Manchester

Manchester is known as one of the UK's main cities: beside London, the Greater Manchester area is the country's biggest centre for the financial and professional services sector, with 324,000 Manchester staff and generating £16.2 billion of GVA annually.

The city is notable for many things: its beautiful architecture, which ranges from Victorian inspiration to contemporary styles, its famous sports clubs and even its scientific output. After all, it was at the University of Manchester that Ernest Rutherford first split the atom, in 1917 precisely!
