Manchester is a metropolitan borough within Greater Manchester and is key to England’s cultural backdrop. The city is located in the north-west of England and is characterised by its sporting associations, culture and music scenes. Looking south, Manchester is bordered by the Cheshire Plain and by the Pennines to the north-east and since the turn of the 19th century it has continued to thrive as one of the most visited places in the UK.
Manchester’s unexpected urbanisation is owed mainly to a boom in ‘textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution’ whilst becoming the world’s first industrial city. The city’s tendency to ‘pioneer’ continued, as it brags to be the site of the first railway station and it is also the place where scientists first split the atom. Manchester’s architecture stretches the spectrum: with red brick equally balanced with contemporary buildings, and with two major universities, Manchester is a vibrant part of the British landscape.
