About Manchester

Find out all about Manchester

.
  • Manchester, a city in the county of Greater Manchester urban county, northwestern England. Most of the city, including the historic core, is in the county of Lancashire, but it includes an area south of the River Mersey in the county of Cheshire.
  • The mid-20th century saw a decline in Manchester’s industrial importance, prompting a depression in social and economic conditions. Subsequent investment, gentrification, and rebranding from the 1990s onwards changed its fortunes.
  • Originally shaped by its success during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, Manchester’s strong, pioneering character endures today – only now its achievements also include shaking up the music scene, nurturing artistic creativity and hosting international sporting events.
