Why You Need to Visit Manchester

From The Smiths and Oasis to Vimto and vegetarianism in the UK, from the Industrial Revolution to football stadiums…Manchester is a city rich in culture, history, and flavours!

The diversity of food in Manchester is a reflection of the diversity of the city’s residents, and the residents of Manchester have made headlines for a variety of reasons as they’ve transformed British law and society over the years.

Manchester is known as a radical hotspot, where the likes of the Suffragettes rallied as often as trade unions went on strike for fair labour policies. This city is and always has been for the people.

Of course, it’s also just a fun city break spot with tons of great nightlife and awesome shopping, too!

If you’re a football fan, you have to head to Old Trafford and/or Etihad Stadium, depending on your loyalties.

If you’re a foodie, you need to visit Chinatown — Manchester’s Chinatown is one of the largest in all of Europe!

If you’re into museums, head to the Science and Industry Museum and the People’s History Museum.

Whatever it is that strikes your fancy, Manchester has it! Plus, Mancunians are some of the friendliest people who love to chat, so you’ll surely enjoy your visit.
