A major city in Northwest England, Manchester is considered by some as England’s second city. This metropolitan borough is noted to be a center of the arts and media and is well-known all throughout for its sporting connections, being home to Manchester City and Manchester United football clubs as well as the Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Named from the old Roman name Mamuciam and the Old English ceaster, the city of Manchester is known throughout as The Cotton City because the during the Industrial Revolution the city produced mainly textiles. Manchester is also referred to as The Rainy City due to its high levels of precipitation but more popularly Manchester has developed the title ‘Madchester’ brought about by the city’s notorious music scene.

Manchester has long since shed its image of being an industrial wasteland. Abandoned warehouses were transformed to sleek new loft apartments and museums has turned up from what had been piled up rustic equipment on salvage yards. Even Manchester’s old Victorian architecture got an image boost. Manchester overall, exhibited a gritty kind of appeal.

The city’s attractions include Castlefield, Manchester’s historic core, the place where the city had its origins. Local authorities have designated Castlefield recently as an urban heritage park.
