Tourist information guide to Manchester   by Ms Leisha Greenfield

Manchester is world renowned as the first industrialised city in the world, but the city also boasts an important cultural and musical heritage. The city's role in showcasing innovative punk bands in the 70s, and underground music in the 80s, cemented Manchester's reputation as a modern and vibrant area.

The city's nightlife, restaurants and cultural facilities rival those of the capital city, and the shopping facilities are unparalleled. Millions of pounds of regeneration funding have flooded in since the IRA bomb of 1996, and the city developed world-class sporting facilities for the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
 
Manchester's continued rise in importance is evidenced by the new Beetham Tower, the tallest residential building in the UK, and 'B of the Bang', the tallest sculpture in Britain.

History

Manchester was the first industrialised city in the world. Friedrich Engels wrote his 1844 treaty 'The Condition of the Working Class in England' whilst living in the city; and Elizabeth Gaskell was just one of the enlightenment authors to set novels in Manchester.

The Manchester Museum explores local and national history, and boasts an incredible 6million exhibits. Displays are separated by theme, and these include anthropology, archaeology, botany and zoology.
