Manchester, the typical English town
Gritty but glamorous, Manchester has a re-emerging bar and club scene, a well-documented musical heritage and a happy clash of Victorian and 21st-century architecture.
During the industrial revolution, Manchester developed an important textile industry: you can still see numerous old cotton factories outside the town centre. The magnificent carved stalls inside the gothic cathedral of Manchester are worth a detour.
Admire the most important public edifice in England from the Victorian period: the City Hall in neo-gothic style, situated on Albert Square. You will also be amazed by the extraordinary skyscrapers from the 1960’s and 1970’s. Manchester offers a lot of fascinating museums and art galleries. The Manchester Art Gallery invites you to discover an interesting collection of artworks from European artists and the largest Pre-Raphaelite collection of the United-Kingdom.
Don’t miss the world-famous gay village with its lively pubs and its gay supermarket, the first one opened in the United-Kingdom.
