Things to see & do in Manchester

Manchester is a city borough of Greater Manchester, England. Manchester was granted city status in 1853. This once industrial city has reinvented itself as a truly contemporary metropolis, with modern landmark buildings. 

The city has many attractions from the museums and galleries, to sports stadiums and music venues. Many of Manchester's 90 or so museums are free, including the galleries at the world-famous Lowry Centre. 

Manchester is said to rival London as a shopping destination. Manchester Fashion Market is the first dedicated fashion market in the North West. If you prefer the desinger labels then King Street is the place to visit. The Arndale Centre is full of high street bargains; and Affleck's Palace is a labyrinth of independent boutiques.
