General Information About The City:

The city started as a Roman fort settlement way back in 75AD and is now the second-most populous urban area in England, and has a thriving textiles industry which was made possible through creating the Port of Manchester on Mersey River which directly links the city to the Irish Sea. However, it still holds much of its Middle Age architectural charm, while still being a culture, media link, and scientific research hub.

The public transportation system is world-class though, with highly accessible tram and bus routes, which helped the city achieve its rating as the second-best location on the “Places To Invest in Property in the UK” list. Additionally, cycling for transportation and leisure is encouraged, so the infrastructure is there should you prefer this mode of sightseeing.
