Over it’s rich industrial past, Manchester has paved the way with a wealth of innovations and ideas. From the city that split the atom and created the first programmable computer to introducing the first professional football league, Manchester is known as a city of firsts.

Over the years Manchester has undergone a series of transformations, from an industrial heartland to the vibrant and exciting city and transport hub it is today. A brilliant example of Manchester’s transformative landscape is Salford Quays, part of the Greater Manchester conurbation. Once a hub for the city’s docklands and canals, today this contemporary waterfront destination, is now home to some of the most spectacular attractions, museums and iconic buildings in the UK, not to mention the home of the BBC at MediaCityUK.

Visit Manchester’s website provides a rich resource for the city.
