Coined the ‘Capital of the North’, Manchester is a cosmopolitan hub of culture with influential arts, music, and sporting scenes, as well as a selection of world-class museums and art galleries. The bohemian Northern Quarter is popular for its independent shops, bars, traditional pubs, and enticing food-scene, and is a must-see during your trip. Manchester’s main commercial centres are Spinningfields, Mosley Street, Deansgate, King Street, and Piccadilly. MediaCityUK is based on the banks of Manchester Ship Canal in Salford.
