Manchester, in England's North Country, is one of Britain's coolest cities. This once industrial city has reinvented itself as a truly contemporary metropolis, with modern landmark buildings such as the Lowry Centre, a thriving art and culture scene, and world-class sport. It's often cited as the world's first industrialised city, and elements of Manchester's industrial past can be found as you travel throughout the city.
