A story so far ...!

Manchester was born from a hill called Mamucium between York and Chester. Flanked by the Pennines and by marches, it was an ideal site for the wooden fort that the Roman governor Agricola built around AD70. When the Romans left, the area was open to the ravage of Danes, Anglo-Saxons and the Irish for 500 years.

And now ......
Manchester is enjoying one of those seismic periods of change that sometimes grip great cities. And most importantly, people are in the town centre – living there, working there, enjoying themselves there at night. It has been a remarkable change!

From Salford Quays and Castlefields to the Northern Quarter, empty 19th-century warehouses have been converted into loft apartments. The result is the kind of "cool" for which advocates of the "24-hour party city" have long been striving.
Whether you wish to taste the food and drink, sample the sights and museums, dip into the art and the architecture, enjoy the music and the theatre or get involved with the sport you will find something to entertain you. On any given day of the year across this conurbation of two and a half million people there is activity to delight the visitor.
