rich musical history, a passion for sports, plenty of cultural offerings and personality to spare, and visitors will find much to keep them occupied, entertained and even fascinated among the refurbished and repurposed industrial buildings and pleasant canals.
